Resilience can take you far in life and it’s what most athletes train for. Whether or not you think you are an athlete, I’m here to tell you, you are an athlete in the game of life. I recommend we all grow our resilience muscles.
Let’s start with defining it:
- The capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.
- The ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; elasticity.
And then let’s look at some synonyms of resilience – flexibility, pliability, suppleness, plasticity, elasticity, springiness.
I’ll go further and state that if we can develop resiliency in the game of life, we’ll be able to recover quickly and bounce back from adversity.
