Resilience. This past weekend they played the US Open Golf tournament just outside Washington, DC. What we witnessed was the definition of resilience. A young Irish lad of 22, who is on track to become the next best golfer, has had great success but also a couple of incredible "golf disasters" at the British Open in 2010 and, in April, at the Masters in Augusta, where he took a 4 shot lead into the final round and shot an 80 to lose it. Yesterday he won by an amazing 8 shots, set twelve (12) records, and gave his Dad a great Father's Day present - major championship! The resilience he demonstrated, the focus,
the fun, the ability to learn from past mistakes, was a lesson for us all. How often do we get "beaten down" by events and circumstances and struggle to come back and make even greater things happen? As we start the summer season give some thought as to what you have learned and how you can continue to improve as a person and to make a contribution to your community and our world.

" In order to succeed, people need a sense of self-efficacy, struggle together with resilience to meet the inevitable obstacles and inequities of life
