Adversity Quotient - Lessons from Mountain Climbing Adversity Quotient - Lessons from Mountain Climbing Presentation Transcript

  • ADVERSITY QUOTIENT
    What we can learn from
    Mountain Climbing?
  • My thoughts are guided by the book
    ADVERSITY QUOTIENT
    Turning Obstacles into Opportunities
    By Paul G. Stoltz
    And inspired by my Love of the Mountains and the Mountain Climbing I did all those years ago
  • Your Dreams or Aspirations
    Creative tension
    Current reality or situation
  • WHAT IS
    EMPOWERMENT?
    Its about being
    Willing
    Able
    and
    Allowed
  • WHY MAY I
    NOT BE WILLING TO CLIMB?
  • IQ = Intelligence Quotient
    EQ = Emotional Quotient
    AQ =
    ADVERSITY QUOTIENT
  • CLIMBERS
    CAMPERS
    QUITTERS
  • QUITTERS
    Have abandoned
    the climb or never
    even started
    • Blame circumstancesfor their lot in life
    • Ignore their full potential
    • Are bitter and disappointed
    • Do just enough to get by
    • Take few risks
    • Are resentful of those who ascend
    QUITTERS
  • ‘Ah to come to theend of one’s life andrealise one has never
    lived’
    Henry David Thoreau
  • CAMPERS
    Say “So far and no more!”
  • “Never measure the
    height of a Mountain,
    until you have reached the top – then you will see how low it was”
    Dag Hammarskjold
    • Only achieve partial success
    • They live compromised lives
    • They fall short of their true ability
    • They dedicate energy and resources to maintain the statusquo
    CAMPERS
  • CAMPING CAUSES
    ATROPHY!
    Over time campers lose
    their ability to climb –
    they lose the edge
  • CLIMBERS
    Have a strong
    faith in something
    bigger than
    themselves
  • When they reach a dead
    end or overhang they reroute
  • Regardless ofbackground, advantages,
    good fortune,
    misfortune….
    They continue
    to climb
  • POSITIVE THINKERS
    Never letting
    AGE
    GENDER
    RACE
    DISABILITY OR
    OBSTACLES
    to get in their way
  • SOMETIMES…..
    They grow weary
    They have doubts
    They feel lonely and bruised
    They question their struggle
  • They recognise
    that even
    small steps
    pay dividends
  • ONLY CLIMBERS
    LIVE LIFE
    TO THE FULL!!
  • ‘Our greatest fear
    is not that we will discover that we are inadequate, but that we will discover that we are powerful beyond measure’
    NELSON MANDELA
  • What are you going to do differently, from today – to start being a climber?
  • “Nothing splendid has
    ever been achieved, except by those who dared believe
    that something inside
    of them
    was superior to circumstance”
    BRUCE BARTON
  • Thank you to Somerset Morkel who taught me to climb and who let me use some of his
    wonderful photographs.
    Some of the other photographs I have used I found through the years and I hope that the owners will see how beautifully they illustrate my points. They have not been used in any way for commercial gain.
