Rating details. Sort order. Jun 14, MsSmartiePants An overview on attitudes toward adversity. Everyone gets some, some get more than others. Already into disc 4, I like the way the author categorizes our response to adversity on a continuum, but that's not exactly how life is. We don't usually respond in a nice pattern. My friend pointed that out to me today, and I agreed. We are more likely to slide up and down and then back up the 'continuum', kind of like we do as we process loss.
I am probably not going to complete this book. It has become te An overview on attitudes toward adversity. It has become tedious and find myself objecting to more of the premises. I do not agree that will is what needs to be mustered to push through adversity. It works on some, but on the unexpected and shocking adversity some of us have encountered, not so much.
The emphasis on will is discouraging in itself as we deal with complicated issues within and outside ourselves as we struggle through. The author does include a recommendation for building a support team for adversity, however, it's presented more like a business proposal and not the type of personal support so many problems require.
I don't question the author's experience and their records as having overcome tremendous challenges. They are both possess amazing internal fortitude and have persevered through very tough problems. I am just not connecting as deeply with the subject as I had hoped. Oct 14, Vinh Nghiem rated it it was amazing.

A good book to read, to make a big change in life Aug 30, Oktagerard added it. Certainly, it is a self help book. I pursue another point of view about psychological self help. It gives me what I expect. The book suggests that the obstacles are the triggers for success. The matter is how we see that obstacles, how we think and react about it! Interesting book. It really helps to overcome our reactive habits and start to think, say, and act more details and diligent. You may see yourself as a different person if you try the advises from the book.
