What happened to famines? Great Depressions? Plagues? For most of us, these are distant memories. We're living in an era with 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; why you need to have more one-night stands; 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.
