Overcoming Adversity


2014-0228 Edgevolution LogoThe company that created the following video typically provides services to the real estate industry. In case you are curious as to why I chose to include the video in a post about overcoming adversity, just watch the video and you will understand.

There is actually a strong connection between the real estate industry and adversity. As a result of the huge decline in the real estate market during the past several years, many people have been affected by loss of income, loss of employment, foreclosure, and depression. The change has left many former employees and homeowners wondering “where am I now?”  Similarly, many people who are affected, directly or indirectly by adversity (brain injury, stroke, seizure, ataxia, etc.) are “mourning” the loss of their old normal and asking themselves, “where am I now?”

Thanks to Dustin Hughes of Edgevolution for creating the video; YouTube for hosting the video; and all of the other people who, directly or indirectly, made it possible for me to use the picture, video, and text in this post.

Even after brain surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments to eradicate his brain cancer, Scott continued to work; continued to study; and earned professional certifications from the Project Management Institute, American Society of Quality, and Stanford University School of Professional Development. How were all of these achievements possible at a time when Scott was struggling with the hurdles of brain injury? The answers are in this blog.
