People can be resilient and highly functional even when they are dealing with difficult situations. Yes they are perhaps not threatened by what’s to come, as you chart your course by action and not inaction, not paralysis and the term I use will be “Soldier through” whatever is happening. We are after all human, all events, significant events affect us, how we react to them define whether we will be “successful”. Success is a loaded term, as it defines what society holds as success, it is perhaps not a measured through a philosophy of life which perhaps can be different for different people. Having a few million dollars is perhaps not success, changing someone’s life, many people’s life in a positive way is success, making money is perhaps not success, but challenge of building something useful that as a by product makes money is success. Again it is perhaps a person’s view of what success looks like.
