Embracing Adversity to Create Resilience
There are two ways to look at the ups and downs of business: either see it as a series of unfortunate events or embrace it all as full of rich experiences. When Vivian unexpectedly lost her husband to cancer, she found she lost a great deal more than her life companion.
Unbeknownst to her, her home was in foreclosure, there was no money in any of the bank accounts, and her once millionaire husband was financially ruined. Instead of cratering as a result of these overwhelming events, she embraced her emotions and challenges, leaned into her grief, and used the obstacles she faced as learning opportunities. She rebuilt her life, businesses, and emotional health.
