“Persistence & resilience only come from having been given the chance to work through difficult problems.” –Gever Tulley


Welcome to Minute with Maxwell today. Hi, my name is John.

Gever Tulley just gave this incredible statement that will give you great strength. He said, ‘Persistence and resilience only come from having been given the chance to work through difficult problems.’ So, if I would ask you today, how many of you would like to have resilience in your life? Every one of you would raise your hand. How many of you like to have persistence? Yes, yes, give me resilience or give me persistence, give me resilience. I want that for my life. Well, I have an answer for you, but it's probably not the answer you and I want to hear. This resilience, this persistence only comes through adversity. We do not get it quickly, and we do not get it easily.

I have a statement I often give in leadership conferences. I share it with people who want to have respect and be respected by other people. I say, respect is earned only on difficult ground. Respect isn't earned when things are going well and easy. Anybody can be respected and be respectful at that time. But it's earned when that ground is difficult and you've got to climb some high country. You see, we all want the qualities, good qualities, such as resilience and persistence. But the question is, are we all willing to go through the adversity to get it? Those good qualities are on the backside of difficulties.

Thanks for joining me today on Minute with Maxwell.
