Learn the Steps: DEFY

Encountering limits like a struggling relationship, death, health problem, or job loss is no joke. Hardships challenge you to do the very best with what you have. To DEFY the Odds, you must:

DECIDE to face the reality of the situation and do your best.

EQUIP yourself for the challenge ahead with the right information and people.

FIGHT smart by controlling what you can and learning from what you can’t.

YES over and over to persisting and allowing things to emerge.
