Book Description

Professional athletes, surgeons, first responders—all perform remarkable feats in the face of intense stress. Why do they thrive under pressure, while others succumb?

What separates the two is attitude. Resilient people meet adversity head-on and bounce back from setbacks. They seem to naturally exude an inner strength—but studies show that resilience is something that anyone can build. Analyzing the heroic exploits of U.S. Navy SEALs and others who succeed against all odds, Stronger identifies 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

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. Whatever your profession, today's demanding world calls for a special kind of strength. This revealing book holds the key.

By Lucas Goldstein on September 4, 2015
Format: Hardcover
Sometimes we all need a good kick in the pants to get ourselves back on track, where ever that track may lead, but it is a rare occasion when the people giving you that boot all have Ph.D’s and one of them is an original Navy SEAL.

Stronger – Develop the Resilience You Need to Succeed is a crack team of experts cramming over thirty years worth of valuable experience into one surprisingly easy book to read. This volume will not weigh you down with heavy psychology, over the top spirituality, or tales of success that are too far out of your reach to even gain hope from. All three of these authors are smart, direct, and want nothing more than for you to get where you want to go.

Right of the bat they admit everyone involved in this book, and likely everyone reading it, has all failed at some point in their life. The goal is not to try and eradicate all failure because that would be a fool’s errand. We will always make mistakes in our lives, the goal is to get better at learning from those and bouncing back quicker every time.

They quote Al Neuharth, the owner of USA Today, who said:

Everyone should fail in a big way at least once before they’re forty. The bigger you fail, the bigger you’re likely to succeed later.

They refer to this as gaining “psychological body armor” and their key is personal resilience, which is comprised of five factors:

Active Optimism
Decisive Action
Moral Compass
Relentless, Tenacity, Determination
Interpersonal Support
These steps are all important and generally lead from one to the next. They dive into each of these points with a full chapter containing their philosophy behind it alongside true life stories of these attributes in action.

Persistence is the key to success!
Attitude, persistence, resiliency and yes strength these are all the keys qualities of a person who will succeed at anything she tries. There is an old saying that goes “people don’t fail, they quit” and this is what this book is all about.
It is chuck full of inspirational true stories of people who succeeded mostly by having the strength to outlast adversity from Pat Rutherford who is the first fully functioning quadriplegic to Jim Craig the “Miracle on Ice” goalie of the US Gold Medal winning hockey team who took what he learned about life from his parents and coaches and turned it into a successful consulting business teaching others how to win by being stronger.
But this book is not just about people with inspirational stories but also it is a primer on how to become stronger, how to attain the characteristics that make people stronger and drive them to get things done. It is above all an instructional on how to become a person who strives to and then does succeed by using the methods and tools described in this book.
From the book: Harnessing the power of optimism and self-fulfilling prophecy
Fours ways you can leverage a success-building model…

This is an excellent book that deals with life and what it takes to pull oneself out of adversity and be successful. There are many stories of individuals, we all know, and what they overcame to be the successful person that they are. The book is built around optimism and how the optimist successfully navigates and overcomes hardships that many just give in to. I think this book is especially important for the younger individual who questions what life has in store for them.

This book is like taking a vitamin that helps you build resilience. Interesting combination of authors a navy seal, university professor, and a CEO. I think their diversity and the celebrity personalities they interviewed made this different than any book I've read on the topic. Especially check out Dr. Ben Carson's section in the book! You can see why so many are beginning to buzz about him in the Republican Primary.
