Resilience

How to Keep Going When the Going Gets Tough

 

Resilience - The ability to withstand, recover, and bounce back from the stress, chaos, and ever-changing situations. 

 

"The moment we believe that success is determined by an ingrained level of ability as opposed to resilience and hard work, we will be brittle in the face of adversity." Joshua Waitzkin

One-Day Workshop

 

Grit, or resiliency, is a competency of emotional intelligence based upon one's passion for a long-term goal that's coupled with a powerful motivation to achieve that objective, despite setbacks, barriers or limited resources. It's that ability to bounce back well when things don't go the way we hope.  It’s the courage and resolve to tackle what we set out to accomplish.  And the truth is, some people have it -- and some people don't.
