Handle life’s storms like a buffalo

by on
in Leaders & Managers,Leadership Skills

New success guru Rory Vaden noticed that life’s little conveniences undermine people’s willingness to do the tough things that need to be done.

In other words, he learned that successful people take the stairs while everybody else waits for the elevator. If you do hard things now, he says, life will be easier in the long run.

For instance, Vaden observed as he was growing up in Colorado—one of the only places in the world, he says, with both buffalo and cows—that storms often form in the western mountains and move through the eastern plains.

Cows try to outrun storms by fleeing east, and end up running with the gale, making their discomfort and frustration worse.

Buffalo, on the other hand, wait for the storm to crest over the mountain and then charge right into it, running straight through the squall and minimizing their pain.

Lesson: Handle life’s storms head on.
