When an “Epidemic of Uncertainty” occurs, a successful person’s priority is to Survive. Once they are secure in their ability to survive, they shift their focus to the next level: how to Thrive.

Just being resilient means returning to your original form after tough situations. Having True Resiliency means that you come back even better than you were before — so when you fall, who you become is who will catch you. Therefore, you want to come back and achieve Greatness.
