LEWISBURG, Pa. — In his book, The Adversity Advantage, Bucknell's 2011 Commencement speaker Erik Weihenmayer says an inner light drives success.
"Inside each of us is something I can only describe as a light, which has the capacity to feed on adversity, to consume it like fuel," he wrote. "By tapping into that light, every frustration, every setback, every obstacle becomes a source to power our lives forward. The greater the challenge, the brighter the light burns. Through it, we become more focused, more creative, more driven, and can even learn to transcend our own perceived limitations to bring our lives more purpose and power."
