The Practice of Groundedness

The Practice of Groundedness

Brad Stulberg

Overview

Our modern culture is plagued by restlessness, low-level angst, burnout, and a compulsion to keep chasing the next thing.

Brad Stulberg, author and motivational speaker on human performance and sustainable success, believes that humans need to start paying more attention to their deep and grounded roots rather than unobtainable high-hanging fruit.

Heroic individualism is an ongoing attempt to seek happiness through measurable achievement, but we are always falling short. An over-obsession with ambition will inevitably exceed any results or accolades we actually reach, leading to perpetual dissatisfaction, anxiety, and depression.

In The Practice of Groundedness: A Transformative Path to Success That Feeds – Not Crushes – Your Soul, Stulberg lays out his principles for a more grounded life through acceptance, patience, and vulnerability.
