Moe and Faisal Hoque talk about how anyone can attain the resilience that s required to repeatedly push forward in the face of conflict.
The Game of Courage
It’s hard to imagine a life without challenge, struggle, or adversity. It’s the one aspect in each of our lives, so inevitable, that unless we learn how to embrace and even welcome it, we’ll never be fully alive. My friend and wise thinker, Faisal Hoque collaborated with Lydia Dishman to release a timely manifesto, Survive To Thrive: 27 Practices of Resilient Entrepreneurs, Innovators, and Leaders, that reaffirms why resilience is something you practice, not just a talent you’re born with.
The process of strengthening your courage is never easy, and will be uncomfortable at times, but, as any world-class athlete will tell you, with time, that discomfort fades, and is replaced by a new found code of confidence and capabilities. St Francis of Assisi once said, “start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” As you listen to Faisal describe his ever evolving journey through life, you’ll understand why he wrote this book for himself.
