OUT OF LIFE?
A loving family?
Life is full of questions. How you answer these questions can determine which path your life takes. Think about how many questions you are faced with every day. It can be overwhelming. From the mundane to the profound, questions help you navigate everything from your daily routine to your career choices and relationships.
Sometimes, asking the right question is just as important as the answer: What do you want out of life? Is it financial success? A loving family? Career achievement? Maybe you are coping with a serious illness. Whatever your goal may be, you have undoubtedly encountered barriers that slow your progress. One of the biggest of these barriers is stress. Scientific research has found that your ability to resist the damaging effects of stress―your hardiness―can reduce stress-related illness and strengthen your ability to thrive under pressure.
Hardiness, written by respected clinical and research psychologists, will help develop your psychological hardiness which, in turn, enables you to enjoy more of life’s rewards. Mastering the 3 C’s of hardiness —commitment, control, and challenge— is essential to increasing hardiness and responding effectively to stressful situations.
This invaluable guide provides exercises and activities, based on 30 years of research, specifically designed to increase your hardiness in all areas of your personal and professional life. This book will help you:
- Understand how hardiness is assessed to evaluate and improve your response to stress
- Unlock your new potential made possible by a better understanding of hardiness
- Examine real-life examples and case studies of psychological hardiness
- Increase your engagement in the surrounding world
- Capitalize on opportunities for your personal growth
- Hardiness: Making Stress Work for You to Achieve Your Life Goals can help you move toward becoming healthier, more self-actualized, and increasingly satisfied with your life and future.
