Nine Principles to Help You Overcome Any Adversity


Praise for Thriving in the Storm

“All of us face adversities and the unexpected in our lives. Thriving the Storm is a book that will help the reader learn the steps on how to navigate those “unexpected” adversities. Murphy writes the book with passion and focuses on the needed persistence, discipline, and consistency needed to “thrive in the storms” of life. A great book from a great person.”

-Steve Jacobson, CEO, Fairway Mortgage

“If you need a second one for that area, please use: “Bill has shared his journey so that others facing adversity are inspired to overcome them. Focus, grit, determination all win the day with Bill’s story. When adversity strikes, focus on the goal and step through it with confidence.”

– Dave Bedard, author of Graduate & Grow Rich

Thriving in the Storm is a tour de force for man who has spent his life trying to better himself and the world around him. Bill’s refreshingly honest and very personal look at his own life and the obstacles that he has overcome has given me permission to do the same. The practical exercises make this book incredibly accessible for anyone interested in overcoming their own obstacles and are a road map to a successful life.”

– Sean Holleran, CEO, Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island
