Be Extraordinary by author Jennifer Wild reveals a life-changing formula that will lead us on the path to being extraordinary even when we encounter setbacks along the way.
She has discovered that overcoming adversity and becoming extraordinary tap the same factor.  People who flourish with or without trauma as their catalyst naturally draw on seven key processes – the unwavering belief in recovering against all odds, the conviction to reach one’s goals, the courage to focus on the future rather than the past, and the invaluable, necessary conscious and continuous process of updating out-dated memories and self-concepts. These factors drive people to overcome adversity. They drive people to become extraordinary. This book is about what those factors are, how to get them and why they work.  This is a very readable and great book to have.
