Lord Nelson, England's famous naval hero, suffered from seasickness throughout his entire life. Needless to say, the man who destroyed Napoleon's fleet did not let it interfere with his career. He not only learned to live with this personal weakness, he conquered it.
Most of us have our own little "seasicknesses" too. For some it may be physical, for others psychological. Usually, it's a private war, carried on quietly within ourselves. No one will pin a medal on us for winning it, but nothing can dim the satisfaction of knowing we did not surrender.
