Under intense pressure and stress, what separates those that thrive versus those that fold under pressure? In the world of elite athletics, the power of resilience is on constant display. Some players and teams rise up in the face of insurmountable odds while others collapse under the stress. The answer lies within an athlete’s training and ability to build resilience in both body and mind. Science has taught us that we are not necessarily born resilient, but we certainly can build the capacity for resilience over time.
