Once you have established what you stand for, your role in the world, the first test is with yourself. It’s a test of determination in which you are opposed to the infinite opportunities of life.
The second test is with your culture. It’s a test of conviction in the face of what came before you, how things have always been.
The third and final test is with others. It’s a test of acceptance of different points of view, and of the fact that such different points of views do not diminish the validity of your own.
