5 Steps how to use Adversity to your Advantage

At some point or another, life punches everyone in the face. The punch may be hard, or it may be soft, but it’s definitely coming, and our success or failure is largely determined by the answer to a simple question: How well can you take the punch?

The degree of success we achieve in life is directly proportional to the amount of adversity we can tolerate. If we ever want to accomplish big things like building a successful business, becoming the best in our field, or changing your life in some way, we need to start training yourself to endure the pain all those things require. It’ll also prepare us for the next time life punches you right in the face for that is inevitable!

I am a living example! I broke his neck and became paralysed to the C4 level, a quadriplegic, only being able to move my head. I lost everything! With a stick in my mouth and a computer, I started to create a global company that designs and manufactures all-terrain wheelchairs for disabled people all across the world. I have faced some of the greatest adversities one could possibly imagine, and life has surely gone a few rounds with me in the ring but still I will never ever give up.

No matter how bad the situation, no matter how hopeless it seems, there is always an opportunity to turn adversity to your advantage. You just have to discipline yourself to spot the opening, and then find the courage to use it. There is a saying: If one door shuts another will open, but most of the time we whimper and complain about the door that just closed. Turn around, you will then see the other opportunities that surrounds you. Learn from the past don’t fixate on it.

Martin Brown’s presenting skills will draw the audience to the edge of their seats and send them on a breathtaking journey. You will explore the world of the seemingly impossible experiencing determination, innovation and the challenge of risk. His upbeat approach and positive humour sets the stage for a memorable and exciting presentation that will leave a powerful impression of achievement and possibility in your mind forever.

More about Martin Brown:

Here, a short quick read telling you a little more about myself, and why you should consider me to be included at your next conference or event.

Who am I and what are the areas I specialise in …

I am a serial entrepreneur and CEO of multiple companies. I have shaped my business skills over the past 19 years to become a multi-award winning entrepreneur, the founder and CEO of a multi-million Rand international company. Follow CSI on Twitter

My keynotes are based on my extraordinary life story, blended with my business experience. I share my experiences around creative thinking, innovation and guide employees to true inspirational leadership so that disruptive change can become a easier transition.

Why would I be of interest to your audience?

An inspired employee will give their all to their employer, and they are constantly striving to be and do their best; to use their skills and talents to their full potential. When this connection to meaning is made, leaders can inspire whole organisations and create an environment where a company moves beyond just providing a job, but instead starts to create meaningful careers for employees.

I inspire people to move from focus, choice to action.

Am I merely one of many, or am I the only one in my field?

My material was created and based on my own personal experiences in coping with not only being paralysed from the neck down but running my companies independently, so I believe my materials to be unique. Whilst there are plenty of speakers in the industry, none are like me, as I speak from my experience and a true life journey.

I’m still an active CEO down to workshop level, my examples are current, the research is fresh, and my materials ever changing – as we keep growing.

Where and when should you use me?

I am a professional inspiring business speaker that focuses on overcoming adversity and using it to your advantage. I create a whole new way of thinking and will leave your audience with your specific brief and take away values blended in my keynote presentation. They will leave inspired, refreshed and with an overcoming outlook on life. My presentation and materials are designed to fit into any part of your conference day.
