Why are the Wright brothers are resilient?

  • They never quit, for instance, it took them over two-hundred designs to find the right wing design to support their first glider and later their first plane.
  • They tried and tried again even with no avail

A blast from the past!

Jon "Big Show" Mengering

Big Show is resilient because:


  • He was an oddity and had to deal with adversity which made him resilient
  • "So, imagine if you will, an intelligent, glass wearing, larger than everyone else kid, oh lest I forget, for much of my life I walked as if I had two left feet, didn't talk much because I was unsure of myself, so yeah you could say I was resilient by necessity more so than anything else."

I am resilient because:

  • I never let anything bother me
  • I push through adversity with ease
  • "just remember that with every problem you can’t go over it, you can’t go around it, you can’t go under it, so you gotta go through it."
