Rebound Stronger with Fauzi

Stories of Courage, Perseverance and Silver Linings There is a saying: the hardest steel goes into the hottest furnace. I believe that we can always overcome adversities. These struggles can come in many forms. I decided that I need to start reaching out to people who have overcome these adversities, and learn from them how they used these difficulties as a stepping stone… how these setbacks changed their lives for the better. I record my conversations with them, so that YOU can also learn from these amazing individuals. Take notes, and take massive action to make our lives better!
