"Resilience is not accidental. While some people have natural resilience, it is something that can also be learned and practiced, deliberately and carefully, by anyone⁠—including you." -- Lachlan Brown, founder of Hack Spirit
About this eBook
Every day we’re challenged by people, situations, and conditions which, given the chance, will drag you down and keep you there. These include:

•    Difficult family relationships
•    Disappointing romantic relationships (often damaging our sense of self-worth)
•    Being surrounded by toxic people (whether it’s at work, in your social life, or just at a coffee shop, these people can infect your mind and ruin your day)
•    Health issues – feeling like our body or mind is betraying us can have devastating impact on well-being
•    Financial and existential crises
•    Grief over loved ones

But you’re not alone.

Everyone – including the most successful people on earth - are forced to deal with extreme challenges.

But it’s not who faces what challenge which differentiates us, it’s how we deal with those challenges, which determines our success and happiness.

And resilience is the key to doing this.

Without resilience, you'll be trapped in an endless cycle of trying to put out fires at every turn. This creates a barely-getting-through-the-day mentality which stifles personal development, future planning and healthy optimism.


… with mentally tough people, it’s more than being able to cope with problems as they arise. Mental toughness is a weapon they carry with them at all times and empowers them to be better equipped for life than most others.

Make no mistake, mentally tough people are the highest-achieving people in our society.

And to put it at a more personal level, the mentally tough and resilient live happier, more satisfying lives.

In The Art of Resilience: A Practical Guide to Mental Toughness, you’ll be shown exactly how to build your own inner-armory of resilience, hardening your mind so you become mentally stronger. Our guide will equip you with the vital knowledge and tools you need to stare down any challenge and fearlessly pursue a successful and better life.

What you'll learn

  • What Mental Toughness REALLY is: Discover what it truly means to be mentally tough. And most importantly, how with just a little work, you can develop an inner shield of resilience which you can continue to build and strengthen as part of your strategy for life.
  • ​Your Current Level of Resilience: You don’t need to see a psychologist or take a bunch of complex tests to assess your own resilience. With my 5 cut-to-the-chase, research-supported questions, you’ll quickly determine how resilient you currently are (or aren’t), and which areas of mental toughness you should focus on.
  • History’s Toughest People (And Their Secrets): We share keen insights into 22 astonishingly resilient real-life people. (Did you know that mega-successful author JK Rowling was, at one stage, penniless, depressed and surviving on government handouts? We’ll share with you the ironclad mentality she adopted to rise above rock-bottom and become one of world’s wealthiest authors).

  • Personal Responsibility -  The Other Superpower: Like resilience, the ability to take personal responsibility is also a true superpower – one which many don’t have. By learning to take ultimate responsibility for your life (including your most acute challenges), you’ll discover why personal responsibility is the key ingredient to developing mental toughness.
  • How to Take Complete Responsibility For Your Life: Our guide shows you the 9 crucial things you need to do to take complete responsibility, and how doing so sharpens your resilience. Learn how taking responsibility empowers you to live a life of happiness, strength, and the ability to meet (or exceed) your goals.

About the author, Lachlan Brown

I'm Lachlan, the founder of Hack Spirit.

I created this site because I was so passionate about how useful mindfulness can be in people’s lives, yet most of the information out there failed to provide it in a practical and simple way.

It frustrated me that such valuable knowledge was often delivered in confusing ways.

So I set out to change this. I believe that mindfulness can be very practical and accessible.

I have a graduate degree in Psychology and I’ve spent the last 10 years reading and studying all I can about human psychology and practical ways to hack our mindsets.

Hack Spirit is a blog where I shared what I’ve read and learned.

It's now one of the largest media sites on mindfulness and practical psychology for everyday living with over three million monthly readers.
