Life can be overwhelming when we are in front of so many challenges. Former Navy Seal Jason Redman says when a life ambush— “a catastrophic series of events that knock the wind out of you, pin you to the pain, and forever alter your reality” —hits you, you must overcome. Redman’s first step is to identify the issue and find a new direction. You have to REACT: Recognize your reality, Evaluate your position, Assess possible exit routes, Choose a direction, and Communicate it, and Take action. You must get off the X. It is entirely up to you how you handle these obstacles in life by how well you lead yourself and how well you lead others.
