Marcus Aurelius Anderson: The Gift of Adversity [audio]

Life after a brush with death… Could there be a Gift from Adversity?

Mike Tyson famously said: "Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth."

You can have a perfect plan, you can have perfect execution of that plan, but what happens when the feces hits the fan

Do you crawl away find a hole and stay in it? 

Or do you allow it to catapult you out into something else… Something bigger, greater than your perfect plan… 

If so, how can you do that? 

Well stay tuned because you are about to find out; our guest on this episode is… 

Marcus Aurelius Anderson he is a bestselling author, TEDx and Keynote Speaker, and Mindset Coach to Leaders, CEO’s and coaches.

While preparing to deploy with the U.S. Army, Marcus Aurelius Anderson suffered a severe spinal injury that left him paralyzed. 

After dying on the operating table... twice, the surgeons saved his life, but told him he'd never walk again. 

Having no other option, Marcus started doing some brutally honest soul searching, looking for the lesson to be learned from his injury. 

Once he started seeing his Adversity as a gift instead of a curse, something miraculous began to happen... 

Marcus now speaks, writes, inspires and coaches others to overcome their own Adversities to actualize their personal definition of success.

This is a powerful and awakening conversation that will have you reexamine many of your preconceived, most popular and even educated ideas about what real success is.

We'll talk about

  • The NDE (near death experience) and how the movies have it dead wrong!
  • We'll confront the inner demons and how to kick ass, choke fear, leverage adversity, and throat punch self-doubt.
  • How the person who pisses you of is probably your best teacher!
  • Why the advice of Marine David Goggins could be fatal
  • And Why everyone who tells you "it's all about adding value" is absolutely WRONG!
