At some point or another in our lives, we’ve probably been told that if we follow our passion, success will follow. However, if you’re an entrepreneur, wantrepreneur, or have friends with struggling businesses, you can probably think of more than a handful of experiences that prove that saying wrong.

Achieve Your Goals with Hal Elrod

If you’ve listened to the podcast for a while, you’ve probably heard me say that it’s not what you learn that really matters - it’s what you live that ultimately impacts your life.  Why? It’s simple: if you don’t apply what you’ve learned, it doesn’t do you much good.  However, the irony is that how you live begins with what you learn. We can only live a better life to the degree that we learn what exactly that looks like, and what it takes to live it.  Few people know this better than Jonathan Levi, author of the new book, The Only Skill That Matters, which...

Adversity an inevitable part of life, and the reality is that all of us have more adversity that we will experience in our future. So it’s vitally important that we learn how to embrace our adversity and turn it into an advantage.

Personally, I view adversity as a GIFT and often our greatest opportunity for GROWTH, and I’m living proof.

My two greatest adversities (being hit head on by a drunk driver, breaking 11 bones, and dying for 6 minutes - at age 20… and then being diagnosed with cancer and given a 30% chance of surviving - at age 37) were two of the greatest gifts I’ve ever received, because both enabled me to learn, grow, and become the person I am today.

That’s why I’m excited to introduce you to my podcast guest today, Marcus Aurelius Anderson (link to listen to the podcast is below). He is the author of The Gift of Adversity, TedX speaker, US Army veteran, lifelong martial artist, and high-performance mindset coach for leaders, companies, CEOs, and entrepreneurs.

Today, Marcus joins the podcast and we talk about how you can find the gifts in your adversity—no matter what happens to you—and turn your adversity into an advantage.

Marcus suffered a severe spinal injury while preparing to deploy, died twice on the operating table, and was told he would never walk again. With no other options, Marcus began to see the lessons learned from his injury - and when he saw adversity as a gift, something miraculous began to happen.
