Project Discovery with Big Wave Surfer Laird Hamilton
We can seek inspiration on how to build resilience from Land Rover Ambassador and big-wave surfing pioneer Laird Hamilton, as part of a wider initiative called Project Discovery.
Project Discovery was an international research study commissioned by Land Rover that uncovered that only 7% of people met a scientific definition of ‘highly resilient’. But the ability to cope with challenging situations is something we can develop over time. Three factors help to build resilience; Friends and Family, Enrichment with Purpose, and the Spirit of Discovery.
Laird Hamilton demonstrates resilience throughout his life in the face of one of nature’s most powerful forces. After a period when the world faced unprecedented challenges, Laird explores what’s important to him in life and how these he builds mental and physical resilience.
