A little inspiration from my new obsession that is Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints.

“You will undoubtedly have challenges ahead that you will have to face and overcome. But don’t forget that adversity is not your enemy. It can unleash a power in your life that will make you stronger and help you achieve amazing things- things you may have never thought were possible…until now. If you take away only one thing from this book, never forget that sometimes your greatest victories can come from your greatest defeats. The next time adversity knocks on your door, stand up tall and do the right thing. You can do more than just survive. You can come back- stronger. ”

And his 11 personal tips that I think we can all learn a little from:

1. Find a mentor

2. Don’t give up

3. Turn your defeats into triumphs

4. Dream

5. Hope

6. Be flexible

7. See adversity as an opportunity

8. Don’t be afraid of taking a few steps back

9. Don’t speculate- Be ready

10. Remember who you are

11. Finish strong
