Publisher's Summary

Recall the moment when you experienced the most adverse & challenging period in your life, whether it was:

  • Letting go of toxic relationships
  • Loosing weight
  • Having a baby
  • Death of a loved one
  • Being adopted
  • Divorce
  • Loss of employment
  • Personal or Business related failure
  • Surviving College Etc.

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.

Great motivational reminder needed to keep ones goals in check and continue with personal growth

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.

A must read.

There are so many layers to this book. Reading it really motivated me to look inside myself and focus more on the future than my past.

Terrible Narration

The content of this book is noteworthy. However you will never come to know it because you will never get past the awful, often painful to listen narration. Wish I could have exchanged the audible for a paperback.

Awful

Definitely the least useful audiobook I've ever listened to. More memoir than practical advice. If it's a memoir, call it that.

Short yet Jam Packed with Incredible Life Changing

Like another reviewer stated, when I started this audiobook. I had no idea whre the author was going. It was interesting; it was heartbreaking. And then, I was beyond impressed with the message and life changing advice. I loved it so much that I bought the book. This book is awesome and I highly recommend it to anyone who is going through adversity.

Perfect Timing!

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!

Amazing Mindset Shift

I have read this book in full the words resonated so deeply it is now part of collective of books that inspire hope to change your life yourself with your very own mind. Listening to it an audible has backed all the knowledge learnt from reading the book so has been a great experience listening to Byron’s voice deliver this important message. We have the power within ourselves, Thank you for this book it has changed my perspective so much and I’m grateful for it! Jasmine in the UK :)
