  10. 10. Resilience “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’tbe trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your owninner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve JobsResilience is the ability to persevere and adapt when things aren’t going the way we’d like. When we act resiliently, we act from a proactive place of power instead of a reactive place of fear.

Tolerance is also the abilityto recognize and eliminate behaviors, thoughts and habits that hold you back from being your personal best.
