About this Episode

Resilience: The ability to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions. Well, if these aren't difficult times I don't know what is. Ok! However, humans are born with a resilient spirit. Despite that fact, there is a limit to everything. If you or someone you know has been pushed to your limit, more often than not, this is episode is for you.


According to Psychology Today, many factors that determine resilience—such as genetics, early life experiences, and luck—can’t be modified. But specific resilience-building skills can be learned. These include breaking out of negative thought cycles, pushing back against catastrophizing, and looking for upsides when faced with setbacks.

That is why our guest Buck Davis, is the perfect person to share insights into building resilience. Buck has multiple master's degrees, has been in the speaking and consulting business for 21 years. He's worked with everyone from Starbucks, Facebook, General Mills, Ball Aerospace & The US EPA. He's also worked across all types of industries from manufacturing to retail to tech companies. You may have seen him on CNN talking about race in America or get this, this is so random, he's also pitched products on QVC. As if a dozen or so jobs aren't enough, he also creates inspirational videos.

He credits so much of his life to a resilient spirit and positive thinking and not only does he live his life in the practice of it, he shares it with all who wish to hear it. Settle down, tune in, and be empowered.
