Challenges Reveal Our True Character

Motivational Power Quote


Challenges Reveal Our True Character      

“Adversity reveals genius, prosperity conceals it.”




As I see it . . . . . . .


Challenges reveal our true character  


In our most challenging times our true character comes to the surface and it will show how deep our values run.


With deeply rooted character we will withstand the pressures of our challenges and not surrender our values for a quick fix or an easy way out. We will remind firm with our character in place.


Our character is ingrained in our moral fiber of who we are as a person and it will guide us to the right decision for the right reasons.


Adversity and challenges can test us to our core, but with our values in place we will remind resolved in our conviction to do the right thing.


Challenges reveal our true character and when that character is revealed we can stand above the masses with our head held high and our values in tack.

My friend always talks about "motivational depression" and how it makes him inspired.

My parents used to talk about this all the time. They were Holocaust survivors and would know, better than most. Thank you from sharing the post.

They say "necessity is the mother of invention." Horace seems to validate the phrase. Enjoy your day!

Adversity definitely lets character come through - one way or the other. :)

Hello Lou,

Another wonderful post.  (Good) Character seems to be diminishing in today's society, it is sorely missed!
