“There are no disasters, only opportunities. And, indeed, opportunities for fresh disasters.”
– Boris Johnson
Since childhood, we have heard stories about individuals overcoming the unthinkable circumstances—disasters no one believed they could and coming out stronger than before.
Resilience is at its core about getting through the pain, disappointment, and heartbreak in life without letting such instances crush your spirit. Research has uncovered the various skills and attitudes resilient people use to overcome traumas, missteps, and setbacks.
Resilience doesn’t just live in a world of superheroes but in everyday individuals. The ability to have the same outcomes as those heroes are within your very own reach. You don’t have to be super to take on the very personal real challenges in your life.
