“Faith-based advice underscored by a powerful story of suffering and perseverance. A book for our times, indeed, for all time, ourselves and our families.” – Admiral Bill Owens, US Navy (Ret), Former Vice-Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff
No one escapes adversity in this life.At times we all struggle with personal pain that can seem unfair and overwhelming. How do we move forward without turning to self-destructive ways of coping or simply giving up? Christopher Greco’s dynamic and faith-inspired book, 8 Steps to Overcoming Everyday Adversity, offers a concise roadmap on how to overcome whatever hardship we face, whether it’s dealing with failure, illness, loss, and grief, difficult life choices, anxiety about the future, or other challenges. Drawing heavily from his own personal experience, Greco describes how he overcame the event that changed his life and affected him and his family for many years.
Rather than become a statistic, Greco sought to improve himself by leaning on his faith, learning in the process that dealing head-on with adversity, hardship, and suffering are necessary parts of the human experience and essential for personal growth. Greco believes we are put on this earth with a mission and lessons to be learned. How we handle adversity can help others find the strength to cope with their challenges as well. The path to a fulfilling, balanced life is possible no matter the circumstances and this book will show you the way
WOW! This book is a must-read! Greco's take on life through his own personal hardships is honest and forthcoming. It speaks a language that we all understand because we've all faced our own difficulties. The great take away is how we can power through and use the pain as a tool to becoming our better self. His section on prayer allows for the interpretation to use any spiritual means to help guide us through the tough times. Bravo, Mr. Greco. Thank you for your candor and encouragement. I plan on keeping this book close by for a reminder to stay inspired and keep fighting the good fight.
Christopher's story of overcoming real adversity is genuinely moving, compellingly told, and expertly sets up the strategy he proposes. The strategy itself is all about hope and discipline, which complement each other beautifully, especially when animated by Christopher's deep faith. I highly recommend this book to readers of any age. We all stand to learn from it.
Christopher Greco has written a poignant, yet inherently useful autobiography and reader workbook for overcoming adversity and choosing your response to turn the worst of times into your greatest strengths, grit, and permanent fortitude.
