How To Bounce Back From Failure - Happiness isn't the opposite of depression..resilience is | Joy and Business | Scoop.it
"Happiness isn't the opposite of depression -- resilience is, according to psychologist Peter Kramer. Think of the people you most admire -- many of them didn't get where they are just by sailing through life without any negative experiences or failures. Most of them distinguished themselves by their ability to get right back up every time they fall, a truism reflected in countless inspirational quotations on the power of perseverance." This article presents seven habits of highly resilient people, with practical ways that you can improve your own ability to cope with life's challenges.
