This book is built on the foundations of the statement above. Life is not a bed of roses, and the earlier you realize this, the better for you. Many people crash and even take their lives because they expected life to go easy on them. Unfortunately, life is such an unpredictable “spouse” that promises you forever but can file a divorce the following week. It is no news that life is volatile like the stock market but unfortunately, many people are not prepared for it.
It’s this lack of preparation that makes people unable to cope with the fiery darts life throws at them. When you are not mentally prepared for the adversities of life, you will throw in the towel too soon. This lack of resilience is one of the reasons many people are depressed in the world today. It is also the reason many people have either taken or attempted to take their lives. According to the World Health Organization, around 800,000 people around the world kill themselves every year.
This development is sad, and that is why you need to become stronger, develop the muscles of your mind, and build up a tough skin according to the recommendations of Steve Maraboli. You don’t get stronger for life by hitting the gym. Rather, the preparation is mainly, if not purely, mental and psychological. This guide was put together to enable you to build mental strength that can sustain you during the days of adversity. It is going to be a beautiful journey that can be life-changing, depending on your attitude. Let’s begin.
