TOP GUN TEACHINGS – ABILITY TO OVERCOME ADVERSITY
ADVERSITY MOMENTS FROM TOP GUN MAVERICK:
Maverick handled adversity with Rooster as it speaks volumes about patience, navigating uncertainty, and being relentless.
Being a Maverick in life requires you to go out on a limb, it requires you to not seek approval from others, and it requires you to be authentic to yourself and your vision of what you want to make for yourself and how to positively impact others in this life.
Life will throw you a curveball, which none of your training or preparation will fully prepare you for. It’s not a matter of if, but when. Accept that you will most likely not be fully prepared for life’s curveballs, and thus that’s your only form of preparation. Oftentimes this curveball is in the form of adversity. Our only choice is to accept the reality of that adversity and face it the best we can. Go through it moment by moment, day by day, and most likely you will be an example for those around you.
