"A man grows with the greatness of his task."
In Hebrew, there is a similar saying:
"Lefum Tzaara Agra." (Which translates roughly too: "As the suffering, so to is the reward.")
Adversity, hardships, challenges, pain, suffering--these all test our mettle.
Obviously, these are not fun, but in the end, we are forced to grow from these experiences.
- What doesn't kill us makes us stronger.
Sometimes though, they really can kill us.
So, push yourself as far and as fast as you can, but also you better know your true limits.
And we all have them, even when we think we're invincible. ;-)
