Dulcius ex Asperis (Sweeter through difficulties)

Clan Fergusson's family motto is Dulcius ex Asperis; you can see it here on our family crest. It roughly translates "sweeter through difficulties" or "sweeter after difficulties."

To think my ancestors centuries ago in Scotland lived by this motto makes me smile. Our struggles, although different, are nothing new. Humans have been struggling since Adam ate that apple in the garden.

Sweeter through difficulties is a great attitude to have. We know there will be challenges in life and business, but those hardships make success even better.

The sweet ain't quite as sweet without the sour, am I right? If you are going through tough days, always remember that sweeter days are coming. Just keep going.
