A Good Kick in the Teeth


I bought a quote-a-day calendar for my office and will share interesting sentiments as I find them.  Here’s one from Walt Disney:

“All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles have strengthened me. . . You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world.”

Anyone who loses a job unexpectedly or has a job offered pulled has been kicked in the teeth.  I like this quotation from Disney because it reminds us that difficult experiences make us stronger and are often are best teachers.  We don’t think so just after the kick, but with time and perspective most setbacks do make us stronger.
