Resilience 101


A lot has been written about resilience, particularly since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Unfortunately, much of what’s out there is either too fluffy, abstract, or narrow to help you get started in a meaningful way.

As a result, I created my own library of resources to help you become more resilient.

What you’ll find below:

An in-depth guide to becoming more resilient

A workbook of essential resilience practices

Inspiring interviews with real-life survivors

Additional resources to help you keep growing

In-depth guide

Want to go deep on resilience?

Does your mind crave structure and order?

This in-depth guide was written for left-brained thinkers – the MBAs, consultants, and other professionals who appreciate bringing order out of chaos.

Resilience in action

Want to hear from real people who found a way to thrive in the face of adversity?

Season 1 of the Reinvented podcast explores amazing stories of overcoming adversity.

Here are a few of my favorite stories:

Sense of purpose

“You don’t just love the person because you love them. You accept that they are non-permanent, just like you are. Just like everything is. That added this richness, and frankly beauty, to how I loved my kids and how I love people in my life.”


“Your friendship is forged through disease. Your friendship has come through this crazy time…
I feel no shame or fear in being completely honest with these people. And that’s super crazy liberating to have that.”

Faith and hope

“To be frank, the biggest source of
[resilience for me was] my faith. I’m a Christian and that faith background gives me a very strong foundation of hope.”

Additional resources

Want to go even deeper on adversity, resilience, and post-traumatic growth?

I’ve included an ever-growing library of resources below for you to look through.
