Life brings us surprises far beyond our imagination. On top of that, there comes no manual of instructions or any pre-preparation phase before trials and challenges. The key factor that helps us persist and maintain our calm, is resilience. Resilience is the ability to adapt to stressful situations whether they are small setbacks or major catastrophes of life.
To explain it further, we would like to share the story of a man about his arduous journey of surviving prostate cancer. He has been deeply inspired by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and the Italian craft and culture.

Rather than adopting the approach of ‘why me’, he went on to fight this lethal enemy with utter courage and resilience because he was strongly committed to his vision.
