Como expone Ryan Holiday en este revelador volumen, los obstáculos no son sólo instancias en el camino que debemos vencer: también pueden ser una fuente de inspiración y, aún más, una herramienta para convertir las crisis en oportunidades, y los reveses en escalones para el éxito.
Obstacles are not merely objects in our path that we need to overcome. They can also be a source of inspiration, or even a tool for turning crisis into opportunity and setbacks into steps to success.
