Fulfilled Tip #7 - Bad things do happen to good people.
Stuff Happens. Stuff Happens to good people. Stuff happens to bad people. It's a part of this cyclical world we live in. So many people beleive that if you are good to others, only good will befall you and thats not true. Yes if you do good things, good things will happen to you, but it doesn't work as a protection mechanism from the ills of life.
I'm firm believer that everyting in life comes to teach you and prepare you for what comes next. If nothing is ever a challenge, you will never be able to maintain somehting at higher altitude. As in climbing and in life, the high you go, the harder it is to brieath unless of course you are elevated over time. The higher the altitude the stronger the lungs you need. Stronger anything requires you work the muscle. The way that you strengthen muscles is by usuing weights that are heaver than you are used to using. You don't gain muscle by doing the same ole thing. You gain muscle by pushing your limits. It just so happens that enduring bad situations strengthens muscles that you're not used to using when life gets tough.
Embrace the the tough stuff. Study through the rough times. Stay on your grind. Do these things, and higher heights will be calling your name. Don't want higher heights complain and fight the process. It's simple.
