Professor Carey Cooper who is the leading UK Researcher in wellbeing in the workplace says ‘People who are either trained to be or are naturally more resilient, show much high productivity levels. People have been talking about it for a while.
‘The greatest glory of living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time you fall’ Nelson Mandela
‘It’s not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent but the most responsive to change’ Charles Darwin
‘It ain’t how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward’ (Rocky Balboa)
The area of resilience is where we should be working. Christianity has a lot to offer in the area and perhaps has been talking about it longer than even the former quotes. The Apostle Paul 2000 years ago said, ‘I glory in suffering for suffering produces perseverance, perseverance character and character hope.’ Invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
