The skills of focus, persistence and resilience are three ingredients for a successful career and life. Focus is directing laser-like attention on a single topic, while ignoring irrelevant matters. Persistence is the quality of continuing going forward steadily despite problems, setbacks, difficulties, failures or obstacles. Resilience is the ability to recover quickly and bounce back, survive and flourish from the trials and tribulations of life. Those without resilience become helpless, discouraged and despondent, adopt a victim mentality or plunge into depression, and feelings of helplessness.
