When Facing Adversity

$7.00

The When Facing Adversity IQ Matrix explores the steps we need to take to successfully overcome the problems and setbacks that life often blesses us with. This map is loosely based on the best selling book “The Obstacle is the Way”, by Ryan Holiday. It’s designed to help shift how you think about life’s toughest challenges in a positive and proactive way. In many instances it’s not so much about the adversity we face, but rather about the story we tell ourselves about this challenge and essentially how we respond to it. That by itself makes all the difference in the world.

Who is this map for?

  • Anyone who is currently going through some hardship.
  • Anyone who would like to understand how to handle adversity effectively.
  • Anyone who doesn’t deal well with setbacks and unexpected problems.

William Arthur Ward

Adversity causes some men to break, and others to break records.

    The When Facing Adversity IQ Matrix explores the steps we need to take to successfully overcome the problems and setbacks that life often blesses us with. This map is loosely based on the best selling book “The Obstacle is the Way”, by Ryan Holiday. It’s designed to help shift how you think about life’s toughest challenges in a positive and proactive way. In many instances it’s not so much about the adversity we face, but rather about the story we tell ourselves about this challenge and essentially how we respond to it. That by itself makes all the difference in the world.

    Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the When Facing Adversity IQ Matrix:

    • Acknowledge, Understand and Recognize:  When it comes to meeting adversity head-on it’s important to acknowledge, understand and recognize several key aspects of adversity that will help shift how you think about your circumstances. The first three branches of this map challenge you to step back emotionally from your situation; to recognize what matters most; to acknowledge your role in the situation; to shift your perspective about your circumstances; to quit complaining and rather see the situation for what it is; to identify opportunities and possible breakthroughs, and much more. Reading through these first three branches will help you significantly shift how you approach the inevitable and unexpected problems that life will often throw your way.
    • Take Action:  Once you see the situation in a new and positive light, you can then move forward and work your way through the challenges you face more readily. Within the fourth and final branch of this map you will discover that when facing adversity it’s all about taking small steps and actions to work your way through your problem. It’s also about future proofing what could potentially go wrong down the line.

    Stick with these principles, memorize and incorporate them into your life, and you will progressively begin to see adversity in a new positive and empowering light. No longer will setbacks and problems phase you emotionally. Instead you will meet these challenges head-on with a renewed sense of confidence and energy. And you will finally come to realize that it’s not about what happens to us that matters, but rather how we interpret what happens to us that makes all the difference in the world.

  • Mental Toughness

    $7.00

    The Mental Toughness IQ Matrix explores how to develop the mental strength and emotional resilience you will need to help you overcome adversity. Often the level of success you attain is proportional to the amount of adversity you ultimately face. Those who are successfully able to face and overcome the greatest amount of adversity are often the ones who experience the greatest amount of success. Why? Because adversity helps build character, and allows us to learn more about ourselves, about others, about circumstances and about the goals we are working towards. Then of course it’s up to each one of us to adapt accordingly and make the necessary adjustments moving forward.

    Who is this map for?

    • Anyone who wants to develop resilience and mental strength against adversity.
    • Anyone who faces some tough problems and wants strength to overcome them.
    • Anyone who wants to discover how successful people think when facing setbacks.

  • When Tragedy Strikes

    $7.00

Life presents us with many challenges in the form of setbacks, divorce, illness, poverty, loss of a loved one, debt, injury, accidents, crime, destruction and suffering. No matter which of these events comes across your path, it’s never easy to deal with them. In fact, it can be incredibly difficult to move on when tragedy strikes because it becomes such an overwhelming aspect of your life. However, tragedy is what you make it out to be. You can either allow it to get the better of you, or you can make the most of the events and circumstances that life throws your way.

    Who is this map for?

    • Anyone who is currently facing tremendous unexpected adversity.
    • Anyone who gets easily stressed and overwhelmed when setbacks arise.
