Raise Your Game: Suffering = Success - Learn From Superhero

Jul 06, 2015 17 Min Podcast

Most of the great influential leaders have one commonality – they have gone through much suffering and pain in their lives. But this pain has not in any way detracted them, rather it has made them better leaders.

If Spider-Man and The Avengers managed to become better superheroes by going through the fires of pain, surely you will become a better leader if you too embrace the joys of suffering.

Perhaps, there is blessing in disguise after all when we go through suffering. As the lyrics in the song sung by Najwa Mahiaddin says, “after the rain, comes the sun.” Keep fighting the good fight!

Roshan Thiran of Leaderonomics shares his take on why pain and suffering are so powerful in anyone’s leadership journey.
