Recall the moment when you experienced the most adverse & challenging period in your life, whether it was:
Now, think about that triumphant feeling you experienced when you overcame that once "unbearable" mountain, that is the feeling of a warrior and a champion!
Yes, you are a warrior! We weren't all raised to believe this concept, society conditions us that this term is esoteric and reserved for only the Greats, The Elites and The Gods, but that is not the case.
Imagine how life would look if you were to set yourself free from the restraints of self-limiting beliefs about past circumstances and began to accelerate beyond your confines? What can you do each day to active dormant strengths and recharge happiness? Well, The Power of Adversity explores the depths of these questions and provides practical, yet straightforward guidance.
Herodotus, the Greek philosopher once said, "Adversity has the effect of drawing out strength and qualities of a man that would have lain dormant in its absence."
One inevitable fact of life is that adversity will present itself unexpectedly, catastrophically and repeatedly throughout our existence.
Overcoming adversity is one of life's greatest skill-sets we could possibly develop. Cultivating this proper mental and spiritual fortitude is equivalent to building physical muscle. Commitment, Repetition and approach are key to obtaining the results you desire, through proven resources like this audiobook.
Whether this is your first rodeo of inner exploratory, or you've completely committed your life to the journey inward, this book will ultimately shift your paradigm in the way you perceive and interact with adversity.
The Power of Adversity is the self-help audiobook for those who desperately want to overcome past challenges, reach total self-confidence, and improve the overall quality of their life.
I'm not much of a reader so I was glad to know there was an audible version I could listen to. At first I assumed the book would be to encourage people to adopt, which I'd considered but never thought to go through the process. The book was not written for that reason, but more so to encourage you to be the best you no matter your upbringing. We all have issues growing up and no one lives a perfect life even if it seems so for some. This audio reminds us of that and motivates us to think positively about ourselves and our potential. We choose our future and I knew that before listening to this audio, but it's good to be reminded and continually encouraged. I've heard many self help books and like Zig Ziglar stated "People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily". Life Through the Eyes of the Unwanted is the bath I needed today. Read it or listen to it, you really have nothing to lose and more to gain.

Best audible I have ever listened to. I totally will be recommending this audible/book to EVERYONE I know.
If I can describe this book in one word it would be inspiring. Overcoming obstacles through using adversity as a motivator rather than an excuse is the key message that I took away from Byron Wesley's words of wisdom. I found that just through reading this it allowed me to reflect on how I've allowed adversity to defeat me and hinder my success in my past which is key to helping me make the changes necessary in order to see success in my future. This book has inspired me to constantly look at myself in the mirror and question whether or not I'm remaining positive no matter the situation/environment I'm in, which is key! " I look forward to Byron's next book!
The narrator is the author. which I loved. It made me connect on a whole new level. I will for sure be in line for his next book. And anyone who is searching and looking for an uplifting positive book. I totally recommend this to YOU. rock on Byron! keep shining!! I'm a fan for sure!!
I absolutely loved this book! the positivity in his words are so refreshing for any where that you may be on this journey called life. I am really glad that I purchased this book, it has opened my mind to new beginnings. I recommend this book to anyone Whether you are in a bad place in life or even in the best place, this book will definitely open your eyes and promote self worth.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I first started listening. I thought I am not adopted and while I felt bad for the author for all he had gone though I just wasn't sure how I could relate. I kept listening and found exactly how this book was meant to be read by everyone. Byron does an excellent job describing all of the scientific parts behind neuroscience but in such a way that you do not feel like you are in a college lecture. Outstanding book with life principles to implement. I highly recommend this book!
This quick read will most definitely promote self change and motivation. Many quotes should be written and posted so one can see daily. If you are looking to be the best YOU this book will challenge you to bring that YOU out.
