About the Book

How are first responders, surgeons, and members of the military able to perform remarkable feats in the face of intense stress? How can a professional athlete come through for his team in the bottom of the ninth when all the world is watching? The answer can be summed up in one word--resilience. Resilient people have learned to bounce back from setbacks and do not hesitate to meet adversity head-on. While others breathe huge sighs of relief when they get to avoid a pressure-filled moment, those strong in resilience live for moments like that and always rise to the occasion.Don’t think you have what it takes to excel in those moments? Do you believe that some naturally exude that type of inner strength, and some--such as yourself--just weren’t built that way? Think again! Recent studies have shown that the resilience we see so often in first responders, military, and others is something that anyone can build within themselves.Drawing on the unique perspective of a standout team of authors (a stress management expert, a skilled entrepreneur, and a Navy SEAL), Stronger explores the science behind resilience and explains how you can develop this vital trait for yourself. Discover within these pages five factors that combine to unlock deep reserves of personal power:• Active optimism--believe that you can change things for the better• Decisive action--you can't succeed if you don't take the leap• Moral compass--face any challenge with clear guiding principles• Relentless tenacity--try, try again• Interpersonal support--gain strength from those around you Today’s demanding world calls for a special kind of strength. That strength is within you already!
