Resilience and Tenacity

"... Add to those Resilience, and you have the makings of a good story!

To me, the difference between Resilience and Tenacity, because before I started writing this, I would have probably used these interchangably!

Resilience is a flexability, like a palm tree in a hurricane. Bend, bend, bend until you touch the ground, but when the storm passes, you just pop right back up again!

Tenacity is the roots of the palm tree, the anchor that keeps you from blowing away in the storm. Its digging your toe nails in so you can stand your ground.

Tenacity is "Rocky" when he looks at "Appollo" and says "I'm not going down again", after Appollo had already knocked him down several times. "

(something that just flowed just now, while I was writing for an unnamed, up coming book. You'll have to just stand there and wait for the rest of it!
