Here is why many people give up career opportunities...

You cannot fall from the floor. Is that true?

2024 April 26 | by Arduino Mancini Resilience - Survival Tactics

There are people who, to avoid taking risks, give up their careers. I just wanted to ask you this: do you think this behaviour makes sense? Does giving up a career actually lead to greater job security? Or, on the contrary, is it possible to fall even staying “on the floor”?

Why, watching beyond what is in front of you pays off!

What's beyond the clouds?

2024 January 16 | by Arduino Mancini Resilience

I took this picture in Kronplatz (Plan de Corones), Puster Valley, in December last year, during a short vacation. That morning I left the hotel for the usual walk in the snow: the weather was not the most inviting. Low clouds, particularly harsh temperature, freezing wind. In short, a wolf’s weather! I walked up a […]

Do you know why I detest poverty?

2024 January 10 | by Arduino Mancini Resilience

I read this morning a thought by Afro-American writer Zora Neale Hurston. There is something about poverty that smells of death. You dream about dead people who fall from your heart like leaves in the dry season and rot around your feet; impulses smothered too long in the fetid air of underground caves. Although the […]

Ten things that will make the new year a better one

2023 December 28 | by Arduino Mancini Resilience

Here we are finally in the New Year, and we are leaving behind an undeniably difficult one. How is the coming year looking? To say that the worst is over is excessive, just as it is inappropriate to think that everything depends on external factors, independent of our control. What can we do, individually, to […]

Four good reasons to complain persistently

2023 December 18 | by Arduino Mancini Resilience - Stratagems to succeed

After careful reflection, I have concluded that repeated use of complaining can only be convenient for most people working in organizations. Let’s look at the reasons together: complaining keeps people out of your way who, when they meet you, sooner or later say “Blessed are you”, inferring that you don’t deserve what you have; your […]

How the sense of powerlessness can be learned. And taught!

You should not think, you just must do it!

2023 July 26 | by Arduino Mancini Resilience

In the cartoon strip, I have reported a conversation that everyone has experienced at least once: which I hope has provoked in you at least a motion of rebellion. Where do expressions such as “You don’t have to think, you just have to obey” come from? What is its purpose? Can one learn pessimism? And […]

… and a video that will inspire you!


2023 May 10 | by Arduino Mancini Resilience

Many people ask me how to react to a failure, that is when the slap they received was loud and left them there in confusion. Well, it is difficult to answer, because the situations can be quite different. I find it more convenient, and useful, to suggest some behaviours to avoid, those that might prevent […]

How many times have you been told "you won't make it"?

2023 February 07 | by Arduino Mancini Resilience

Want to know why I ask you this question? I will tell you right now. I hear repeatedly about talents, just those people who Mother Nature is supposed to have endowed with natural gifts and who succeed seemingly without any effort: the world seems more and more divided between those who are naturally born to […]

And my best wishes, of course…

Nine things NOT to do for a new year full of… resilience!

2022 December 11 | by Arduino Mancini Resilience

The outlook for the year to come talks of a tough year: the tail end of the pandemic, not yet defeated; a war in Europe and conflicts scattered all over the planet; a rise in inflation that threatens to slow down the economy’s growth momentum; and, last but not least, global warming that threatens to […]

I tell you with a short video clip

When you feel you can't cope, what can you do?

2022 October 26 | by Arduino Mancini Resilience

I have unearthed Paralympic Games trailers that will leave you speechless: let me introduce you to one of them, and then I will tell you why it may be quite useful.     Who can find inspiration in these short videos? I would say three distinct categories of people. First, people who are affected by […]
