Resilient individuals don’t just survive, they thrive. They do well during good times and bad. It doesn’t matter what life throws at them.
Becoming resilient should be the goal of any sane person in this increasingly crazy world.
Unfortunately, it isn’t easy. Resilience isn’t found in a location. It isn’t contained in a product or package that you can buy.
It’s a state of mind. A way of thinking only achieved through hard work. It’s something you assemble one step at a time.
Steps like getting trained in a new skill. Mastering a body of knowledge. Attaining a level of physical fitness. Completing an ambitious do-it-yourself project. Bonding with other people that are on their own quest for resilience. Starting a new venture or company.
Making the choice to become resilient is the first step.
