Resilience is an inborn trait. It is part of your innate survival capacity.


This means you can rebound after a setback and even bounce forward with more strength and wisdom. You can proactively and consciously choose to develop your ability to manage stress, recover from burnout and thrive despite extreme challenges by developing a stress-resistant personality. This book will show you how.


In The Top 10 Traits of Highly Resilient People (2nd edition) Dr. Andrea Pennington, now known as Dr. DaeEss 1Drea Pennington Wasio, presents 24 real life stories of people from various backgrounds and cultures who have dug deep within themselves to heal and move forward after facing difficult circumstances. These were sometimes life threatening, and often led to rock bottom or burnout. What these stories all have in common is how they prove that the traits of resilience can be built and expanded with intention so that we can thrive after trauma, and experience more growth than we thought possible. There is great hope and inspiration to be found here.


This book has 10 sections with stories covering each of the top 10 traits of resilience, giving the reader examples from each of the traits that Dr. 1Drea has taught her students and clients alike over the years. This expanded 2nd edition includes self-reflection exercises and journal prompts to serve as a practical workbook for building resilience.


The authors in this book come from all walks of life with a range of life experiences; from far away military deployments and the dizzy heights of Dubai's business world, to understaffed hospital wards, a veterinary clinic, and in places all over the world.
