"When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” — Kennedy Family Motto
Many problems bedevil us. We face rejection, job loss, lost friends and love ones, but still we must go on. In psychology, resilience is the capacity of people to cope with problems, issues, and catastrophes.
Underlying all success is the mental toughness to overcome defeats, losses, problems, obstacles, mistakes, the critics, the naysayers, the pessimists, the complainers, and those who say it can’t be done. The fundamental truth: nothing rolls down the hill until after it long has been pushed up hill.
Anything really worth doing, is going to be difficult.
And since most everyone will face difficulties at some point of life, it is important to understand how resiliency works and how mental toughness can be enhanced.
