By: Pasricha, Neil.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: New Delhi Gallery Books 2019Description: xx, 265 p. includes bibliographical references.ISBN: 9781982135881.Subject(s): Resilience - Personality trait | Self-actualization - Psychology | ChangeDDC classification: 155.24 Summary: We are lucky. For most of us, famine, plague, economic depression, and other life-threatening catastrophes are the stuff of history books. We’re living in an era with the highest-ever rates of longevity, education, and wealth. Cars drive us home as our phones entertain us before we arrive to food delivered to the front door. We have it all! But there’s just one side effect. We no longer have the tools to handle failure...or even perceived failure. When we fall, we lie on the sidewalk crying. When we spill, we splatter. When we crack, we shatter. We are turning into an army of porcelain dolls. A rude email from the boss means calling in sick. Only two likes on our post means we don’t have friends. Cell phones show us we’re never good enough. Yesterday’s butterflies are tomorrow’s panic attacks. Record numbers of students have clinical anxiety. And what about depression, loneliness, and suicide? All rising! What do we desperately need to learn? RESILIENCE. And we need to learn it fast. Read You Are Awesome to learn: • The single word that keeps your options open after failure • What every commencement speech gets wrong • 3 ways to dramatically accelerate your ability to learn and adapt • The 2-minute morning practice that helps eliminate worry • Why you need an Untouchable Day (and how to get one) • and much, much more... Because the truth is, you really are awesome. https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/You-Are-Awesome/Neil-Pasricha/9781982135881

We are lucky. For most of us, famine, plague, economic depression, and other life-threatening catastrophes are the stuff of history books.
