Adversity: The True Test Of Success

Posted on


Brain Tracy once said: “I’ve found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances, be more active, show up more often.” Life is a journey, and every part of life is a small journey, complete in itself. You begin with a destination, either clear or fully, travel with the inevitable up’s and downs, and you finally arrive at your destination. Your experiences along the way, and how you react to them, are what make you who you are and determine who you will become. The more experience you have, and the more you learn from them, the faster you become all you are capable of becoming.

Through adversity: the true test of success is another process in which we can achieve true success, but in the contrary, many people avoid it why? because of the up’s and downs, with the twist and tore along the way. He that want true success must embrace this process because it is what makes you a hero, it is what makes you a champion, and it is the true core of your personalility. True success in life is a succession of problems, larger and small. They never stop. The only thing about problems you can change is your response to them, positive or negative, helpful or hurtful. Most people quit at the first crisis or at the verge of succeeding. They easily give up and retreat to their cocoon, at lower levels of challenge and accomplishment. But this is not for you!  Your job is to view every crisis or accomplishment as a “test” to teach you something you need to know to be more successful in the future. Resolve in advance that no matter what, you will never give up. You will bounce rather than break. You will keep on keeping on until you succeed.

Now, let’s see how Joseph in the bible was able to passed through this process to become a ruler in Egypt. “And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren, that they strip Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colours that was on him, And they took him, and cast him into a pit and the pit was empty, there was no water in it”  Joseph was a man of destiny with a glorious future, and for him to fulfill his destiny, he has to go through the following: He was rejected by his brothers, because he revealed his dream to them. He was stripped naked, his coat of many colours that was on him was removed. He was cast into a pit, waterless pit for that matter which otherwise can be known as drought and famine. He was sold for twenty pieces of silver.

All these are what a child of promise had to pass through to attain his destiny. Because of all these things I have come to learn that true success in life is a journey of hatred and nakedness. Your coat must be stripped, it is a journey that must lead to famine and drought as the waterless pit. Your ability to accept them with courage and in good faith is what makes you a ruler in life and destiny. To me, to live a life without trial and temptation is the worst path of life. That’s why I agree with Thomas Edison who said: “I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward”. The true test is a process of true success in life, it is the only way that you can discover your inner strength and abilities if you hold on to it persistently. Adversity is what I called the true test in this lesson, it is the unavoidable path of life. Trying to avoid it is what leads to stagnation and frustration. He that want true success must see this process as the only ladder to the top.
