Never Give Up—The Survivor Way

As we survive life’s challenges, we come face to face with fear and uncertainty. Challenges may allow us to step out of our comfort zone and push ourselves above and beyond our own self-limitations. What makes us is how we choose to overcome challenges. It is our strength in times of difficulty that prove our character and self worth. As I share my experience of being on a reality show, I encourage audiences to think about how they decide to survive on a daily basis. I encourage people to think about six words to develop their survival skills. With my six simple words, people can take on any challenge with which they are faced. 

Adversity is not so much contending with problems as it is learning more about who we really are and what is inside of us. Join me and explore true survival skills.

Write Yourself a Note
