What is resilience? Is it just a fancy way to characterize a hopeful, upbeat personality or a positive spirit of never giving up? In Positively Resilient, Doug Hensch aims to take a different look at what turns out to be a much richer and deeper concept than just bouncing back from adversity.Martin Seligman, considered the father of positive psychology, has likened resilience to clearing the weeds from a rose garden, which can reach its potential only if the weeds are kept in check. Human beings face "weeds" of their own: layoffs, health issues, stock-market crashes, threats of terrorism, and natural disasters are all too common. Americans are busier, more stressed, and more anxious and depressed than they were during the Great Depression.Based on more than forty years of research and twenty years of professional experience, Positively Resilient will help you discover:How any efforts toward personal change can be enhanced using several simple steps,That being psychologically flexible is critical to thinking through the mountain of information we receive every day,How to incorporate mindfulness and curiosity into your life,How our emotions help us to navigate our environment, andWhy true support and connection are critical to being resilient.

Professional reviews

"Delivered in his clear baritone voice, Paul Michael Garcia's performance is notable for his appealing palette of tones and phrases and his sensitive use of pauses. He sounds at once intellectually intense and personally inviting, a style that works well with a book that is full of life-changing ideas that use an intimate connection with the author to give it credibility. These are inspirational ideas, drawn from Martin Seligman's scientific work on positive psychology but crafted to reach hearts as well as minds. The author, an articulate executive coach, touches his audience by focusing on strategies from a subjective perspective--learning to be emotionally nimble when stressed, staying curious about new experiences, maintaining social supports, and keeping our minds and schedules free from extraneous, distracting content. An uncommonly satisfying audio to hear and absorb. T.W. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
