Does the world challenge only your strengths?
Without sufficient resilience, leaders and elites can stop their journey. Early successors often crash much worse since they have not built the muscle to be resilient. Some people develop stress-related health issues, such as heart attack, rushing into the hospitals. What makes the issue one of the hardest is that setbacks and failures can shut down the human mind and body when people need to see what they could not.
Many people like to avoid the topic to “stay positive.” However, positive thinking and motivation are not enough, which is why many great leaders and early successors cannot get up again. In fact, being able to face reality is critical in decision-making. In addition, nothing can give you more confidence once you are ready for the worst.
We enable leaders and elites not only to be highly effective in the “hot water,” but also prevent setbacks and failures, and develop the skills needed Ahead of the Time. Our success started at clinics in 2004. For those who are deep in “hot water,” we often find them the breakthrough quickly, for example, “Can He Handle the Job?” The best time to start building Adversity Q is childhood. Thus, we urge parents to do so if their children are super smart.
Empower Yourself and take charge of your success and health. Everything else will be easier once you are ready for the worst.
