What are your sources of resilience?
How many challenges have you faced as an individual in the last week, month, year, decade or lifetime?
Challenge can be negative or traumatic. Or it can be something that shapes us and help us grow. The difference can be down to our resilience, our ability to adapt to change and reshape ourselves to it.
“Resilience: The ability of an individual or organisation to adjust to or recover from disruption, change, challenge, adversity or crisis.“
