Summary
"What is it you want out of life? It could be financial success, recognition of your achievements, satisfying relationships, meaningful work, being a more competitive athlete, or coping better with challenges such as a serious illness. Whatever your goal may be, you've likely encountered obstacles holding you back and impeding your success. One of the biggest of these barriers is often stress. Stress can be addressed in a number of ways, but three, based on 30 years of psychological research, have been found to be most important manifestations. People who master these three areas of stress, or hardiness, as we prefer to call it, enjoy more of life's rewards and, research suggests, they tend to live longer lives. We refer to these as the 3 C's, commitment, control, and challenge. This book contains real-life examples, exercises, and activities for increasing your hardiness. Learning to embrace the 3 C's can help everyone, from all walks of life, move toward becoming healthier, more self-actualized, and increasingly satisfied with their lives and futures. Together, we will introduce readers to their new potential made possible by a better understanding of hardiness"--, Provided by publisher
