“Resilience simply means the ability to rebound; to experience defeat, absorb it, assess the loss and after assessing the possibilities, setting the experience of loss aside to make an amazing comeback that stuns self, as well as observers. According to Solomon (2013), in relation to sports, resilience is the ability to remain composed, confident, and consistent in the face of errors. A resilient athlete is one who can let go of errors and return to the present; s/he uses the error as an opportunity to learn and improve.”(Mitchell, 2016, p.22).

No other nation of her size has produced what she has produced with the resources that she has been given.”(Mitchell, 2016, p.24).
