    "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.

    Learning Objectives

    • What resilience is — what it isn't
    • What it takes to increase your mental toughness
    • Why all great success rests on a foundation of resilience
    • The nature of control in achieving success — both internal locus and external.
    • How not to respond to adversity—the trap of learned helplessness.
    • Take assessments, perform exercises and do application assignments

    If you act to change the existing order of things, you are on the Quest of Heroes.


    This gives you a great and noble purpose, to fundamentally make your world a better place. For in the structure the hero's journey, we see our own struggles to achieve. 

    The story of the hero is ancient, yet still alive today.

    Many of our greatest works of literature and our most popular movies have as their fundamental focus the Quest of the Hero. 

    And in the story of the hero, we see our own story—or what might be your own story. For it is true today as it was in the past, that doing anything great is going to be difficult. 

    Yet, we can earn from those who have gone before, and make our own road easier, the journey quicker, the path less likely to end up in failure.

        Step 1: Craft Your Vision: Flesh Out The Four Roles To a Better Future

        This module is also currently available as a Self-paced Course OR with Coaching & Mentoring.



        Roles aren't just played in Hollywood and Bollywood. On the stage of work, you can be a bit player or a star. Imagine your future roles a future you define — not your boss, not your parents, not your university — you.

        See the Module Course Description 

        Step 2: Set-Up the Environmental Scanning Process




        Sure, you can surround yourself with a zone of complacency and now understand what's going on. But the world is stronger than your security blanket. You might as well know as to be ignorant.    

        Step 3: Identify and Prioritize Threats and Opportunities

        "Luck is what you call it when preparation meets opportunity." — Gen. David Petraeous, Frequent Saying, Washington Post, June 23, 2010


        You’ll be in the career slow lane if you can’t sense opportunity. Worse, you can lose what you have if you don’t deal with primary threats. Be a strategist — of your own career. 

        Globalization is not all peace, love and happiness. The evolving global economic structure has created a number of real threats and possible threats that will have to be dealt with and planned for. This section will look at existing threats and highly probable ones impacting global business.

        It was once said that opportunity is often masked as an insurmountable problem. Since there are no lack of problems in the world, we all must be surrounded by opportunity.

        Unfortunately, very few people know what opportunity is let alone sense it. To paraphrase a Winston Churchill hill saying, "The average man trips over opportunity, but quickly stands up and keeps going."

        Step 4Uncover Your Core Five Skill-sets, Your Virtues, Your Traits 

        “You get hired because of your strengths, fired because your weaknesses.” — Murray Johannsen




        Image by: AnonMoos

        You can't easily change your traits, but you can build your skills. Some skills are always in demand and always pay well. Paradoxically, these are often skills not taught in the universities.  

        In the Core Five model, every role has a unique set of five competencies. They are:

        • Technical. 

        • Leadership. 

        • Management. 

        • Strategy and Tactics, and 

        • Self-Mastery. 

        Be smart — build what the universities don't teach you but corporations want — and what your desired roles require  

        Step 5:  Determine Your Own Strengths and Weaknesses

        “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” — Sun Tzu, The Art of War

        “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” ― Abraham Lincoln

        As Legacees founder likes to say, “Your strengths get you hired, your weaknesses get you fired." There’s nothing worse than being blind-sided; you can’t fix what you don’t know was broken. 

        And remember, no great dream is every achieved with the strengths you now have. Iif you see yourself as an unfinished work, as someone who doesn’t want the same job for 30 years, as a person who wants to move up the ladder of success, you better work on those weaknesses.

        Step 6: Take Action: Perfect The Art of Strategy and Tactical Execution


        Mapping. On the journey of life, you better have a map or you will always be lost. That's the purpose for the first six steps. 

        Once map has given you the layout and your destination, but one must choose from among different paths to get there. For example, skills needed must be built and ignorance diminished.   

        This is the Routing. Choosing the best path is not so easy when you have lots of alternatives to sort through.

        One has to figure out how this has to be done. Understand that there are others who can do your job and machines might as well so forever build skills. Don't stop  

        This is where assessments, a mentor, or a coach comes in handy — it’s vital to get feedback from an expert. They can provide specific details only someone who really mastered a skill is capable of knowing.

        And to make the course more enjoyable, there are:

        Memorable Quotes. Lots of them from the famous and the wise.

        Beautiful Images. Numerous paintings from the old masters. After all, eyes were not made to see in black and white.

        Faded Laurels. Skills have to be refreshed. It doesn't pay to rest on what used to work.
