Grit, discipline and resilience: The experts’ tools of survival
Resilience is a skill you can add to your repertoire, not an innate quality that you are born with or without. It comes down to grit, the ability to grind through tough moments for a long-term goal, and discipline.
Highly-resilient people have a mixture of passion, a hatred for complacency, a sense of hope, and are always centred in the reality that things can (and often do) go wrong.
In this Expert’s Playbook, SmartCompany Plus distills advice on how to get grittier, persevere, and work through the hard times to make it through to the other side.

“The first trait that resilient people have is an acceptance of reality,” writes Paul Jarvis in Company of One: Why Staying Small is the Next Big Thing for Business.
