The Drive to Survive

The Drive to Survive

On the brink of failure, all of us summon our ultimate strength trying to survive.

  • We learn as fast as we can when we are dealing with an emergency at work.
  • We increase our focus when our business is floundering.
  • We try harder when our basketball game is 10 points deficit, with 10 minutes left.

Without the challenges life throws at us, we grow complacent.

Tough time doesn't always make strong warriors, but peaceful time certainly makes poor fighters.
