    Adversity can be a huge motivator to knuckle down and make things happen. If you have a strong enough "why" you are doing something and have a need to make something happen you are much more likely to make even the unthinkable happen. That's why often we see people who start with not much end up with a lot more focus on their vision and goals.

    May be that is why there are a lot more stories and headlines on how people think they will never be able to afford their home.....because several have had ample comfort to realise what is possible to shift in life, nor have they seen the opportunity that this country presents!

    "Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit."

    "Nothing can be accepted as failure until you accept it as such"

    Agree, the same reason you see people who have made it to this country from a background of adversity are the ones who work extremely hard, multiple jobs until they make it.

    Meanwhile the home grown bludgers winge about how unfair things are while they blow their money on booze, smokes, pokies, and assorted other sources of instant gratification.

    Certainly agree.

    Tony Robbins said something along the lines of 'you will keep doing what you're doing until the pain of what you're doing becomes greater than the pain of changing'. Which is quite true for many of us, especially those with a 'comfortable (but maybe unsatisfactory) job.' Until the 'pain' (or insert other word) becomes enough for us, we will only dream/prepare/... for making the change.
