I was back in the home country and in the Rocky Mountains last week!
While on a hike I headed up a steep incline in the slippery snow. It took me back to one of my adventures in Iceland in 2013. Trudging through pouring rain and 60 mph winds as we climbed uphill!
I developed a few more gears in adversity on that trip! Once you gain those gears (imagine if you had instead of five, a sixth and seventh in your car – for those who drive a standard!) they don’t go away and are there when you need them, even if lying dormant for a little while.
Take the opportunity to put yourself in controlled and challenging situations to develop those levels.
The kick in the pants you need. Sign-up for a better start to your work day.
