Summary

Do you often feel overwhelmed with stress?

Does fear hold you back from your goals?

Do you ever feel like quitting when it gets tough?

At some point in our lives, we’ve all had to face what seems like an impossible challenge. But imagine being fully in control of your emotional state and having a transformational toolkit that will allow you to deal with any obstacle life throws at you....

In this life-changing book, James Elliott brings together all his years of experience as an accredited psychotherapist, resilience coach, and ex-paratrooper to help you develop your five pillars of mental resilience: confidence, emotional intelligence, physical health, goals, and relationships. James’ eye-opening pillars will show you how to:

  • Understand and manage your emotional response to any situation
  • Harness your fears and overcome insecurities to achieve your goals
  • Find strength in your vulnerabilities and reframe failure
  • Unlearn negative behavioral patterns and replace them with positive ones
  • Set boundaries and avoid toxic relationships

Packed with practical techniques, including James’ groundbreaking tried-and-tested MIND method, Think Yourself Resilient will show you how you can train your brain to tackle life’s daily challenges, overcome self-doubt, and turn surviving into thriving.

Excellent audio book

Interesting, thought provoking and captivating. James is very honest, allows his vulnerability to be shown but is inspirational in his determination to be a better human and professional. Very motivational!

An amazing audio book from an amazing person and brother. We have all come a long way and continue to fight our own battles. This book has helped me understand what resilient actually is, which has helped me better understand myself and situation. I will certainly be listening to this again for a second time soon.

Thank you for the amazing words Jimmy, see you soon big lad.

The manual

In a world filled with background noise, physical and emotional demands and a seemingly-constant lack of time, James asks if it’s any wonder why we are full of anxiety? His narrative encourages the reader to slow down and pause, taking breath (physically and metaphorically) to examine the separateness of our existence. Why must we merge with the dissonance of our surroundings? It is entirely in our power to draw strength and power from within.

In his book, James provides practical, uncomplicated exercises in personal and situational awareness that aim to fit into modern life. He draws on his own lived experience of adversity and triumph as well as his knowledge of neurodevelopment, socio-economic issues and human behaviour to eloquently explain the reasons behind our thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

Throughout the 5 chapters, James explains what it really means to be mentally resilient and how we all have the intrinsic power to harness this. He describes the power of emotional intelligence and emphasises its importance in developing and nurturing human connections. James seeks to break the toxic stereotypes about how humans should behave and instead encourages continuous evaluation and positive change.

This book is a must-read for anyone dealing with low self-esteem and serves as a guide to encourage the reader to examine their inner world, discarding any beliefs that no longer serve them and creating an inner core of safety and security.

TYR is a must listen to title by one of the most authentic former military leadership authors out there today.

Some self help books will convince you to read them because they claim to be able to change you. James Elliott cuts through the BS to not only crystallise the British Army resilience methodology (for which he was the catalyst) but has also manages to relate to insightful and often deeply moving examples about his own experiences, human flaws, upbringing, personal growth, and inspirational life now dedicated to helping others.

Only you can change you, but if you read / listen to this book it will give you a solid framework from which to reflect and build upon. JE - thank you for this superb title and here’s hoping for many more to come. SF
