Turns out what doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger.
At the age of 23, Alan Lock, a junior officer in the British Royal Navy, began to experience impaired vision. An eye test revealed he had macular degeneration and would be legally blind within a month.
The Royal Navy had no choice but to discharge Lock from his post—one that he had dreamed of since he was a child. Forced to give up on his career, Lock refused to give up on life and set his mind on a new goal and became the first legally blind person to row a boat across the Atlantic Ocean. He later became the first blind person to trek across Antarctica and the first blind person to run the Marathon de Sables in the Sahara. In addition to setting world records, he’s raised thousands of dollars for worthy charities and become a worldwide inspiration.
We all love an amazing comeback story; especially those about someone who recovered from a horrible event that caused them to re-think their entire worldview and purpose and emerged astonishingly successful. Psychologists David B. Feldman and Lee Daniel Kravets call these individuals “supersurvivors.” In their bookSupersurvivors: The Surprising Link Between Suffering and Success they argue there are common characteristics of those who are able to turn a traumatic event into a personal success story.
Although the authors are careful to point out they aren’t advocating trauma, they say these individuals are extreme examples of tapping into the resilient nature that lies within all of us. Whether overcoming a traumatic event such as a sudden loss of eyesight or a minor setback such as losing a key client at work, Feldman and Kravets say there are four key traits that make supersurvivors so resilient that we can all learn from:

Summer #RealEstate ‘Renovacation’ Season!

Summer is great for vacations. The weather is almost perfect wherever you may chose to go. Most destinations are fully staffed and ready to take care of your every desire to ensure well earned rest and relaxation. A slew of pictures and memories will be recorded into your cyber data storage to remind you of the good times with family and friends.

Something else happens during the summer vacation season. Local retailers are fighting for business and are willing to offer all kinds of deals to cash in on some of those “vacation dollars.” Plus, there is another bonus. Retailers are always moving inventory a bit ahead of the peak selling season. Translation: upgrade your garden furniture towards the end of summer. This holds especially true if you’re planning on selling your #BayArea Peninsula home.

The real bonus comes with building materials. There are sure to be big discounts on basic building materials as well as a host of specials aimed at home improvement projects. An overlooked home equity strategy which often pays off in big dividends, is to use some of that built up vacation time to spend a week or so getting home improvement and update projects done. The key is to work on projects that will take longer than a day but less than a week to complete. These are perfect  for what I like to call a summer “renovacation!”  If undertaken with a little advance planning, getting those myriad of projects done can free up a few extra weekends of fun and rejuvenation throughout the rest of the year. The added time and savings from your "renovacation" will allow you to enjoy a few mini-vacations during fall and winter!

Gifts All Great Leaders Must Give
“Instead of instilling fear, if a company offered a way for everyone in the business to dive within—to start expanding energy and intelligence—people would work overtime for free. They would be far more creative. And the company would just leap forward. This is the way it can be. It’s not the way it is, but it could be that way so easily.” - David Lynch
