Resilience has been related to great leaders who left indelible marks in the face of the world. Most great leaders have lost resilience and balance in their lives more than once hence gliding into imbalanced lives of depression. A well balanced life is more important than riches and stature. Most people will prefer a balanced life to riches and high position. Lack of resilience bears lack of balance which in turn turns one’s life upside down, inside out. A story of one strong leader is told. The leader, lost balance at some point in his life and what followed afterwards, was a disastrous and a miserable life. He totally lost focus and small things destabilized his ever stable composure.
