“Don’t wish it was easier wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenge wish for more wisdom” –  Jim Rohn

It is easy to stay motivated when things are going as you expected, but life is not a bed of roses. It is not a matter of if, but a matter of when, whatever would go wrong would go wrong (Murphy’s Law). When things go wrong like they often do, the key is to keep your head up high; this can be a daunting task during these trying times. As the saying goes, tough times don’t last, but tough people do.
