What does it mean to be resilient? It’s easy to say what it’s not: Resilience is more than stick-to-it-iveness, not quite grit, and deeper than mere success. Despite its nebulous nature, resilience has been held up as a critical skill in the face of adversity. In this series, Quartz highlights perspectives on a state of being that many aspire to, but few can define—and even fewer feel they can achieve.
