Trouble Can Help

Somebody once said that success without adversity is not only empty, it is not possible.  One of my favorite observations is that the only way to the mountaintop is through the valley, and in most cases, a series of valleys.  I think of one of the greatest books ever written, Pilgrim's Progress, written by John Bunyan during a six-month imprisonment in Bedford Jail.
