“No mud, no lotus”

The mud, the adversity, grows the beautiful blossom.
Some of the most beautiful things in life come from the most adverse conditions.
Sometimes we’ll build it up in our minds that excellence and high achievements come through either chance, or natural talent. When our minds go there, we want to remind ourselves why:

It’s the easy way out to think like that.

It’s easy to chalk up an achievement to luck, or something someone was born with.
What’s harder to admit is that said individual put in an incredible amount of effort, perseverance, dedication, and resilience over repeated failure, time and time again, to get to where they are.
