What Separates Resilient People

Scenario: "Dude, I want to be resilient, but people screw me up all the time. Ahh!" What's one of the key variables that distinguishes resilient people from the quitters? Self-accountability. According to a study by Harvard's Psychiatrist Stuart Hauser, resilient people:

...were really quite talented at taking responsibility. Most people in the world don't take responsibility, they see things as other people's fault. But every one of the resilient kids were very, very clear about their contribution to the mess that they were in. The boy we called Pete was expelled from school a million times, and he could tell each time how he kicked someone in the shin or gave some teacher a hard time, and that got him kicked out. He never blamed the school for kicking him out. They had self-confidence.

Building resilience takes a simple switch in mindset. Instead of blaming ______________, start blaming yourself for whatever predicament you're in. The beauty in that? You'll start seeking solutions to get out of it.

"It's me."
