Dealing with Pain, Failure, Setback, and Tragedy with Rory Vaden Episode 33: The Perspective Principle of Faith

Rory

How do Ultra-Performers respond to failure in their life? What about when unfortunate circumstances take our legs out from under us? Why do we have pain? When is the right time to bounce back from a setback? These questions and many more are the ones that I address this week on Rory Vaden Show as I share for free – for the first time ever in public format – my thoughts on “The Perspective Principle of Faith” from Take the Stairs. It is my favorite of all 7 strategies from Take the Stairs and this is a live recording from an exclusive session I did a few weeks ago at Journey Church, in OH. Since I’ve been locked away writing very intensely on my new forthcoming book (Procrastinate on Purpose, Penguin Jan 6, 2015) I did not make time to get a guest expert this week but listen in as I uncover:

–       How Ultra-performers respond to brokenness, failure, setback, and tragedy in their life…

–       Why “bad” things happen to us…

–       What you need to know about the pain you are experiencing in your life…

–       One of the worst days of my life and what I learned from it…

–       The truth about why we experience unexplainable tragedies…

–       My hope for you as you move through tough times in your life…

–       Strategies for moving on when you are ready to quit…
