Description

You cannot bounce back from hardship. You can only move through it. There is a path through pain to wisdom, through suffering to strength, and through fear to courage if we have the virtue of resilience. In 2012, Eric Greitens unexpectedly heard from a former SEAL comrade, a brother-in-arms he hadn't seen in a decade. Zach Walker had been one of the toughest of the tough. But ever since he returned home from war to his young family in a small logging town, he'd been struggling. Without a sense of purpose, plagued by PTSD, and masking his pain with heavy drinking, he needed help. Zach and Eric started writing and talking nearly every day, as Eric set down his thoughts on what it takes to build resilience in our lives. Eric s letters drawing on both his own experience and wisdom from ancient and modern thinkers are now gathered and edited into this timeless guidebook. Resilience explains how we can build purpose, confront pain, practice compassion, develop a vocation, find a mentor, create happiness, and much more. Eric s lessons are deep yet practical, and his advice leads to clear solutions. We all face pain, difficulty, and doubt. But we also have the tools to take control of our lives. Resilience is an inspiring meditation for the warrior in each of us.

Professional reviews

"Our biggest challenges are not in the outside world but in our internal struggles to develop self-mastery, says the former Navy Seal and humanitarian Eric Greitens. He narrates with the confidence of hard experience and the natural flow of a top-shelf voice pro. His seamless writing and storytelling are made even more captivating by his clear and credible delivery. In the form of letters sent to an Iraq veteran in trouble, his vignettes and advice describe the importance of such habits as focusing your mind, controlling stress, excelling under pressure, working through defeat, and rising above fear to build courage. His nuanced understanding of these matters and arresting connection with listeners make this a compelling resource for anyone wanting to become a stronger human being.
