Resiliency has been on my mind a lot this week. When we turn on the news, we are flooded with stories of people giving up and people being overcome by adversity.
As a society, we need to become more resilient. As a leader, we need to be resilient. People will fight us, try to make us fail and talk behind our backs, but if we can look at this adversity and wear it as armor as we grow stronger, we will be far more successful.
Two questions to start a conversation this week:
Are people born resilient? If not, can they be taught?
What are the characteristics of someone who is resilient?
Please share your thoughts below. I’d also love to hear some stories of resiliency.
