• Are intentional. That is, they are “on purpose” rather than reactive.
• Understand that what they do today affects tomorrow. That is, they understand that all things are connected in sometimes subtle and often profound ways.
• Display integrity in all areas of life. Because they are honest and keep their promises, people trust them.
• Are clear and forthright in assessing current reality, which helps them better understand the root causes of problems and evaluate the actions that are necessary to solve them.
• Align their daily actions with their values and most important goals.
• Are hopeful for a better future which they are motivated to help create.
As a result of these qualities, resilient people are influential, which in turn often thrusts them into leadership roles.
