In this episode of HealthMade Radio, Dr. Michael Karlfeldt interviews Nicholas Scalzo about resilience in adversity. During this time of national crisis, many have become overwhelmed, some frozen in fear of the future and others left uncertain of the steps to take to move forward. Dr. Karfeldt and Dr. Scalzo discuss the action steps that need to be taken by both businesses and individuals to overcome the adversity that we are facing.
The questions answered include:
- How can we persevere through the fear and uncertainty that we have?
- Is it possible to look at these difficulties as an opportunity?
- How do we take this time to evaluate who we are, what we have been through and shift our living with the knowledge base, and skills we have acquired?
Instead of focusing on what is missing this is an opportunity to focus on moving ahead.
