Sometimes darkness reveals what light can’t expose. When you find yourself in difficult negotiations (you’re always negotiating) or any situation in life, seek to gain as much insight as you can (i.e. how you got to that point, what could have been done to prevent it, what can be done now to improve it). Such situations are when we learn the most and discover the most about ourselves. So fear not troubled times, they’re only there to improve you. Shrink not from the challenges of life, they only occur to strengthen you. Gain strength from your challenges; fear not troubled times … and everything will be right with the world.
