Everyone meets setbacks and fiustratians In life, and each tries hard to avoid them, only to find tbat they’re just like your own shadow accompanying you all your lives. The truth is，adversity can exert great influence on you, depending on how you deal with it.
When confronted with adversity, different people make different response. Some people consider it a stumbling block on the road to success, and get depressed and even sink into despair; others consider it tlbe stairway to great accomplishments and try to overcome it with constant struggle. The latter, therefore, will recognize their disadvantages from their temporary defeat, draw lessons from it, and grow stronger each time they have coped witb a difficulty.
In my opinion, adversity often leads to prosperity. Painful and depressing as it is, overcoming adversity endows us with great confidence that is crucial to achieve success. Great people are not born successful, they are great only because they have tempered their personality and remedied their deficiencies through experiencing countless adversity and defeat, which is actually a goddess of blessing in disguise.
