Podcast #171 – Marc Interviews Steven J. Stein and Paul T. Bartone, Authors of Hardiness: Making Stress Work for You to Achieve Your Life Goals
I was approached several months ago about interviewing Steven and Paul regarding their book Hardiness: Making Stress Work for You to Achieve Your Life Goals. I was fascinated by the book and shared the following review from one of my Career Pivot Community members – Hardiness: Making Stress Work for You to Achieve Your Life Goals [Book Review].
I think you will find this topic is especially relevant during the current CoronaVirus pandemic.

What is hardiness?
It is a mindset or a way of looking at the world that is more resilient in dealing with stress.
It is composed of challenge, control, and commitment.
It is all about being open to change. It is a quality that occurs at any age. It is the ability to adapt and change as things unfold.
It is about knowing what you can and cannot control.
It is about being engaged in life and having purpose and goals. You want to wake up and have something to look forward to.
Every day you should have at least one goal.
Can We Become Hardier?
Hardiness can increase when you overcome challenges.
