Tougher Than You Think

'Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.' 
~ William Shakespeare

When faced with a difficult situation how well do you cope or adapt?

Do you meet the challenge head on or do you beat a hasty retreat?

Maybe you take some time to regroup and then return and try again?

It’s only when we’re faced with obstacles, stress, and other environmental threats that we discover our level of resilience, or a lack thereof, but despite what you might think, resilience isn’t simply something you’re born with (or not), it’s also a learned behaviour.


In the simplest sense, resilience is defined as the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties. In Tougher Than You Think, former military combat engineer and peacekeeper Chris Rhyss Edwards presents a range of protective factors that can empower you to build and continue to develop your resilience skills and build out your resilience toolkit.

In these challenging times, we all need a resilience toolkit, tools and resources we can rely on to get us through the difficult moments. In this ground breaking guidebook for life, you’ll learn to develop such skills as;


Learn how to develop your belief in your ability to succeed in challenging situations.


Learn the power of leveraging social relationships to protect you against stress reactions.


Discover how what you eat, how often you move, and how much you sleep really matters.


Become a resilient person comfortable with controlling and expressing your feelings. 


Learn how to reconceptualize traumatic events as an opportunity to learn and grow.

Life will always bring us various misfortunes and change, but after reading this book you will discover the skills and tools to come through anything life throws your way because whether you believe it or not, you’re Tougher Than You Think.
