What do Barack Obama, J. K. Rowling and Richard Branson have in common? They've all experienced challenges, failure and setbacks, and yet they are among the most successful people in the world. They have made mistakes and had to deal with bad publicity. Yet they seem to perform at their best when others don't.

It seems as if successful people have a trait that allows them to use setbacks to their advantage. Overcoming those setbacks with your own strength is also known as mental resilience.

This meetup group aims at exploring the concepts behind mental resilience so that you can use them to your advantage.
