A Smooth Sea Never Made a Skilled Sailor
"A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor" - Theodore Roosevelt
Being good at something requires experience. Through challenges and hardship will you then be able to face them over and over with ease. If everything was easy in life, then you will coast by with little effort. You no longer challenge yourself and learn new skills. In order to navigate the ocean, you must learn how to read the winds, set the sails, and adapt to your surroundings. Similar to life, if you're not constantly challenged, learning new skills, facing new hardships you will never grow.
