Description
Two years ago, Eric Greitens suddenly heard from a former SEAL comrade from his training class, a brother-in-arms he hadnt seen in a decade. Drew Sheets was one of the toughest of the tough, but ever since he returned home from war to his young family in a small logging town, he had been suffering. Without a sense of purpose, plagued by PTSD, and drinking heavily, he needed help. He and Eric started writing and talking, nearly every day, and Eric set down his thoughts on what it takes to live a resilient life: how to build purpose, deal with pain, practice compassion, develop your vocation, find a mentor, create happiness, follow a role model, think about the story of your life and much more. Erics letters are now gathered and edited into a masterpiece of warrior wisdom. Resilience grabs listeners because its real. It grapples with real pain. Real hardship. Real problems. Its also practical: the wisdom is deep, but its written to a friend in trouble in a way that leads to clear solutions. And Resilience works, ultimately, because its hopeful. We all face pain and hardship, difficulty and doubt. Everyone suffers. But with Resilience, its also possible for all of us to grow: to live vital, flourishing lives.

Description
Two years ago, Eric Greitens unexpectedly heard from a former SEAL comrade, a brother-in-arms he hadn't seen in a decade. Drew Sheets had been one of the toughest of the tough. But ever since he returned home from war to his young family in a small logging town, he'd been struggling. Without a sense of purpose, plagued by PTSD, and masking his pain with heavy drinking, he needed help. Drew and Eric started writing and talking nearly every day, and Eric set down his thoughts on what it takes to build resilience in our lives. Eric's letters--drawing on both his own experience and wisdom from ancient and modern thinkers--are now gathered and edited into a timeless handbook. They explain how we can build purpose, confront the pain in our lives, practice compassion, develop our vocations, find a mentor, create happiness, follow a role model, think about the story of our lives, and much more. Resilience grapples with real hardship. The lessons are deep, yet practical, and the advice leads to clear solutions.
