We find comfort among those who agree with us-growth among those who don't.

You struggle to understand. And that struggle gives you profound, indisputable ownership of whatever understanding you acquire.

Struggle is unpleasant. That does not mean it is futile.

Struggle is a difficult, draining experience, and from that experience can come great value. In times of struggle you discover and develop your strength by putting that strength to a meaningful test.

Struggle is unfair, uncomfortable, inconvenient, dangerous, painful, frustrating. Get yourself through the struggle and you have something real, something consequential, something that empowers every corner of your life.

You don’t always choose your struggles. Yet you always have the choice as to how you face them and what you do with them.

Within life’s greatest struggles are life’s greatest victories. Take them as they come, give your best, and seek to transform your struggles into a life of meaning, of purpose, of consequence.

— Ralph Marston
