10 Famous Founders Quotes On Building Resilience

Building resilience is an important part of growth and change. In the Covid-19 era, building resilience is more important than ever and here at Ormeau Baths, our aim is to support our members as best we can now and always. There are several ways to cultivate and encourage resilience in others. Sometimes it takes finding a mantra to carry us through, sometimes it's taking time to move and care for our body and sometimes it calls for totally switching off for a period of time to rebuild your energy and resilience reserves and come back fighting. Today we're focusing on the former and leaning on the wise words of fellow leaders and entrepreneurs.
