The True Man is Revealed in Difficult Times

The true man is revealed in difficult times. So when trouble comes, think of yourself as a wrestler whom God, like a trainer, has paired with a tough young buck. For what purpose? To turn you into Olympic-class material. But this is going to take some sweat to accomplish.

Epictetus, Discourses I, 24.1-2

I know a lot of you are scared. I know a lot of you are frustrated by events that you had not fault over.

Maybe some of you keep asking yourselves “Why.”

Why now?

Why this?

Why me?

Maybe you were laid off because of this pandemic/recession.

Maybe you are a small business owner and are struggling to make ends meet.

Maybe you’re sick.

Maybe you’re tired.

Maybe you’re sick and tired.

  1. Two Bruce Lee quotes come to mind reading this post that I always keep in my head during hard times:

    “The great mistake is to anticipate the outcome of the engagement; you ought not to be thinking of whether it ends in victory or defeat. Let nature take its course, and your tools will strike at the right moment.”

    “Don’t pray for an easy life, Pray for the strength to endure a hard one.”
