“Adversity is like a strong wind. I don’t mean just that it holds us back from places we might otherwise go. It also tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that afterward we see ourselves as we really are, and not merely as we might like to be.” Arthur Golden

"When life begins, we are tender and weak.
When life ends, we are stiff and rigid.
All things, including the grass and the trees,
Are soft and pliable in life, dry and brittle in death.
So the soft and supple are the companions of life,
Whilst the stiff and unyielding are the companions of death.
An army that cannot yield will be defeated.
A tree that cannot bend will crack in the wind.
Thus, by nature's own decree,
The hard and strong are defeated,
Whilst the soft and gentle are triumphant."

 

- Lao-tzu

 “Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.” - Napoleon Hill

 

No human ever became interesting by not failing. The more you fail and recover and improve, the better you are as a person. Ever meet someone who’s always had everything work out for them with zero struggle? They usually have the depth of a puddle. Or they don’t exist.” - Chris Hardwick

“If you force it and try and make those things happen. I think that's when the course jumps up and bites you.” "I think he just lost concentration."

 

I'd also like to know why some people lose concentration more than others. If you know please enlighten me. I think a lot is teaching us how to overcome it, but why should we fight it, I mean it's probably a way to cope with what we are feeling e.g. loss of interest. And that isn't our fault.
