According to a Ted Talk given by Lucy Hone, three characteristics of resilient people are as follows...

1. Resilient people understand that shit happens and that suffering is a part of human existence. Every human goes through tough times.

2. Resilient people choose carefully where they focus their attention. They focus what they can change and accept the things they can't. They intentionally, deliberately and with ongoing effort tune into what they are grateful for in their lives.

3. Resilient people ask themselves- "Is this helping me or harming me?" In regards to behaviors, thought patterns, and decision making.

I present this information to you to do with it as you please. Personally I consider myself a resilient person but never knew exactly why and this shined a lot of light on the subject.
