Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, March 6, 2:43 AM

Resilience presents a challenge for psychologists. Whether you can be said to have it or not largely depends not on any particular psychological test but on the way your life unfolds. If you are lucky enough to never experience any sort of adversity, we won’t know how resilient you are. It’s only when you’re faced with obstacles, stress, and other environmental threats that resilience, or the lack of it, emerges: Do you succumb or do you surmount?

Barbara Kerr's insight:

"Resilience, however, is not a silver bullet which automatically eliminates all problems of someone. It gives people the strength to directly face problems, to overcome adversity and to move on with their lives. (e.g. after a personal loss, sickness, nature catastrophe, etc.). People are able to marshal the strength to not just survive, but to prosper."

Are Happy Leaders Better at Developing Resilience? | Emotional Intelligence Development | Scoop.it
It is too easy to forget the pure joy happiness brings as it reveals the truth. After all, when we are truly happy doesn't everything feel more balanced, less extreme, and more like it truly is, without the shadows of darkness and worry? All things happen in a better way when we are happy.
Barbara Kerr's insight:

"Pharrell Williams' song Happy has lifted the mood of millions.  It did not win the Oscar for best original song, but it won hearts and is played and replayed on every vehicle for music available. Why? Because we want to be happy don't we?  And we want our children, our own and those who come to school every day, to be happy also."
