Never Waste An Injury: The Psychology of Setbacks in Combat Sports

The following is a quote from the article:

Scientists refer to this acquisition of growth from adversity as “adversarial growth”. In research it is defined as:

“These positive changes share the common factor of struggling with adversity, hence we refer to them collectively as adversarial growth. It is through this process of struggling with adversity that changes may arise that propel the individual to a higher level of functioning than that which existed prior to the event. These positive changes have been labelled post-traumatic growth, stress-related growth, perceived benefits, thriving, blessings, positive by-products, positive adjustment, and positive adaptation.” – Alex Linley & Stephen Joseph 2004
