All the difficulties, misfortune and hardships we’ve to face along the way are the adversities. The pain and traumas we encounter in the process are the adversities.
Opportunity, on the other hand, is the set of circumstances that makes something possible to do, something we dream about or we care a lot about. It is the possibility to move forward and take actions.
And the hard reality?
We seek opportunities and avoid adversities and setbacks not realizing that what start out as adversity end up being an opportunity.
