When fate throws you a dagger of adversity you have a choice. You can either catch it by the blade or the handle.
The key to how you catch it will determine very often the course your life will take. Adversity, in some shape or form, is something all of us experience.
But it is the development of coping skills in the present that will chart our course for tomorrow and beyond.
Learn to recognize the inevitable and co-operate with it. If you catch the dagger of adversity by the blade you are not cooperating with the inevitable. You will continue to be cut, wounded and weakened. When you choose to catch the dagger of adversity by the handle, you can now use it as an opportunity to carve a new path to a better place.
