Course Overview

In the face of adversity, some of the most successful people in history have shown us the power of resilience and determination. This inspirational video profiles seven iconic figures who conquered incredible challenges, reminding us that greatness often comes from the most difficult struggles.

Amelia Earhart, the pioneering aviator, broke through the intense sexism of her time to become the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic. Franklin Delano Roosevelt, despite being paralyzed by polio, led the United States through the Great Depression and World War II with unwavering courage. Henry Ford, who revolutionized the automobile industry, was born into poverty and faced two bankruptcies before achieving success.

Abraham Lincoln, often regarded as one of the greatest U.S. presidents, endured numerous personal and professional failures, including seven failed bids for public office and the tragic loss of many loved ones. Thomas Edison, the prolific inventor, overcame near-total deafness and periods of homelessness to bring us the lightbulb and other groundbreaking inventions. Nelson Mandela, who fought against apartheid, spent decades in prison before becoming South Africa's first black president. Helen Keller, who was blind and deaf from the age of two, became a renowned author and activist, showing that disability does not define one's potential.

We all face obstacles, but the stories of these remarkable individuals demonstrate that even the most daunting challenges can be overcome. "What's Holding You Back?" is a powerful video to start or close any business meeting or training session, inspiring your staff to strive for greatness and reminding them that perseverance is key to achieving success.
