About the Author

Lucas Graham is a senior writer at Hack Spirit based in Auckland, New Zealand. He started his journey into personal development as a means to navigate his own complex life.

Coming from a broken family, Lucas learned early on that life can really be unfair and unpredictable. And throughout his life, he has faced numerous challenges that tested his mental and emotional limits – from navigating personal loss to battling severe anxiety.

These experiences taught him an important lesson: resilience isn’t something you’re born with, it’s something you build.

Lucas turned his hardest experiences into a deep dive into the world of mental toughness. Over the years, writing for Hack Spirit, he has had the opportunity to research and write about various strategies to enhance personal growth and mental health.

This book is the culmination of that work. As a firm believer in the importance of making self-help accessible to everyone, he designed it to be a practical handbook that offers easy-to-implement strategies and inspirational insights. 

Because he knows just how tough life can get, Lucas hopes to show you that no matter what you’re going through, you have the power to bounce back stronger.
