Adversity, we all face it, none of us get through this game of life unscathed.
Adversity does one of two things in every persons life. Adversity will either develop you, or adversity will destroy you. The difference here, where leaders are made is that they view adversity as an opportunity not a dead end. Leaders know that adversity is a stepping stone that they use as a path to their destination.
Adversity, in a leaders mind, is something that happens to you, not through you. Adversity, from a leaders perspective, is a hurdle every leader must jump over. A leader won't let the adversity get inside them and distract or defeat their goals and purpose.
Adversity is the weeding out process to see who really is prepared and ready to lead, and lead well.
