“When life gets tough, the tough get going.”
In every walk of life, adversity is inevitable. Overcoming adversity requires nurturing and strengthening one’s “psychological body armour that provides the capacity to regenerate, recoup and re-learn to rebound and recoil and return to the original shape.,”

The ability to adapt to life’s misfortunes and setbacks and harness the inner strength to rebound from a setback or challenge is called becoming “Resilient”. To recover, recoil, in physical sciences, the meaning “elasticity, power of returning to original shape after compression — this is the science behind not giving up, in other words, “Bounce Back”.
“Enthusiasm is common. Endurance is rare.” – Let us think about it.
Resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; by looking into self.
Build skills to endure hardship.
“The oak fought the wind and was broken; the willow bent when it must and survived.”
“Life is not about how many times you fall….” It’s about how many times.
You BOUNCE back up.” Every time you get up, get up as a new person.
