Resilience is the capacity to bounce back, to pick yourself up from even the deepest depths and put one foot in front of the other. Resilience is an invaluable skill that sets you up for a lifetime of success. Your library carries hundreds of self-help books on building and repairing the inner self, to help you rebound from illness, job loss, a bad break-up, and most difficult of all, the loss of a loved one.
