“The older generation shows us what toughness truly is” - Tai Lopez

Will Durant said, “A nation is born stoic, and dies epicurean.” This means that, at the beginning of a nation’s lifespan, it’s citizens are tough. They understand the true meaning of difficulty and stress. They don’t stress out over the small things in life, because they have bigger things to worry about. They’re tough, and they find a way to turn a horrible situation into something great.

But as the nation continues in prosperity, its citizens turn epicurean. The focus turns to luxury and materialism. As this happens, smaller and smaller difficulties stress citizens, until the toughness level has decreased to the point where everyone is so weak-willed that tiny difficulties can destroy them.

Experience difficulties. Toughen yourself up, and teach yourself that you can truly handle difficulties, and come out on top! Instead of running from difficulties, embrace them as opportunities to toughen yourself.
