    Overcoming adversity

    Halloween was always the author’s favorite holiday. So it was especially painful when, as a nine-year-old, he got overexcited and broke the femur in his left leg. Given his condition, as a person with osteogenesis imperfecta, or “brittle bones disorder,” broken bones weren’t an uncommon occurrence during childhood. But since it meant that he wouldn’t be able to go trick or treating, he was in both physical and mental agony.

    But then his mom asked a question: “Is this going to be a gift, or a burden?” It made him understand that he could look at the painful moments in his life in one of two ways. He could either see them as a punishment and feel sorry for himself, or he could see them as a chance to learn, grow, and become stronger. From then on, he would always choose the latter.

    Meditation, visualization, and mind-body healing techniques became his allies. He also learned that life was easier when he could communicate his requests clearly and confidently. This skill served him well as he grew up. He ascended to the position of governor at Boys State, an elite program attended by the best and brightest young men in the country.

    He then found a role in the White House during the Bill Clinton administration. He thrived in the fast-paced environment, demonstrating resilience and adaptability in the face of adversity. But it was motivational speaking that truly captured his heart. Interacting with audiences, he recognized the need for deeper change. Inspirational stories and quotes were insufficient; he yearned to help people find inner peace amid life's chaos.

    Through extensive travels and encounters with thousands of individuals, he made a profound observation: people's biggest obstacle in life was the size of their "BUT." This BUT served as a cushioned excuse, a reason to avoid change, to remain in a state of unhappiness. He became a therapist and opened a practice. 

    In the sections ahead, we’ll learn the six biggest lessons that can help anyone overcome their fears and leave their BUTs behind.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll

    Einer der besten, bequemsten und sinnvollsten Apps die auf ein Handy gehören. Jeden morgen 15-20 Minuten für die eigene Weiterbildung/Entwicklung oder Wissen.

    Viele tolle Bücher, auf deren Kernaussagen reduziert- präzise und ansprechend zusammengefasst. Endlich habe ich das Gefühl, Zeit für Bücher zu finden, für die ich sonst keine Zeit habe.
