Attending The School of Hard Knocks

Motivational Power Quote


Attending The School of Hard Knocks  

“Most people once they graduate from the school of hard knocks,

automatically enroll in the university of adversity.”

Peter McWilliams, 1949 – 2000, writer


As I see it . . . . . . .

Attending the school of hard knocks


In most schools when you graduate you’ll receive a diploma. When you graduate from the school of hard knock you will have your bumps and bruises and the life experiences to make you a stronger person.


No school can prepare you for the future the way that the school of hard knocks can. It will prepare you to get up after you have been knocked down and to successful deal with your life’s obstacles and challenges.


The price of admission to the school of hard knocks can be high but the life lessons become invaluable in pursuing your goals and in reaching your full potential.


Hard knocks happen when you least expect them and you will be graded on how you respond to them.


Attending the school of hard knocks may not be a pleasant experience . . . . but you can choose when you graduate.

My thing is to live expecting surprises and handling challeges as they come rather than worrying ahead of time. :)

I've earned multiple degrees at the school for hard knocks.  Fortunately the challenges have made me smarter when the next dilemma comes along.

Attending the school of hard knocks will not be a pleasant experience.  I have a graduate degree from the school and I can tell you I did pay attention.

Probably the greatest training ground known to man.  Its such a shame they took that out off the US school curriculum.,  NO, heaven forbid everyone doesnt win!
