A Quote by Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar

"The most successful people see adversity not as a stumbling block, but as a stepping stone to greatness."

It's a matter of perspective and conviction.  Not only do you have to train yourself to see the silver lining in situations and occurrences that happen in contrast to your goals and desires. - But you also need to establish, what the belief that following through with that  conviction, requires.  Shape and mold your experiences in accordance to that conviction and grow towards greatness.  You make the choice between letting your circumstances trip you up or learning the lessons (of what not to do) inherent within them and therefor elevate yourself.
