Seeing Obstacles as Opportunities

Future You
Ryan Holiday
Author, Writer and Media Strategist
“In any and every situation, no matter how undesirable…we have an opportunity to practice a virtue.”

Ryan Holliday believes that while we don't control what happens to us, we always control our response. And as such, there is no circumstance in which you can't find good in something.

In a talk grounded in ancient Stoic philosophy, he asks us to consider that every obstacle is in fact an opportunity to practise excellence. In perception, in action, and in will. And in such practise lies the timeless art of turning trials into triumph.
