Resilience

RESILIENCE



“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”
― Nelson Mandela

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” - Helen Keller

Failure is a familiar trauma in life, but its lessons on people vary widely.
What is resilience and how to develop it? Here are the nuggets:

1.      Resilience is an individual's ability to properly adapt to stress and adversity.
2.      Resilience is the ability to become successful after something bad happens to us.
