“Stepping Stones to Greater Resilience delivers. Most people who pick up a self help book understand the concept of an idea … what we really want is a guide to tell us what we have to do to improve our lives. Stepping Stones actually does this.”

“It's a great book - not just for people in dire need of recovery, but for people who just want to gain a greater sense of personal resilience and strength.”

“It speaks of things I've heard of before, but the way it is written, the way the information is provided and the exercises are enlightening and got my mind going before I was even done reading the first chapter.”

You don't need to be facing a major change or obstacles in your life to decide you want to become stronger and more confident.

Unexpected trials will always be a part of life … a lost set of keys, the stress of a botched work assignment, or the heartache of a full-blown health or relationship crisis. But what if you could identify and develop the skills that would empower you to minimize the effects of adversity and avoid getting sidetracked? What if you could even learn to use these experiences to your advantage, in the process creating a stronger more fulfilling life?

Think about this … how it is that two people can be faced with the same crisis and while one becomes hopelessly mired in a web of negativity and feelings of helplessness, the other is able to overcome adversity and bounce back stronger than ever?

Emotional Resilience is the Answer

When we make the choice to not be defined by adversity, to look at all experiences as stepping stones for growth and greater long-term resilience, we are able to approach life on a whole new level, and in the process realign ourselves with what is really important in our lives.

Stepping Stones to Emotional Resilience will help you identify the areas that need attention, and show you the way to cultivate greater emotional resilience in life than you ever thought possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book that informs and inspires 5 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Marquita Herald knows first-hand about 'emotional resilience.' To use an Elizabeth Taylor quote - 'she is mother courage.' In the matter of a few months - Marquita's 20-year marriage broke down, her father died and she was diagnosed with a rare degenerative eye disease, in which she was told would end in total blindness.

Unlike many who would crumble under these hard knocks, Marquita set out on putting up her best fight and that she did. Unwilling to accept possible blindness as her destiny, Marquita searched for alternative treatments, eventually finding a medic who cured her. With this life experience and courage she writes this book.

'Stepping Stones to Emotional Resilience' is a self-help resource, that one can return to again and again. It is about owning our emotional health and reprogramming how we think and react. It covers positive thinking, the mind-body connection and the law of attraction. It is peppered with quotes and stories from inspiring people -some famous, some not.

If you have some inner-work to do like myself - this is the book that can assist you on your journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars very helpful and valuable book... 23 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I began to read this book because I have long recognised the need to make some changes to my life. Most people would if they were honest and if it were as simple as taking a pill, this world would be a far happier place.
Unfortunately, I have found that it's not that simple or easy to do, so I needed a little guidance. Was this resilience something I was lacking?
Basically, I think I am quite resilient. I've had to be as my life has been far from kind. But resilient or not, I was never completely happy or content most of the time, just soldiered on as most of us do.
As I read 'Stepping Stones to Emotional Resilience' I discovered the question, 'How well do you really know yourself?' And 'Do you, or have you ever, had a glimmer of your life's purpose?'
The answer to both questions was no. Some of us have been searching for years and not found either one. Maybe we actually think we are not destined to be ecstatically happy.
I have never been one to take the path of least resistance for the sake of peace and quiet. Not all the time anyway, and I have often thought that this was the cause of much of the strife that seemed to follow me around for years.
It would seem that lack of confidence is what ails me, maybe I have the wrong kind of bravery.
"It is not the strongest of the species that survives, or the most intelligent. It is the one that is most adaptable to change." Charles Darwin.
I would have thought that I was one of the most adaptable beings on this planet, so what was my problem?
The more of Stepping Stones to Emotional Resilience that I read, it really did seem to be describing me, the 'before' picture if you like. Marquita Herald seemed to be talking to me personally, as if she knew me very well.

By OlgaNM
Format:Kindle Edition
As a psychiatrist I read plenty of professional publications on mental disorders. One of the many issues with much of the professional writing about the subject of health and mental well being is that it is written with a very specific public in mind: other professionals. Readability is not always the priority and some can be dry and not particularly engaging (although there are many good writers in the field). When recommending books or articles to patients and service-users it is important to keep in mind who the books are addressed to and how much common ground they cover.
On the other hand there are books that are very personal accounts and can be inspirational but not always easy to generalize to other cases. And some of the books containing advice make no reference to any theoretical approaches and lack no firm evidence to back-up their suggestions.
I was pleased when I read Marquita Herald’s book ‘Stepping Stones to Emotional Resilience’ (2nd Ed) to note that it does not fall into either of those categories. It is neither a dry professional book, nor a personal account lacking research and good evidence behind it. The author gives credit where credit is due, clearly stating where her ideas come from, and also acknowledging the lack of research in some areas (like the effects of Spirituality on resilience).
The concept of resilience fits in well with the “stress-vulnerability” model that many patients seem to find helpful in understanding their mental health difficulties.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for anybody 6 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I have always considered myself pretty emotionally resilient, but once I started reading this book I realized I still have more to learn. Marquita does a wonderful job at laying it all out how to really build a solid foundation for developing your emotional resilience. Written in an style that's easy to read and follow, I can't think of a single person that wouldn't benefit from working the exercises included in this book, regardless of how emotionally resilient you believe you are.

I seriously can't recommend this book highly enough, and plan on buying extra copies to give to each of my children.
