How To Bounce When Others Break : The Top 10 Rules of Resilient People

Dr. Steve W. Price

“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade,” said Dale Carnegie back in the 1930s, when the world was mired in the Great Depression.

Easier said than done.

The Great Depression broke a lot of people. Unemployment hit 25%. Fortunes were lost. Homes and businesses were foreclosed on. Dreams were dashed.

But the most resilient people survived.

Many even thrived.

Today, we’re in the toughest times since the Great Depression. And it’s likely to last for a decade, perhaps longer. The tough times ahead will test many of us. These days, resilience isn’t a nicety…it’s a necessity.

Resilience – the ability to bounce back from setbacks and adversity – has enabled ordinary people throughout history to turn tragedy into triumph.

The “Top 10 Rules of Resilient People” discussed in this book have helped countless people turn adversity into advantage. Whether your challenges are financial, emotional, or medical (or all three), read this book – and learn how you, too, can bounce…when others break.

    Just want to check in and say, that I’ve just finished reading this book and cannot recommend the read highly enough.
    The information and stories contained within it are just amazing and are so true!
    Well done Dr. Price, thanks for your contribution through this book.

    the title of this book bothers me. an us-vs-them approach is the foundation of this title. we don’t need to be comparing ourselves to others in this instance. alternative and more relevant titles would instead be:
    “how to bounce instead of breaking”
    “make conditions safe before overbalancing and falling and breaking”
    “work at a safe height so you can land safely”
    because the current implication of the very telling title is:
    “bounce while watching others fail”.

    when some one bounces, we all bounce. when someone breaks, we all break. preventing falling in the first place is for the greater good. helping others to bounce while we are bouncing is for the greater good, because we all bounce sometimes and break sometimes; we would sure hope for help from someone who is bouncing when we are breaking, instead of them bouncing on ahead after they’ve read the top ten rules of this book
