Addicted To Adversity

Addicted To Adversity


The unfavorable fortune or fate.

This condition is often marked by misfortune, or calamity, or distress.

A physical un-ease. 

There are entrepreneurs who live this way. 

This way of being can be the presence for someone until they learn to change their presence. Or their being. 

This process can happen consciously and mindfully.

Or it can happen by force... such as when the body forces a surrender from full-time un-ease. 

This can often result in dis-ease. 

I challenge the entrepreneur who is addicted to adversity. 

I challenge the often default path of needing to learn "the hard way."

I challenge this notion of everything needing to be a scary obstacle that requires intensity to overcome.

What if that was not true?

What if we decided to see the path differently?

What if the entrepreneur who only knew how to live in a world of adversity learned to live on their own terms?

It requires courage. 

It requires conviction and a desire and a willingness to change the foundations of who we are in a way that serves where we are going.

This is the journey I value. 

I have found it to be the most meaningful. 

Because the journey of self is all we truly have.
