When the storm hits, you have three choices: give up and become a victim; do what you can to survive; or learn to thrive.
You don’t need to have exceptional talents or resources to overcome adversity, be resilient, and achieve extraordinary goals. You are capable of more than you realize. You can learn to thrive. Bill Murphy is proof.
He’ll be the first to tell you he is nothing special, but he has been able to overcome an abusive childhood, post-traumatic stress (PTSD), mental health challenges, and unexpected crises to finish an Ironman, earn a black belt in Krav Maga, and run the Boston Marathon five times—including one on crutches. He’s a regular guy who is now thriving at the top of his profession, too. And in Thriving in the Storm, he explains how you can achieve similar success.
Murphy shares the 9 key principles and the 21 mental exercises that have helped him succeed beyond what anyone thought was possible. By distilling wisdom from other experts like Tony Robbins and Grant Cardone, sharing personal anecdotes, and telling inspirational stories from other achievers he’s encountered, Murphy has created a straight-talk, self-help resource for anyone who wants to transform their feelings of shame, anger, resentment, rejection, and fear into great success, happiness, peace, and an overall enthusiasm for life.
