Summary:

Step 1

Welcome back! Did you enjoy your movie yesterday? Either way, let's start today fresh.

Read the following quotes and think about how they may relate to you.

* “And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”
― Haruki Murakami

* “The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

* “You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”
― Maya Angelou

* “Your hardest times often lead to the greatest moments of your life. Keep going. Tough situations build strong people in the end.”
― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

Select 'Successful' when you've finished.

Step 2

Did any of these quotes jump out at you? If so, which one(s) and why?

If not, is there a quote you often recite to yourself to keep your hopes up? If so, what is it?

Step 3

Describe one instance where you benefited from going through something hard.

Step 4

How does it make you feel when you do something that had seemed impossible at first?

Step 5

Some difficulties are just not okay. If it was something that caused pain or suffering, then they were not okay.

At the same time, could you have become the person you are without having gone through it?

Step 6

What does that thought do for your confidence?

Step 7

There are so many of your peers who could benefit from your experience. How will are you to post your biggest achievement to your Campfire or Campsite - something you value so much that could have only come from one of your greatest challenges?

For example, it could be greater confidence in who you are and what you stand for. It could be your willingness to fight for what's right. There are lots of strengths out there. What's yours and will you share it with your peers?
