In 1508, Michelangelo was forced into a job he loathed.  For 4 years, he struggled with an abusive boss and horrible working conditions, doing a job he wasn't trained to do. In the end,  he created one of the greatest works of art man has ever made. That's what makes him a great man. Perhaps those who "can't" handle a difficult job should remember that sometimes the greatest beauty comes out of commitment in spite of difficulty.  We are known for our work, not our circumstances.
