BUILDING RESILIENCE IN TIMES OF CHANGE (MAD)

In the wake of the recent and unprecedented circumstances provoked by the COVID19 pandemic, there’s a new interest in strengthening individuals, companies, and nations’ resilience to external shocks.
Resilience means getting stronger in the face of a challenge. It means developing the skills and confidence to overcome adversity in a way that brings more learning and strength to our life.
As Nobel Prize-winning philosopher Albert Camus once said, “In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.”
We are going to face adversity, setbacks, and disappointments in our life. Suffering is an inevitable part of every human existence. Our achievements and wellbeing will depend on how well we respond to these challenges.
Resilient people are better at bouncing back after a disappointment or a failure. As a result, they are more courageous and tenacious. In this new decade, humanity will be encountering more opportunities and creating more wealth than it has in the entire past century. If we don’t exercise resilience, put courage into practice and develop a growth mind-set, we will miss out on the most extraordinary time ever.
