In life are you the iron or the anvil?

“We are made to persist. That’s how we find out who we are.”

Tobias Wolff

Can you imagine who you would be today if you had never been tested or challenged? Those things that are our most significant challenges at the moment are merely the building blocks of the person we are supposed to become. Without them, we are only a shadow of the person we were created to be and can’t serve others in the fullest capacity.  

Embrace the opportunities to persist; those moments are the crucible where something extraordinary is being forged.  We can either choose to be the iron being crafted into something beautiful or we can choose to be the anvil, unmovable and unchanging.
