It is a rude awakening to discover that there are those who would find greater joy in our failure than our success. But finding a path to success in the face of opposition builds self-assuredness and inner strength that cannot be found any other way. When we succeed without opposition, the only real enemy is ourselves. When we accomplish our goals despite opposition? That is when the chance of failure is much higher – and the reward even more satisfactory. So don’t be discouraged when you discover those who hope for your failure; use it to strengthen your resolve.
