Overcoming Adversity

I've been meaning to write about an inspiring segment I saw on the Today Show Friday.

The segment was about the first blind person to reach the summit of Mount Everest, Erik Weihenmayer.

You can watch the segment here.

Erik and Paul Stoltz wrote a new book about the expeirence which explains how to use adversity to your advantage. The book is titled, "The Adversity Advantage: Turning Everyday Struggles into Everyday Greatness."

Using adversity to your advantage is an interesting concept and one theme I've heard some amazing success stories from. It's a topic I plan to write about in the future so be on the look out for that.

Defy impossibilities.
