The Opportunity of Adversity

Amazing & inspiring talk by Aimee Mullins.

… Implicit in this phrase of overcoming adversity is the idea that success or happiness is about emerging on the other side of a challenging experience unscathed, unmarked by the experience… but in fact we are changed, we are marked, of course by a challenge… and I am going to suggest it is a good thing. Adversity is not an obstacle we need to get around in order to resume living our life… it is part of our life.

Should be required viewing for all coaches, trainers or psychologists.
