We define resilience as the ability to bounce back. It is a virtue in business as it is in sport. Not every day is a bright day. There are the inevitable ups and downs in life. Resilience is the ability to come out of difficult times and fight back against adversity.
Virender Sehwag, for me, typifies resilience. His career has had its ups and downs. He began with a century on debut against South Africa in 2001. He became a regular feature in the Indian Test and one day squads until his fall from form saw him dropped for the tours to Bangladesh and England. Being dropped motivated him to do better said Sehwag.
