A while back, I read that building non-cognitive skills helps produce a number of positive characteristics. One of them is resilience.
I began to wonder, “How resilient am I as a person?” I thought about my life story. I had to admit that while I believe in my inner strength, I have also disappointed myself more than once by not bouncing back from difficulty. Hmmm … could I use some resilience building?
After watching Jane McGonigal’s TED talk, I think that we all can use this. Not just to become more resilient in general but to understand the various forms of resilience and how they contribute to better living.
