    The connection of adaptability and resilience with Ido Singer

    Ido Singer is on a mission to inspire others. 

    His confidence was boosted after learning to play basketball at a young age in Israel. It wasn't easy for him at first but through a lot of hard work, he eventually played basketball at the professional level.  Resilience and learning to adapt to different situations paid off, and Ido's passion for sports led him to be a coach that focuses on creating a positive culture.  

    Ido is currently the Assistant Basketball Women's Coach at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro, and the host of One Last Thought Podcast.  The podcast keeps things simple - the episodes are 10 minutes or less - and focuses on bite-sized pieces of wisdom and life-changing advice from guests.

    He and his wife have 3 young children, twin girls who are 5 and a 2-year-old son.  As a parent and the need to travel with the team, helping to raise a family can be difficult and challenging sometimes, but Ido is truly grateful for his wife's support.

    Fulfilling personal principles with Evan Knox

    Fulfilling personal principles with Evan Knox

    Life is constantly changing and Evan Knox understands the importance of learning.  Learning new things is what keeps you agile, flexible and strong. He also understands that resilience goes hand-in-hand with running a business and trying to balance life at home with family.



    Evan is the founder of Caffeine Marketing and has been an entrepreneur since he was 12; always doing something in some shape or form. Having a business is part of fulfilling his principles and personal mission statement. 



    His father and grandfather are important role models for him as both were business owners.  Evan's father passed away 3 years ago and that was very difficult to overcome.



    Evan makes time each day to focus on self-care (proper sleep, nutrition, exercise) so he's not exhausted. He recently started doing jujitsu, which starts at 6am in the morning. This type of workout helps frame his mindset the rest of the day...allowing him to "shoot out emails at a whole new level of confidence" at work.

    Being friends with your illness with Deva Joy

    Being friends with your illness with Deva Joy

    Gratitude is a huge byproduct of dealing with a health issue. And Deva Joy's picture should be placed next to the definition of resilience. 

    She was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis as a young teen and this limited her physical ability. Instead of being negative about the situation, Deva decided to focus on what she could move and not what she couldn't move. She also chose the perspective of looking at her illness as a relationship, like a marriage. You're going to be together for a long time.  

    Deva Joy is an author and a psychotherapist for over 30 years. She has some great resources you should check out at Healing Heart Communications.
