Do not judge me by my success, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again."- Nelson Mandela


Resilience is being able to transform challenging experiences into learning opportunities. Resilience is not a trait that people either have or do not have. Each time you live through adversity, you learn something new about yourself and are more prepared for the next challenge you will face. 

You can learn to become resilient by paying attention to what is happening in your life and learning new skills and habits to help you cope with stress and challenges but just because you learn resilience doesn't mean you won't feel stressed or anxious. You might have times when you aren't happy - and that's OK. Resilience is a journey, and each person will take his or her own time along the way.

Being resilient doesn’t protect you from pain and suffering, but it can provide you better ways to respond so that you are able to face, overcome and be transformed from adversity.
