Adversity is a part of life, we have obstacles in our lives every day and sometimes we need to look outside of ourselves in order to cope with these various adversities in life.
The problem with adversity is that most people never see it in a positive light. In fact, most see adversity as a sign that the world is out to get them. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. There is a way to boost motivation.

Recapture the voice in you… nothing is impossible.
The most important thing is don’t give up on yourself.
