Happiness, in one form or another, is a universal goal in life. Stress, of one kind or another, is a universal challenge. And it's easy and common to assume that the stresses of life themselves, from minor everyday annoyances to major crises, are what prevent us from attaining the happiness we seek. The truth is much more interesting - and empowering. In fact, it is our reaction to the challenges we encounter that actually determines our level of success and happiness, or lack thereof, in life. Simply put, experience is not what happens to you; it's what you do with what happens to you. A fascinating, fast-emerging new field of scientific research has focused its lens on something remarkable: a uniquely effective response to stress and the extraordinary group of individuals who demonstrate it. These people do not merely survive stressful experience or recover from them. They actually thrive as a result. They emerge not as their regular old selves, but better. More than simply resilient in the face of challenges, they flourish because of them, invincible to the aspects of stress that keep so many people limited to a life that's less than what it was before ... what it could be ... what they always wanted it to be.
