The opposite of winning is not losing, it is actually learning. I send trials and tribulations your direction, not to harm you, but the harness your dormant capacities. A heart is exposed during moments of compromise.
A skilled craftsman determines what is good and what goes on to the trash heap, by testing it. He purposely places the work of his hands, under a series of pressures to find weaknesses, while correction is under his control.
If the craftsman fails to find his own flaws, others around him and the marketplace will. His reputation will shift from quality to concern, because he refuses to face the truth. A truth refused is falsehood commissioned.
Be mindful of those, that overlook your flaws too quickly. They may mean well, but they are undermining a system of correction, I have set in place. You are made better, by what is exposed and not by what is hidden.
For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.
