Listen as I discuss The Game of Adversity with Matt Wells on the Slacking Ambition podcast. Matt Wells interviews inspiring people who have realized their potential and are making their ideal lifestyles happen to try and figure out what it takes. Also, Matt chronicles his own journey out of slackerdom and into the exciting and scary world of hosting and producing a show, personal development, and entrepreneurship through the lens of a chronic underachiever destined for greatness.
On this episode of the podcast I talk to Nick DiNardo about intentionally facing adversity to learn and grow from it.
Nick is a successful peak performance coach and bestselling author of the new book “The Game of Adversity.”
Nick also hosts an awesome show of his own, “The Sweet Adversity Podcast” which you can check out on iTunes, Stitcher, and Soundcloud.
Getting out of your comfort zone is something that we all avoid because frankly, it sucks.
But the people we are today and who we will become tomorrow are in part a direct experience of the challenges and adversities we have had to face and overcome within our lifetimes.
If we are to continue to develop not just our skill set but also our character, we will have to leave our zones of comfort and do stuff that we would otherwise not.
This concept is why I think that Nick’s podcast is so great and why I asked him to come on my show.
The idea of harnessing the power of adversity and applying it in such that way that we can use it realize our own goals is something that really resonated with me as a slacker because I totally avoid adversity most of the time and just try to do whatever is easiest even though I know that isn’t going to get me where I want to be.
