I want to let you know about a great text to help you get your bearings and get going!®  "The Adversity Advantage: Turning Everyday Struggles into Everyday Greatness", by Erik Weihenmayer and Paul Stoltz, provides numerous stories about overcoming adversity and a framework not to rid ourselves of adversity but to celebrate it and leverage it as a tool to propel us forward in success.

Eric Weihenmayer, the first and only blind man to climb the 7 summits -- the tallest peak on each continent -- is beyond inspiring -- and his stories give one pause for deep reflection.  Paul Stoltz the takes it one step further -- giving us a model -- a recipe -- for turning each of our adversities into our inspiration.

I love this book.  So much that I am using it for the new text starting May 20 2008 in the business coaching group I do with business professionals in the Upper Valley who want more more out of their career than just a job. (Actually the group is not just for business professionals but anyone who wants more out of life!)

Why just read a book when you can take and sustain action?

The group, a collaboration with Borders Books, meets each Tuesday at 10:00 am in West Lebanon, NH. The weekly meetings merge the traditional book group with business coaching to accelerate the application of what you read.  Plus we work through each book slowly – one text about every three months – so coach clients can easily keep up with the reading. Borders provides the meeting space plus they give members of the group 20% off the text.

Of course, you can also get this book from Amazon -- I got the mp3 version to listen to (read by Eric):
