Resilience can often mean the difference between handling pressure and losing control. It gives you the strength to tackle problems head on and overcome adversity. The way you react to challenges and setbacks is a reflection of how resilient you are. Resilient people tend to maintain a more positive outlook - they learn from their experiences, cope more effectively and are healthier physically and mentally.
Resilience also means adopting healthy strategies for managing stress, and being fully aware of the difference between pressure - which can be positive and motivating - and stress, a natural reaction to too much pressure.
In fact, you could say resilience is the cornerstone of adaptability - an attribute we all need during times of rapid change to help us to achieve our goals.
