Shoot the Donkey Interview
Overcoming Adversity. Some Survive. The Great Ones
Learn to thrive
Steve Kayser interviews international bestselling author, Dr.
Paul Pearsall, author of "The Beethoven Factor"
Obstacles, challenges, and tragedies are all part of life. Unavoidable.
But lessons learned and shared from real-life experiences can
help us in our …
Life of Business or Business of Life.
To win at business or life, adversity has to be faced, fought,
and defeated. There is no other way. No options. You either beat
it or it beats you. Win or you lose.
Overcoming adversity is never simple. Ever.
Sometimes, despite Herculean efforts, you still don’t
win. You’re crushed, mangled, and left feeling like a little
dark spot in the middle of the road that vehicles constantly run
over, with no thought of the past history and life of that dark
… a dark spot that used to be a living, breathing organism
experiencing the joy of life.
Forget Just Surviving. Triumph. Thrive.
But what about those people that not only triumph over adversity,
but also astound you by propelling themselves to a higher plane?
Against all odds, expectations, or beliefs, they thrive. What
drives them? What shared traits do they have? What can be learned?
Paul Pearsall, Ph.D., the author of The Beethoven Factor, more
than 200 professional articles, and 15 international bestselling
books, will help us gain insights and ideas for action into what
he calls “Thrivers.” Thrivers are amazingly inspirational
people that don’t shrink from adversity, but triumph mightily.
They’re not any different from you or me.
What they have done is faced life’s unavoidable challenges
head-on, grow stronger, more vital, and in the end, savored the
sweetness life has to offer.
Dr. Pearsall’s writings and wisdom exemplify the Shoot
the Donkey key principle of:
"Taking decisive action to remove all obstacles to success."
