Often one would have to chew through the bitter chocolate to reach the sweet center. Thomas Paine, writer of “Common Sense,” indicates that the hardships of adversity enhance the value of achievement. One of the greatest examples of success was derived from a recurring chain of failures, as was the case with the Wright Brothers and their flying machine. Another paradigm of the crash-burn- win theme is the authentic “ashes to riches” legend of J.K. Rowling, who rose from poverty to prominence, to become one of the world’s best beloved fiction writers.
