The Grit to Overcome Adversity!



From 1994, David Lim planned and led a series of
mountaineering expeditions in preparation for the
eventual Mt Everest climb in 1998 which succeeded
after a nail-biting series of setbacks and
mishaps. One week after the teams triumphant
return, he was stricken with the rare and
mysterious nerve disorder, Guillain-Barre
Syndrome. Within days, he was near death as the
disorder paralysed virtually all his limbs and
shut down his respiratory system. Speechless,
unable to swallow or move and racked with
virulent forms of pneumonia, he endured a
"hellish" six weeks in an intensive care unit
before stabilising.He spent six months
recovering in hospital, including a
rehabilitation process in which the re-learning
of simple tasks such as writing, dressing and
walking were enormous challenges compared to the
Everest climb.Now, David Lim has developed into
a motivational trainer who inspires his
audience with tales of his mountaineering
conquests. He acknowledges that he could never
have made his conquests without the guidance of
his Nepalese sherpa guides.

Even if the paths are well-trodden, how
should each new team prepare?

    profit

  • or selling at higher price
  • Reduce costs of Overheads and other expenses
  • Any combination of the above

Old New Ways to Learn about Success


  • From Ancient Philosophy,
  • to win, the Leader needs to
  • Know Thyself
  • Know Thy Enemy (Others)
  • Know the Environment

From Modern Neuroscience, we learn how the brain
forms new patterns as it experiences new
sensations all through life. There is no limit to
continuous learning
Global Leadership Forum
12
  • How the Brain Works
  • 1. The Brain is a Connection Machine
  • It learns through linking information from all
    its parts
  • It hardwires everything and files them in
    patterns
  • This enables easy recognition for quick response
    e.g. fight or flight
  • This hardwiring drives automatic perception
  • This makes life easier because it enables us to
    carry out daily
  • routines without having to think e.g. riding a
    bicycle, driving a car
  • Its impossible to deconstruct the wiring
  • Old habits die hard!
  • Its easier to create new wiring
  • The neoplasticity of the brain enables it to
    learn new things
  • and suppress old constructs. Yes, you can teach
    old dogs new tricks!

Western and Asian Business Paradigms What
Western and Asian businessmen expect from a
relationship one seeks Balance based on
Equality, while the other is looking for Harmony


In Asian (Chinese) thinking, Harmony is balancing
Duty with Responsibility. Emperor and Subject
enjoy a relationship of harmony no way are they
equal!
Western scale of Justice depends on Equality of
Rights
