Resilience in Adversity

I’ve always been fascinated by the differences in people — especially in difficult times. Why are some people more resilient than others?

What makes some so different that they exhibit resilience in adversity? Joining me as co-host in this chat to explore resilience in adversity is Michael Ballard as he shares what facing death three times can do to help you discover resiliency!

Resilience in Adversity: What’s the Secret?

There are people who crumble in the toughest times. Quite understandable. There are others who rally and stay filled with hope and determination. Admirable to be sure. What can we all learn from everyone to find resilience in adversity?

Some questions to get us thinking in advance:

  • What beliefs/mindsets are integral to resiliency?
  • “Nothing will work unless you do.” ~Maya Angelou Is this a necessary belief for resiliency? Agree/Disagree?
  • How does a network of support impact resiliency? Does it make people more passive?
  • How do great people skills increase or decrease resiliency?
  • Does resiliency ebb and flow or stay constant? Pls. explain?
  • How are flexibility and resiliency related if at all?
  • Facing death would make me feel ____________________________. Why?
  • OPINION: Who is more likely to be resilient – those who’ve had much or little to start? Why?
  • Do highly resilient people live w/ scars and overcome them or do they not live the scars? Pls. explain.
  • What factors separate ‘thrivers’ from survivors?

These are just some questions to get us thinking. Actual questions will post live during the chat.
