Moving Forward with Resilience and Perseverance

In last week’s episode of On the Red Dot, Puddleworld – a collaboration project in support of cancer by InHerShoes and TSPP – was once again featured alongside other commendable individuals.

Though each of them faced different challenges, they shared a common trait – they pushed forth instead of letting setbacks get them down. Knowingly or unknowingly, they had utilised resilience, a major tenet of Positive Psychology. Their perseverance enabled them to make the most of what they had, and sometimes even achieve new heights.
