Dr. Patricia O'Gorman's Releases New Book, THE RESILIENT WOMEN

Albany, NY, October 31, 2013 - Discover Dr. Patricia O'Gorman's book, The Resilient Women: Mastering the 7 Steps to Personal Power, and you're bound to be chanting, "I am woman! Hear me roar!" And, you should. Too many times, women sabotage themselves with girly thoughts, convincing themselves that their life's disappointments are a result of being too tall, too pretty, too fat, too skinny, too smart, not smart enough or not sexy enough. Simply put, our girly thoughts can be our greatest hurdle to making positive progress in our lives, both personally and professionally.

Girly thoughts not only stifle women from achieving their full potential, but they slash a women's sense of value or self-worth because they remind us that we don't fall in line with the latest version of what is culturally desirable and acceptable. Dr. O'Gorman shows us that a resilient life is achieved by how we react to situations in our lives, not by the things that happen to us.

The path to realizing resilience is outlined in a seven step process, designed to guide you to understand your own personal power. Dr. O'Gorman shows how-to recognize when girly thoughts are taking over and redirect them with positive thinking. She further teaches us to grow from our challenges and progress to a place of gratitude and acceptance.

"Reprogram your girly thoughts," explains Dr. O'Gorman. "Once you stop being a victim, embrace your strengths and adopt positive self-talk, you'll be on the path to your own resilience."

Dr. O'Gorman is an internationally renowned psychologist, coach and public speaker. She is recognized for her work with women, trauma, children of alcoholics, and substance abuse. Her warm, humorous persona has made her a favorite inspirational speaker in the speaking circuit. This is Dr. O'Gorman's second book on women and resilience.
