Publisher's Summary

Ten principles for leading your family to true resilience, from the best-selling author of Spartan Up and the CEO/founder of Spartan.

Joe De Sena has spent his life running toward challenge and discomfort. Why? Because how we react to challenging situations defines us and our families. The only tools we have as humans to survive the many peaks and valleys of a full life are preparedness, health, leadership, and most importantly, resilience. Why do so many parents struggle to finish things we start, delay gratification, and protect our health - and why do our kids continue to struggle in every facet of life? Because we haven’t showed them a path to resilience, and we haven’t fought for it ourselves.  

In 10 Rules for Resilience, Joe De Sena outlines his 10 principles for leading your family to true resilience, a term he uses for a body and mind that have been carved out of hard work, challenge, and failure. It takes true resilience to approach overwhelming situations with calm and confidence, to not get rattled, anxious, or angry, and even to embrace failure, setbacks, and redirections.

Kick Ass Message

Joe hit so many key points in family dynamics that everyone could benefit from hearing the views mentioned. Not just adults but teenagers as well. At the beginning of the book, some things he said about kids now-a-days made me chuckle(laugh) which is hard to do when reading a book for me. Ya, Joe, you got me! Ha ha.
I’m a self-driven individual who loves a challenge and will take on almost anything, but Joe suggested some areas on the home front where I was lacking but my wife was not. That hit me hard because I thought I was thinking the correct path. 🤷‍♂️ Joe made me think more about each decision I have to better push myself in ways I didn’t think I needed to work on.

Hope this motivates someone else to give this book a listen or read to see what they might find out about themselves.

Thanks Joe.

Great book with a lot of good ideas.

Great book with a lot of good ideas about what can be done to raise more resilient children. Also shows you how to become more resilient because of you can't live it you probably are going to do a horrible job of teaching it.

Fantastic and practical. Family strong!

I am an avid supporter of Joe, so I tend to enjoy his message.
This book was no different.
A useful and easy read with gems in every chapter.
The colorful stories illuminate the ideas he presents.
I am grateful to the fact that this man and his family exist to draw inspiration from. To watch them lead by example. To be the examples of what they want to see in the world.
You can see Dr Laura’s soft and elegant touch on the book in a delightful way.
Impressive. Yet again Joe. Bravo. Cheers to you both!

A must listen by all People wanting to grow ♥️

Thank you Joe and Dr Lara, this book is my second to be listened to by Joe. Anyone that is looking to put in the effort for consistent incremental improvements, allow this book to be a guide. Also, it’s a modern day parenting book- helping you to see that by softening the hard stuff you are hindering your children’s true potential. #FFIO is my newest favorite hashtag. I have run a Spartan and will complete in my first #WTM in November in Laughlin. Go do hard things!!! “Anything truly worth doing will be hard!”

If you’re a Father get this now

Look, we live in a world that can be pretty soft.
I can admit that wanting my kids to have a better life than what I had can make me take it easier on them. This book has already shown me why that’s a bad idea and that i need to encourage challenges in my kids life. Loving it just got me out of head at 12 am for a midnight workout to get myself used to uncomfortable. 💪🏾💪🏾

Essential reading if you want resilient kids!!!

I preordered this book because I loved the messaging in Joe's earlier books and boy am I glad that I did. I rated myself as a pretty good Dad. I thought I loved my daughter as much as a Dad could, but I what I'm actually doing is setting her up for some really tough times later in her life. Personally, I align 100% with Joe's views on personal development, strength, grit, integrity and resilience building but I was falling short big time when it came to my daughter. It's not about tough love, it's about real love. Life is hard and who better to teach our kids the hard lessons of life than the ones that are suppose to love them the most. This is an amazing reference book for anyone that wants to build resilience for themselves and for their kids. This is going to be my "go to" gift for my loved ones this Christmas. Thank you Joe, once again!!! You're a true Spartan and one with a big heart.
