Resilient– Resilience means that you are able to bounce back after a mistake, or setback, or adversity. And a setback could be something as small as a missing a serve or something big like playing a whole season and not winning a single game. But being resilient means that you’ll still be able to succeed after you’ve experienced those setbacks. A good way to put this one is to think about the old Japanese Proverb that says, “Fall seven times and stand up eight.” It literally means even if you face a challenge, don’t let it stop you. And even if you overcome that challenge and then face a new one, don’t let that stop you either. There will always be setbacks and we need to be ready to face them head-on.
