LEVERAGE: The Science of Turning Setbacks into Springboards

By Claire Dorotik-Nana M.A.

Personal growth | Paperback, eBook


When was the last time you asked why you CAN have what you want? Many of us only see the obstacles in our way. But what if those very same obstacles could actually be used to get us closer to our goals? This is the very question that LEVERAGE explores, and drawing on the latest research in positive psychology, post-traumatic growth, behavioral economics, and evolutionary psychology, LEVERAGE will show you that obstacles may be exactly what you need to get what you want. By opening yourself to the possibility of both positive and negative outcomes, you leave room for unexpected, transformative opportunities. When you engage in the journey instead of blindly racing towards victory, you learn how to find joy and appreciation for life regardless of your circumstances, form deep and meaningful relationships, discover your strengths, and deepen your faith.
