Copies of my new book ‘100 Days to Mental Resilience’ have finally arrived and are now on sale on Amazon and on my website. I’ve got to be honest they look and feel good. This book is different to my last one as there are 100 short inspirational stories with some questions to think about for each one.
Over the period of reading the book the reader will cover all the key principles to develop Mental Resilience in a remarkably simple and easy way. The book is designed to be read one section per day over 100 days but can be read at whatever speed the reader prefers.
Simple inspirational read
Reading one story per day first thing in the morning will set the reader up for the day with something inspirational to ponder on. As they go through the day, they will slowly but surely embed that Mental Resilience principle into their subconscious mind.
When the book has been completed all the principles combined will give the reader a new level of Mental Resilience to cope better with stress and to be more resilient. The book is full of outstanding principles to live by resulting in a more content, happy and fulfilled life.
I came across this article recently about Mental Resilience which dovetails beautifully with the principles in my book.
“If you conclude that your best days are over – they are. If you think they’re ahead – they are.
After losing his job with a Fortune 500 company, Leonard was fearful and depressed. Then it occurred to him that if he gave up, what would he be teaching his son?
If he didn’t overcome his challenges, his son would learn to let his challenges beat him. Leonard was determined to show him that although his dad got knocked down, he could get back up.
So, he dug out his CV and called his friends to tell them he needed a job. Several months and many interviews later, he had four job offers, and now works for a company that values his talent.
The Big potatoes
When harvesting potatoes, Idaho farmers would sort them according to size: small, medium, and large. Yet a particular farmer who didn’t follow this practice made more money than the rest.
Puzzled, a neighbour asked, ‘What’s your secret?’ ‘Simple,’ he replied. ‘I load my wagon and take the roughest road to town. During the trip the small potatoes fall to the bottom, the medium ones settle in the middle, and the big potatoes rise to the top.’
The bumpy road of life
The same is true of people. On the bumpy road of life, big potatoes rise to the top. Jon Gordon says: ‘Regardless of the adversity you face, your purpose must be greater than your challenges.
Instead of focusing on your problems, focus on your purpose. Instead of seeing yourself as a victim, see yourself as a hero.
Heroes and victims both get knocked down, but heroes get back up, and armed with faith, they create a positive future.’
Find your purpose
What a great example of Mental Resilience. One thing I haven’t focused on in any of my blogs up to date is purpose. Yet it is one of the most important things for a fulfilled life. Do you have a purpose if so, what is it?
If you don’t have a purpose in your life, then your life is not as rich and fulfilled as it could be. My purpose is to help as many people as possible improve their mental resilience especially in this time of Covid 19. Mental Wellbeing is such a serious issue right now and it gives me great pleasure to see the difference I can make to people’s lives through my online Masterclasses and my books.
It is all about your response
‘It’s not what happens to you in life….it’s how you respond which makes all the difference.’
This is one of my key principles and how you respond really does determine your future. You can choose how you respond to most things in life and once you know this you can change the way you respond to the tough things that happen to you.

Thoughts for the week:
- Do you have a purpose in life you are focussed on?
- If you do then I ask you to focus on this for the coming week and establish how you are doing and whether you need to change anything.
- If you don’t then I strongly urge to find your purpose. I believe that we all have something we can believe in and help with. It could be a charity or bringing up a family.
- Your purpose gets you up in the morning, it helps you stay motivated during the day and it helps you sleep at night.
Well that’s it for today and if you do purchase a book, I really hope you enjoy it as much I did writing it. Have a wonderful weekend and keep Believing.
