“Do not judge me by my success, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.” What does it mean to be resilient? Can it be learned? Does adversity play a role in resiliency? Dr. Darren Jones, Beaumont Health's chief of behavioral health, joins the podcast to answer these questions and more.
Evidence shows that being resilient has many advantages in the workplace and your personal life, your physical and mental health, and believe it or not, history shows us humans, we are naturally resilient. In the time of adversity, we need to teach ourselves to name our stress, to be kind to ourselves and to have a curiosity about ourselves. Nelson Mandela once said, don't judge me by my success. Judge me by how many times I fell and got back up again.
