Characterizing Resilience

“Resilient people […] possess three characteristics: a staunch acceptance of reality; a deep belief, often buttressed by strongly held values, that life is meaningful; and an uncanny ability to improvise.

 

You can bounce back from hardship with just one or two of these qualities, but you will only be truly resilient with all three.”

Diane L. Coutu, senior editor at Harvard Business Review, as cited.
