“What ought one to say then as each hardship comes? I was practicing for this, I was training for this.”
~ Epictetus (55-135 AD) Greek Philosopher
We practice all sorts of things in life but we never practice for hardships and failures in life. Just think how much better you would be able to cope while experiencing something in your life that causes pain, suffering, sadness or devastation? While one should not focus on hardships in their life, it isn’t a bad idea to strengthen yourself emotionally and spiritually so that you can endure any hardship that comes your way. People are very attracted to people who are emotionally strong and capable too.
