I’ve found that even with challenges and dark days, we can live contented and accomplished lives. My books reflect that philosophy. They provide guidance, tips, and stories of those who use the practices of emotional fitness. In New Rules of the Game, I focus on grit, resilience and team trust. In Fully Human, I detail the three steps anyone can do as an ongoing practice of emotional fitness: self-discovery, trust-building, and We Principles. When you apply these steps life can be, on many days, simple gratitude.
My latest book, The Little Book of College Sobriety, illustrates these three steps, too, as they apply to getting and growing your sobriety from substance misuse: self-discovery, belonging, and finally, living well as sober, hope-rich citizens of the world.
