How to Overcome Adversity by Learning to Bounce Back and Lead Yourself First!

Welcome to Season 7, Episode #5 of Discover the Leader in You! 

With all the things taking place in the world right now, it would seem the ability to overcome adversity is vitally important just to move forward in these harsh times. Have you ever wondered what allows some people to bounce back from some very harsh circumstances while others don’t fare so well? I know I’ve thought about it and tried to determine where that quiet strength could be coming from during the storm. 
The one thing that I keep coming back to is a person’s ability to be optimistic and see their way clear despite their current circumstances. In other words they learn to lead themselves first during dark times. Today, we have a very special guest who understands  a little bit about overcoming adversity. Retired naval officer Chip Lutz is going to be joining us live in the studio today!
