Whether facing a derailed project at work, rejection in a job search or a loss on the field, we all need resilience to keep moving forward. Keeping our personal energy barrels full is not a luxury, it's a necessity. 

Athletes know they can't perform ON the field if they don't take care of themselves OFF the field. The same rule applies to us as leaders! Yet often self-care goes out the window due to deadlines, family obligations and other stressors.
