How do you get the life you want when things aren’t going your way?
When things go sideways, most people make one of two mistakes: they either give up on their dreams or they NEVER give up on their dreams, even when those dreams aren’t serving them. You can change your plans and still reach your goals. Scratch that. You HAVE to change your plans to reach your goals.
That’s the real work of resilience. Resilience isn’t superhuman internal strength. It’s not toxic positivity. It’s not sucking it up to stick it out. True resilience is letting go of the “old way of doing things” and rewriting a script for success that gives you the fastest and best path from where you are to where you’re going.
Backed by data-driven research, ReVisionary Thinking offers concrete strategies for blazing a new path to achieve your goal when the goalposts move on you. You will learn to acquire resilience through adaptive thinking, a three-part process involving flexibility, creativity, and openness to possibility. Specific principles covered include:
  • How to mourn your path without sacrificing your goal
  • Why your gut instinct fails you in unfamiliar situations—and how to counter it
  • How to create space for more and better choices
  • The benefits of using storytelling to solve problems
  • And much more!
Success is not determined by how good you plan is (or was), but rather by how willing you are to design a new one when you need to. You may not have chosen where you are, but you get a choice in what comes next. The success of your vision lies in the ReVision.

About the Author

Courtney Clark is the luckiest unlucky person in the world. After a series of major struggles beginning in her mid-20s, she has built two successful businesses and is the author of two books, including her most recent book The Successful Struggle: Powerful Techniques to Achieve Accelerated Resilience. She works with people who want to adapt faster and achieve more, and has spoken worldwide to organizations like Procter & Gamble, Dell, S&P, Humana, Cisco, and Cardinal Health.
Courtney’s resilience work has been called “practical,” “powerful,” and “empowering” by industry leaders, and she’s been featured in Forbes, Psychology Today, USA Today, and The Chicago Tribune. If she wasn’t writing and speaking about resilience, Courtney would have wanted to be a tap dancer. Thankfully for her audiences, she wasn't very good at it.
