Summary

In this Audible Original audiobook, Emma J. Bell tackles the ultimate question: why go through life merely surviving, when you could be thriving?

Drawing on the insights of 50 inspiring people who have suffered a wide range of trauma but are thriving nonetheless, Emma J. Bell has extracted nine enlightening secrets from their experiences. You’ll listen as they talk about how they found renewed purpose in life; how they learned to forgive rather than hold on to resentment; and how they developed practices to create calm and live authentically. Whether you want to apply their life changing lessons to your relationships, your work or the way you deal with setbacks or challenging past experiences, each story offers something different and inspiring for you to draw on.

These nine secrets, and the easy to apply practices that accompany them, will help you live your life to the fullest. If you no longer want to settle for just going through the motions and living on autopilot, and if you are determined to thrive instead, this is the audiobook for you!

Inspiring!

You’ll be “better than before” after listening to this - I love the essence of thrive rather than survive. The stories are extraordinary but Emma brings the same resilience strategies back into the everyday. Inspiring yes, but also really practical!

Brilliant read

I loved this book, it was so inspiring to hear so many personal accounts of overcoming the odds and thriving. I couldn’t stop listening. Emma pulls out really valuable insights from all the thrivers stories. Definitely definitely worth a listen.

An inspiring way to personally grow

Emma has a calming and positive way of sharing with you the harrowing story of the 50 individuals and the resources they choose to use to enable them to thrive not just survive or go under from their ordeals. Hopefully some new insights will be revealed to; other insights will reinforce those you know; and other insights will be a reminder, a reawakening of things you knew however have for sometime forgotten. It’s definitely a book I will enjoy listening to again in a year or 2 time.

Everyone should listen to this!

Touching, thought provoking, inspiring and downright gripping. I'm also intrigued to read more about some of the Thrivers! Wow, what a way to gain or maintain perspective and work on my own mindset and resilience. I know others who really need to listen too - attitude and life changing!

Inspiring and full of invaluably helpful lessons

Emma has taken some of the most jaw-dropping tales of adversity and from each draws out some powerful lessons in survival and mental robustness. The audiobook is superbly narrated and that really brings the stories to life, the fact that it also contains the thrivers recounting their own tips and lessons in their own voice just makes it all the more powerful. Couldn’t stop listening to it and have bookmarked lessons that were particularly relevant to me and will revisit them in times of stress or difficulty.

Inspiring

The people in this book have experienced such adversity and your heart goes out to them. What I believe though makes their stories much more compelling and inspiring is the power of their minds and how they have chosen to think about what has happened. Each has, in their own way, taken something positive from it to move forward and not only just cope and survive, but actually live their lives with purpose. If they can do this in such difficult circumstances then we can all learn how to chose how we view things and overcome our own challenges.

A manual for life

I absolutely LOVED this book. Emma's ability to empathise with the trauma of the 50 Thrivers, yet masterfully pull out the learning and hidden gifts compassionately and insightfully, really does provide every human being with a map to navigate the unpredictable rollercoaster life can be. Practical tips, examples from her personal experience and 'things to remember' summaries make for an accessible, informative listen. I would love a paper version of this to send family and friends for Christmas. A guide to thriving for today, 2021 and beyond!

A look at the bigger picture

I have gained so much from listening g to this incredible production - It’s so easy to get caught up in our heads about what we can’t do and what we should do - it’s so easy to forget what we can focus on - these stories give us real insight to people choosing to thrive after incredible hard situations -people choosing to love life ! Love themselves and love others - some might say they have discovered that yes hell is on earth but so is heaven and we get to choose where we live most - they choose heaven ! I was so humbled by the stories and love how Emma Bell is weaving all of these secrets into her life daily!
