Ever heard the phrase, "iron sharpens iron"?  Its a biblical phrase about how man needs man to become better (this is very paraphrased).  But I see this phrase being very important in life.  Not that you need other but that you NEED situations to make you sharp, and to make you better.  Let's say you are one of those people that everything seems to come easily.  How do you think you will respond when you actually have to fight or struggle for something?  You won't have the tools, the determination, or the grit to push through it.  You might THINK you do since everything before was easy, but reality can be very shocking!   Now, this isn't saying that you didn't work hard to become good.  I'm not trying to take anything away from your success.  But there is a difference between working hard and having to fight.  Now let's say you have a kid that had a rough upbringing.  Didn't have much support so he had to learn to support himself.  Didn't have a ton of help so he had to figure out how to find the help or figure ways to get the help on his own.  Didn't have the money so he had to be resourceful about how he got things or to learn to forge relationships in ways that he can pay things back in trade.  Didn't have any extra time so he had to cut into his sleep time to make up on skills or abilities when others were sleeping.  Take this kid and throw them into some life situations.  How do you think he would do?  He would probably be able to make it through just fine because of the skills and experience he had from the fights he had earlier in his life.  Obviously, someone with these situations could choose to just give up, or to cheat, or to lie but those are the ones that won't make it.  We all want success.  But most don't have the tools to get themselves to be able to succeed. These tools have to either be LEARNED or EARNED. And the earned ones are MUCH easier to recall and use since they were actually real life tested by YOU!  So yes, enjoy those nice cushy situations when everything goes great.  But get excited when it gets tough because it will sharpen you.  It will make you razor sharp and strong so that you are able to do battle again and crush it.  It will pay off in HUGE dividend!! :)
