    Hardship—the Great Life Equalizer

    Research shows the following information;

    Hardship affects the wealthy and the poor; the young and the old; the corporate CEO and the teacher in a one-room school. “The human condition guarantees that each life will encounter natural and largely unpredictable trauma. . . . Leadership, by its very nature, is entwined with adversity” (Stoner & Gilligan, 2002, p.17).

    Given this sober dose of reality, the question that begs to be answered is this: How do human beings face hardship and how do they turn an adverse circumstance into a developmental experience?  Since leadership is my professional interest, the above question even goes a bit deeper:  Does hardship play a role in leadership development? Can people learn important leadership skills and competencies from their own experiences with hardship?

    These and other related questions led me to start researching this topic two years ago. However, it was not until I faced my own set of hard circumstances that I began to understand the life-changing impact that hardship has on an individual. Kolb’s (1983) cycle of the experiential learning process has been validated in my own experience; I was better able to understand the role of hardship in shaping and molding leadership by the concrete experience of my own and others’ difficulties, as well as by the theoretical research I undertook.

    LIVE with Cathi---Come Alive and Welcome Adversity!

    in Fitness

    Come Alive and Welcome Adversity!

    Have you ever been hit by a cosmic 2X4?  Most have and when it happens, we don't generally find cause to celebrate.  However, these moments of adversity are the spring boards that propel us into a fuller life.

    When you're diagnosed with a health challenge, most don't jump with joy, au contraire, anger, depression, anxiety and WHY ME set in.

    You rage at your Doctors, family, your body and anything else you could find.  However, this experience can be the greatest gift you've ever been given.  How you handle 'your adversit' reveals how strong you really are!

    When we face a challenge, it is generally highlighting an emotional pattern that no longer serves us.


    Be aware of...etc.

    Outdated emotional patterns...etc.

    Opportunities to change...etc.

    Conscious awareness...etc.

    What am I to learn from this challenge...etc.

    "ADVERSITY Trains Us for SONSHIP!"

    in Spirituality

    Much of what we learn about the "FAITH" paradigm is closely associated with the eradication of "FEAR." We grow and learn to trust each other through life experiences that create situations where we have to make difficult choices. These decisions define who we are through various seasons in our lives. We then become, for that particular moment, "who we are" within our circles of influence. As we trek through life we learn that there is much more to the story.

    This morning on P2T we are going to learn that "adversity" is the thing we have most in common with Christ...but NOBODY wants to talk about it...but US!!
