Some years ago I participated in Dr. Martin Seligman's first international Authentic Happiness program and it included conversations in real time with positive psychology pioneers. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi spoke engagingly about creativity and I was inspired to read his book FLOW: The Psychology of Optimal Experience.
Today I'm sharing a quote from his book CREATIVITY: Flow and the Psychology of Discovery and Invention.
"Creative individuals are remarkable for their ability to adapt to almost any situation and to make do with whatever is at hand to reach their goals."
Aha! Sounds like resiliency!
P.S. In order to pronounce his name with my clumsy tongue, I use the cue phrase: [The] check sent me high!
