The Top 10 Traits of Highly Resilient People

You have the power to recover, rise and thrive!
Resilience is an inborn trait. It is part of your innate survival capacity. This means you can rebound after a setback and even bounce forward with more strength and wisdom. This potential can be nurtured and enhanced. You can proactively and consciously choose to develop your ability to manage stress, recover from burnout and thrive despite extreme challenges by developing a stress-resistant personality. This book will show you how.
In The Top 10 Traits of Highly Resilient People, Dr. Andrea Pennington presents 21 real life stories of people from various backgrounds and cultures who have dug deep within themselves to heal and move forward after facing difficult circumstances. These were sometimes life threatening, and often led to rock bottom or burnout. What these stories all have in common is how they prove that the traits of resilience can be built and enhanced with intention so that we can thrive after trauma, and experience more growth than we thought possible. There is great hope and inspiration to be found here.
This book has 10 sections with stories covering each of the top 10 traits of resilience, giving the reader examples from each of the traits that Dr. Andrea has taught her students and clients alike over the years.
What many people find is that they have 2 or 3 of these resilience traits in abundance, but others were barely on their radar. The aim of this book is not only to inspire hope, but to show the reader where the gaps in their resilience traits might be, so that they can cultivate those traits and become happier and more resilient than ever.
The authors in this book come from all walks of life with a range of life experiences; from the stages of Broadway and the dizzy heights of Dubai’s business world, to understaffed hospital wards, a veterinary clinic, and in places all over the world.
