“Resiliency is understanding that adversity is a fact of life and it is about rebounding and finding some sort of a positive out of every situation/scenario.  When we face adversity, we learn things about ourselves and those around us that we never knew.  It is difficult to see a positive in some situations but there is always that silver lining and something good we can gain from that experience.


As a master resilience trainer, I try to help teach skills to fellow Airmen on ways to get through adversity when they encounter it.  We don't go to war without being trained and we shouldn't be going through life without skills to help get through adversity when it happens.  We need to establish a solid foundation spiritually, mentally, physically and socially to help us get through the difficulties we may face in life.


I think the lifestyle that I grew up with is what makes me a good MRT. I understand that adversity is something that we have to face in our lives and there is a way to get through it.  The outlook I try to take and focus on is ‘Life is tough but the alternative is unacceptable.’”
