The Growth Equation Guide to Resilience
What is resilience and how can we develop it?
We all experience difficult and trying times. Stress and setbacks are a part of life. Resilience is the capacity to bounce back from adversity. Resilience and its close cousin, toughness, are often praised, but seldom do we take the time to understand what they actually are and how to systematically develop them.
In the sections that follow, we use the latest science to dissect the psychology, biology, and philosophy of resilience. We also explain what you can do to improve your own capacity to handle, navigate, and bounce back from adversity. We hope you find these helpful.
