Adversity is seen as a misfortune, difficulty, danger, and hard times.  So how can you possibly find success in those conditions?  It has been my experience and the experience of others that during those difficult times you develop unknown strength and fortitude.   It is during those difficult times, that you have to stretch yourself or sink.  The people who manage to push past the pain are the ones who become highly successful.  My books are about those types of people.  People who say, I am going to pick myself up and dust my self off because tomorrow is another day.  -Deborah Watkins
