How Bad Things Can Make Us Better People:

Paradoxically, the adversity or struggles we feel buried by are often the very conditions we need for growth. The premise of this talk is not that we have to endure hardship, nor that we should seek to attract a life free of it, but that that difficult moments can be a catalyst for creating the best version of ourselves – purpose driven, strong, compassionate and wise. We just need to know how to respond well when tough times come.

Key learnings:

  • The role of suffering or personal challenge in defining life’s purpose.
  • How to confront bad times in a way that makes you better – not weaker.
  • How to enjoy the journey.
