By Felix Economakis

In Harden Up, psychologist Felix Economakis explains how previous generations were tougher, harder-working and coped better with obstacles, and compares their attitudes with our overly sensitive, hand-it-to-me-on-a-platter culture. He proposes that to get what we want, we need to take a dose of our grandparents medicine and harden up.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Today we face fewer physical and mental challenges than at any other time in history but we are more sensitive, entitled and complaining than ever. In a post-recession world, whining about our lot or waiting for someone to hand us the perfect life isn t going to wash. In Harden Up, psychologist Felix Economakis explains how previous generations were tougher, harder-working and coped better with obstacles, and compares their attitudes with our overly sensitive, hand-it-to-me-on-a-platter culture. He proposes that to get what we want, we need to take a dose of our grandparents medicine and harden up.

Beginning with how to accept the sacrifices that are necessary to achieve our goals, and then changing our attitudes accordingly, Harden Up offers new ways to think about the challenges we come up against in life. It gives straightforward, honest advice for developing resilience, and concludes with practical explanations for applying these principles in the realms of parenting, relationships, the workplace and more.

If you want to be happier, more successful and grow a thicker skin in a world full of wimps, then this is the book for you.
