From Afflictions to Success to Getting the Right Mindset

By: Jaime Neely - Oct 25, 2014
Overcoming adversity is not an experience exclusively reserved to personal matters -- it can and does occur in business and professional aspects of people's lives. These speeches demonstrate how one can transform an experience of adversity into one they can use to their advantage to create new opportunities.

The talk by Alan E. Hall summarizes the idea quite nicely. He believes that we cannot grow, change and reach our full potential without enduring certain difficulties. These experiences enable us to adapt and to learn. He states that obstacles make success worth fighting for -- meaning it will also make us fight event harder to hold onto it moving into the future.

Overcoming adversity can seem near impossible in a wide range of situations, but it is crucial to recognize the benefits it can bring.
