I've been doing a lot of hiking lately in preparation for an expedition up the 19,000 foot Mt. Orizaba in Mexico.
I'll be undertaking this journey in January with the good people from Climb For Hope, an organization that has raised over $750,000 in the past 13 years for immunotherapy research. These funds have been invaluable in helping alleviate the suffering of cancer and MS patients.
This will be my third climb with this amazing group of people, and the most challenging yet. This kind of journey reveals insight into the call for fostering resilience to face, manage, and overcome challenges.
Research has shown that the happiest and most positive people are those who are resilient in overcoming life's challenges, and the most resilient people of all are those who have fostered high valued relationships.
In other words, when we work together we're able to do more than we could ever hope to do apart. And this is certainly true for a motivated group of climbers joining together to battle disease.
What can you do to foster resilience to face, manage, and overcome your challenges?
