The Undefeated Mind: On the Science of Constructing an Indestructible Self~ Alex Lickerman

Legions of self-help authors rightly urge personal development as the key to happiness, but they typically fail to focus on its most important objective: hardiness. Though that which doesn’t kill us can make us stronger, as Nietzsche tells us, few authors today offer any insight into just how to springboard from adversity to strength.

It doesn’t just happen automatically, and it takes practice. New scientific research suggests that resilience isn’t something with which only a fortunate few of us have been born, but rather something we can all take specific action to develop. To build strength out of adversity, we need a catalyst. What we need, according to Dr. Alex Lickerman, is wisdom—wisdom that adversity has the potential to teach us.

Lickerman’s underlying premise is that our ability to control what happens to us in life may be limited, but we have the ability to establish a life-state to surmount the suffering life brings us. The Undefeated Mind distills the wisdom we need to create true resilience into nine core principles, including:

A new definition of victory and its relevance to happiness
The concept of the changing of poison into medicine
A way to view prayer as a vow we make to ourselves.
A method of setting expectations that enhances our ability to endure disappointment and minimizes the likelihood of quitting
An approach to taking personal responsibility and moral action that enhances resilience
A process to managing pain—both physical and emotional—that enables us to push through obstacles that might otherwise prevent us from attaining out goals
A method of leveraging our relationships with others that helps us manifest our strongest selves

Through stories of patients who have used these principles to overcome suffering caused by unemployment, unwanted weight gain, addiction, rejection, chronic pain, retirement, illness, loss, and even death, Dr. Lickerman shows how we too can make these principles function within our own lives, enabling us to develop for ourselves the resilience we need to achieve indestructible happiness. At its core, The Undefeated Mind urges us to stop hoping for easy lives and focus instead on cultivating the inner strength we need to enjoy the difficult lives we all have.

Alex Lickerman is a physician, former Assistant Professor of Medicine and Director of Primary Care, and current Assistant Vice President for Student Health and Counseling Services at the University of Chicago. He’s also been a practicing Buddhist since 1989.

Eastern philosophy has met Western science in a uniquely harmonious blend within Alex’s mind and heart, in which an expert knowledge of the most up-to-date scientific studies resides peacefully (for the most part) next to the accumulated wisdom of 2,500 years of Buddhist thinking.

Alex has had extensive experience treating the sickest of the sick in the most compassionate manner possible as well as teaching medical trainees to do the same at an internationally renowned academic medical center located in the heart of one of the poorest neighborhoods in
Chicago.

Alex has extensive speaking experience, having given talks at medical conferences throughout his career including a talk to an audience of over 3,000 at a Pri-Med Conference put on jointly by the University of Chicago and Northwestern University. He’s appeared on the television program On Call With Dr. Michael Breen and on Milt Rosenberg’s nationally syndicated radio show, Extension 720.

Alex has been quoted in Crain’s Chicago Business, Playboy, The Chicago Tribune, and TIME, and has had articles appear in Psychology Today and Medicine on the Midway. He’s also written a television pilot called Sessions that was optioned by DreamWorks Television, as well as several movie screenplays, including an adaptation of Milton’s Paradise Lost.
