Resilience Expert Stacey Copas on Overcoming Adversity

On this week's episode of the Escape Your Limits podcast, we’re speaking with Stacey Copas.

She is the author of the book How To Be Resilient, a coach, international keynote speaker, and facilitator on finding the opportunity in change and adversity.

At 12 years old, she broke her neck and almost drowned in a swimming pool diving accident and became a quadriplegic – needing a wheelchair the rest of her life.

She has created a framework of resilience based on her life experiences of overcoming adversity. By sharing her experiences of how she has coped, adapted, and thrived she hopes to help others overcome the challenges and setbacks they face.

There was a time when it felt like her world had ended, but she believes that accident was the best thing that could’ve happened to her.

How do you conquer life’s impossible challenges? Why is resilience more important now than ever before? How can you live your life with more purpose and authenticity?

You’re about to get the answer to these questions.
