BONUS: If You’re Struggling Right Now, This Is For You

Hey Outlouders. Dropping this No Filter episode into your feed in case you need it this week. It's all about resilience, something many of us are struggling with right now. If you are, sending love. 

Hugh van Cuylenberg’s job is to teach resilience. He was a primary school teacher volunteering in Northern India when he had a life-changing realisation. Despite the underprivileged community, the children were from, they were remarkably positive. But back in Australia? Well, people found it hard to be happy and they had so much.

Which is how The Resilience Project came to life. He learned that there are three key traits and behaviours that are the keys to resilience. And now he teaches it to others at conferences, in his podcast, The Imperfects, and in his book called The Resilience Project.

So if you’re feeling a bit shit right now - or you’ve ever felt a bit shit - this one is for you.


With thanks to Hugh van Cuylenburg. You can find out more about him here:
