Listen to Special Guests | Cheryl Richardson: "Monthly Telegathering with Dr. Joan Borysenko November 30, 2009. The book is called It’s Not the End of the World: Developing Resilience in Times of Change. Hear the extraordinary story of how Joan found resilience after a family tragedy, and was able to shift gears and begin a whole new line of work that has helped thousands of people. And, learn how to develop this kind of powerful resilience, too!"

Dr. Borysenko points out that resilience research shows some components of resiliency come from the characteristics of:

1. Realism
  • Have you ever thought that maybe a pessimist is a disappointed optimist or idealist?
  • "Pessimist complain about the wind. Optimists expect the wind to change. Realists adjust the sails."
  • Optimists tend to possess very little resiliency.

2. Faith
An openness to live in the moment.

3. Creativity
