I read a great book over break entitled The Resilience Breakthrough (27 tools for turning adversity into action) by Christian Moore, LCSW. He tells of his own experiences of poverty, learning disabilities, etc. and how he used these adversities as fuel for his resilience to graduate high school and college, obtain his Master’s degree in Social Work, start a successful business, and write a book!
“Moore delivers a practical primer on how you can become more resilient in a world of instability and narrowing opportunity, whether you’re facing financial troubles, health set backs, challenges on the job, or any other problem. We can each learn how to use adverse circumstances as potent fuel for overcoming life’s hardships.”
