As a Stephen Colbert groupie, I record his Late Nite show every night & binge watch them at some point each week. Sometimes bits get fast forwarded, but I always like to watch his encounters with guests that are often hilarious.
Stephen Colbert is a comedian, a truly funny guy!
But last night he had a special, more serious encounter with Sheryl Sandberg, the Chief Operating Officer of Facebook, about dealing with grief and adversity. You may not be aware that as a 10-year old Stephen Colbert lost his father and two of his older brothers in a plane crash.
Be inspired by watching this 5 minute YouTube video of their encounter.
When Sheryl Sandberg’s husband died suddenly in 2015, she was completely devastated. Two years later she is offering up her experience to help others in a book co-written with her friend, Adam Grant: Option B:Facing Adversity, Finding Resilience & Finding Joy.
“We are not born with a fixed amount of resilience. It’s like a muscle: we can build it in ourselves and each other.” Sheryl Sandberg
