There will be times in your life when you have to learn from the things that hurt you the most. If you do not you are not progressing. It comes with the hazard of living. There are many hazards, traps and wrong directions in the journey of life. To be honest, it is not the journey that makes you stronger, It is usually the survival of all these hazards and traps in question.
Survival teaches people valuable lessons that are rarely learned from others or passed down by parents. These lessons are best learned from our mistakes and bad events directed us. How we deal with it before, during and after of that time period will define what happens next.
The before can be called the preparation, the during can be the action, the after can be the resolution.
Just like how someone might have been saving money for a long period something he decided to do on a strong whim. He gets a random emergency if he never had that cache of money he would be in problems.
This shows good preparation. While good and proper action would be him taking the emergency seriously and responding in kind with money in tow. A good resolution might be to make sure he continues saving money to secure against future emergencies that require money or better yet save even more.
Thinking about it, you have to move forward and as you survive life and learn these lessons you get better at dealing with them and more powerful overall.
You never get more powerful in video games without skills and experience. Same applies to life. You need internal (body) and external (objects) resources to get ahead in life. Your internal competencies will be the most important in any journey.
Though objects such as cars, laptops can be useful and give a well-needed boost to your progression in life. It is you who drives the progression and walk that road, if you are weak mentally trust me, no amount of material objects can get further in life.
After all, they are inanimate objects. What could they do for you? You have to do it yourself, my friends. Learn and move on, that is the main goal of life.
