In his great book Antifragile, Nassim Taleb walks us through the fact that there’s a big difference between being fragile, being resilient, and being ANTIfragile.
 
In short:
 
If you’re fragile and life hits you hard, you break.
 
If you’re resilient and life hits you hard, you withstand more and… eventually…  you break.
 
But…
 
If you’re ANTIFRAGILE, when life hits you hard you actually get stronger.
 
Think about that. 
 
The more you get kicked around and challenged by life, the S T R O N G E R you get. 
 
Wouldn’t that be awesome?
 
As Nassim tells us and we would be wise to remember: A wind extinguishes a candle but fuels a fire.”
 
Let’s build a bonfire.
 
(On that note, how about this gem from Rumi: I am burning. If anyone lacks tinder, let him set his rubbish ablaze with my fire.”)
