Fall/Winter Lecture Series: The Afterglow of Adversity

The Afterglow of Adversity: Take a few moments to reflect on your life. When have you learned the most about yourself and about life? More than likely, it’s the times of trial and tribulation that informed and influenced your journey the most. Adversity pushes us beyond our previously perceived limits—our comfort zone. The death of loved one. The diagnosis of a serious illness. Grieving significant losses. Termination of employment. Imprisonment. Challenged by life, we can choose to be diminished by life OR emboldened. When considering the choices made by Sheryl Sandberg, Viktor Frankl, and Nelson Mandela, we realize that adversity often serves as a segue to positive transformation. Please join us to explore the afterglow of adversity—the opportunity to rise strong!
