The video of Heracles reminds me of a famous sentence: If God want to entrust an important task to you, the first thing he dose is to make you suffer. As Heracles is the greatest hero in Greek mythology, he is doomed to suffer a lot of hardships. He was born as a mistake because he was the bastard of Zeus and his mistress. Therefore Zeusís wife Hera hated him and she was determined to kill him when she heard that Heracles would make great achievements in the future. But she failed for several times. Until latter he killed his wife and sons, Hera realized it was a good chance to get rid of him. So she gave him 12 tasks that no one could complete. However, he succeeded by means of courage and tact. In my opinion, the myth can tell us that the hardship we suffer now may build the foundation for your future success.
