Terry Ballantyne: There is a fundamental relationship between adversity and long term success.
Over the years, surveys and academic studies have proven conclusively that the attitude of people is the single biggest factor in human success and accomplishment. It is more important than skill, success or technical ability.
Since the key to growing a successful business is the effectiveness of it’s people, the attitudes of it’s people should be a strategic concern of business leaders. Nothing impacts attitude more negatively than adversity.
Nobody likes adversity, but everyone experiences adversity. Adversity presents obstacles and difficulty and people prefer softer ways. Adversity presents roadblocks to goals, plans and dreams. Adversity produces inconvenience and provides the means for people to complain and find fault. These inconveniences are like big rocks that get dropped in our path and winning requires that we keep hammering the rocks of adversity to overcome and win!
Terry Ballantyne teaches that the right kind of attitude allows people to see adversity as more of an opportunity than a problem. The difference between winning and losing boils down to how well people are able to keep hammering those rocks into dust and using that to propel themselves to higher levles of productivity and success. The ability to turn adversity into an asset is the result of a nurturing a mindset that every person can develop.
Terry Ballantynes program “Hammering the Rocks of Adversity” provides powerful tools people can use immediately to help them acheive levels of success they’ve only dreamed of. It is said that neccessity is the mother of invention.
