Danny: I have lots of difficulties in my school.

Jim: Oh, you meet lots of adversities, that’s good.

Danny: How can you say it’s good, I hope I can avoid it.

Jim: Adversity is not something you have to avoid. It is something to expect, something to prepare, and something to overcome. You will meet it wherever you go. In school, later on in your work and in your life. Only by practice you can embrace adversity. That way you will gain skill to expect, prepare and overcome any difficulties in your life.
