My own frontline was in the mountains of Afghanistan just a few short months ago. During the challenging deployment, I faced continual threats. These experiences began to take a very heavy toll on me. After many months of facing these challenges and with no end in sight, I allowed myself to lose hope that I would ever make it home. However, it was during this difficult time in my life that I called upon the lessons that I had previously pulled from another of Greitens’ books, The Heart and the Fist. In that book, he explained the great potential for our perspective to help us to overcome hardships. During those long, seemingly endless nights in Afghanistan, I kept those lessons very close to me to find a reservoir of strength within me that I had never knew existed.
I’m proud to have now returned home safely from the deployment and finding this book at this time in my life is a true gift. Although my frontlines are now different, I continue to face new challenges. There are other returning veterans just like me, facing similar challenges in their reintegration to civilian life. Zach Walker is one of those veterans. In Greitens’ letters to Walker throughout this book, I have found the book's true value. Instead of merely reading correspondence between two friends, this book feels as though it is written to me: encouraging me, inspiring me and challenging me to strengthen my inner resilience to overcome hardships on my new frontlines. In that way, this book is written to each of us.
It doesn’t matter the source of your challenges in life, this book is an outstanding gift for each of us at facing challenges, overcoming hardships, and finding our own inner resilience.
Eric Greitens in his book Resilience explains his experience as well as the experiences of many other great individuals, philosophers, teachers, novels, stories, etc. how they have all cope with difficult times and how rise above it.
If you have never tasted true defeat in your life, you may not understand the true value of this book.
