3 | Confronting Your Reality, and Maintaining Forward Momentum Even When All Odds Are Against You

Ever wondered how you maintain your forward momentum in the face of extreme adversity? How can you keep anxiety and depression at bay even when all odds are against you?

In today’s show, John shares his wisdom on confronting your reality, unlocking human potential, and a positive mindset.

Nearly, 30 years back, John had the good fortune of meeting Admiral Stockdale in his sophomore year at the Naval Academy. There was no better inspiration than Admiral Stockdale who had been held a POW for a couple of years, was nearly beaten to death, and yet miraculously survived.

So, how did Admiral Stockdale survive the brutality of his captors? Inspite of everything, how did he manage to cling on to hope and positivity?

With the pandemic outbreak, many of us are experiencing pangs of anxiety and depression. While it is tempting to withdraw into a shell, in today’s show, John reminds us WHY you need to face your reality head-on.

You will learn how visualizing your future can help you refocus on what you need to do today so that you can move towards your end goal.

“And many of us instead of facing the brutal reality, of all the things that are happening to us, we cling to the comfort that’s around us, we fall into the trap of being indifferent.”

“Make a choice. work every day, step into the sharp edges.”
