“Dale Carnegie was last century. Stephen Covey was last decade. Neil Pasricha is what's now.” (Susan Cain)
We all fail. We all fall. We all need to know how to get back up. Few know this better than New York Times best-selling author Neil Pasricha. For the first time, he tells his story and shows you how.
Before selling over a million copies of his Book of Awesome series and touring the world to teach Fortune 500 CEOs, Ivy league deans, and members of the royal family how to unlock a positive mind-set, Pasricha's life hit rock bottom.
He flamed out of his dream job and then racked up $300,000 of debt as a failed entrepreneur. He lost his best friend to suicide and his wife to divorce - in the same week. And then there were his own demons - the hang-ups, anxieties, and bouts of self-doubts that plagued him from adolescence.
And yet, inch by inch, Neil learned how to get back up. And you can, too.
How to Get Back Up combines Neil's very personal story of failure and resilience, told for the first time, with the latest scientific research on happiness, along with a strong dose of the self-development strategies Neil's honed over the past decade to get more done and live a fuller life. The result is a hilarious, genre-bending original that will change your life. It's filled with actionable lessons on resilience and perseverance, such as:
- The 3 B's of getting yourself out of burnout.
- The single word that opens up any opportunity.
- The most important question you need to ask when sizing up a new opportunity.
- A simple step-by-step framework for letting go of shame.
- How just two minutes can make every day intentional.
Told with heart and rippling with emotion, How to Get Back Up is at times funny, heartbreaking, counterintuitive, and inspiring. It's the story of a life lived better - a story we all can have.
