Eric Greitens is a Rhodes Scholar that started out his career as a humanitarian aid worker but then became a Navy SEAL. His book The Heart and the Fist makes that case that in order to be a good man, you have to be strong enough to fight for those you’re trying to serve. His book Resilience: Hard Won Wisdom For Living a Better Life is based around a series of letters between him and a SEAL buddy that was going through a rough time in his life with alcoholism, job loss, and PTSD. Greitens calls upon his background in philosophy to provide insights and advice for his struggling friend on how to develop resilience in the face of adversity. In this podcast, Eric and I talk about what exactly resilience is, why it’s so important that we work for it, and how one develops it.
Why resilience is more than just “bouncing back”
Why modern culture makes us less resilient
Why resilience is something you must constantly work for
How a “morality of intentions” makes individuals and a culture less robust
Why focusing on being happy can actually make you miserable
How you can be resilient in one area of life, but unresilient in another
The role friends and mentors play in becoming resilient
And much more!
Resilience is something I’ve spent a great deal of time researching and writing on because it’s a trait that I struggle with and have to constantly work on myself. Greitens’ book is by far the best I’ve ever read on the subject. Every page has some nugget of wisdom on how you can become more resilient to big adversities or just life’s mundane struggles. Along the way you’re treated to personal war stories from Greitens’ SEAL days as well as excerpts from Thucydides, Aristotle, and Aquinas. Resilience is now one of my all-time favorite books, and will almost assuredly be the best book I read in 2015. Simply a must-read.
