Robyn Benincasa has lived a very interesting life While I have met and known many strong women I can honestly state that I can’t think of anyone who has engaged in the kind of high adrenaline life activities as she hasShe has a very reasonable point that these grueling race adventures taught her life lessons about individual fortitude personal commitment and it’s important that your head is always in the right place I’m uite sure that she has learned a lot about teamwork and the secret sauce in making teams work effectively and efficiently She really does have some great and pithy sound bites about commitment showing itself when the fun stops and others that you’ll find yourself nodding your head in agreement with herHer book does give a good indication of her ability to perform well as a motivational speaker and there are Youtube videos available and information how to contact her to arrange that kind of engagementI will give Robyn the greatest amount of credit for pointing out the importance of personal development and self improvement that all of us need at any time and stage of our lives It’s not just the adventure racers who should know that being anti fragile approachable credit sharing and keeping a can do spirit is the right way to approach life and its obstacles I also really enjoyed her emphasis that being willing to ask for help and tutorials is not a sign of weakness That may not be our first or “knee jerk” response when we have a problem that is resistant to easy solving activities Mentoring and modeling your own behavior off of an appropriate role model is not emphasized enough It takes a certain humility to ask for help Robyn drives that point home This book is very worthwhile for anyone who is seeking self improvement as well as leadershipteamwork development She does have the ability to inspire That’s a good compliment for a motivational speaker Inspiring and easy to readFantastic insights on how to exercise grit and determination in the toughest races Easy to read and full of great tips the book will hit a chord with athletes and many others who are fascinated with extreme sports and the like robyn has a very personal style of writing which made it a uick read the 8 points she elaborated on are nothing really new you may have heard them before but the stories behind them are what makes it a good read
