Self-discipline strategist, international speaker, and #1 New York Times bestselling author, Rory Vaden shares his personal journey, his wisdom on how to deal with disappointment, and key insights from his favorite of the seven strategies he lays-out in his book, Take the Stairs – the perspective principle of faith.
Rory's Backstory >>> Raised by a single mother, in a trailer park, tucked into the hills of Colorado, his mom helped him understand and master many valuable lessons as both he and she were determined to have a future worth moving toward. And, while he decided to make speaking the mainstay of his career at a very early age, he had two challenges he had to take head-on: he was young and he had zero credibility.
To gain the in-the-trenches experience he needed, he entered into the World Championships of Public Speaking. Although he didn’t win the competition (he finished second overall), the person whom he became in the training presentation-development process prepared him perfectly for the next phase of his journey.
