How can we evolve through adversity and change our lives? It is one of life's great questions. In Evolving Through Adversity: How to Overcome Obstacles, Discover Your Passion, and Honor Your True Self, author Seconde Nimenya answers the above question and demonstrates that the best way to overcome adversity is to go through it. Through her own life story, Seconde explains how to apply this theory by what she calls the RRU (reflect, rectify, and unite) model. Her personal credo to evolve through all adversity and achieve any desired outcome is to take time to reflect on who you are, then assess your situation, rectify what you don't like, and reinforce or unite what you do like.
Seconde details her life story, from walking hundreds of miles to school across mountains to being struck by lightning and having to hide in the bushes when a civil war erupted in her native country. Then she underwent culture shock as she came to North America and realized how her cultural background both helped and hindered her in evolving into the woman she wanted to be.
Seconde's story serves as a source of reflection for listeners about their own lives. Listeners of this book will be inspired and empowered first to achieve their personal peace and then to help create peace in their communities and their world. They will learn how they can evolve past adversity; forgive themselves and others; and discover, love, and honor who they are.
