Years ago, adversity kicked my ass. So I followed it home. I learned it’s habits. I studied it’s ways. I went to the gym and got into better shape. I studied the arts of war and learned to out think and out fight my opponents. I learned better ways to organize and prepare. Then I sought out adversity. We stood there, eyes staring intently at the other waiting for the first move. I made that move. I thanked it. I had nothing to fear from it any longer. It made me a transform myself into a stronger person. Adversity and I still cross blades on occasion, but I’m no longer an easy target. It has to fight for it. Hard.
