The concept of resilience has been transferred to psychology, encompassing a set of extraordinary qualities and attitudes, which allow us to recover and face adversities. Going beyond resilience includes: striving for a balance between the human needs, overcoming the trap of Postmodernity, inquiring about the great existential mysteries, fulfilling a purpose in life and pursuing happiness.
Humans possess extraordinary abilities that are superior to those of other species and their desires, motivated by primary (physiological and safety) and fundamental needs (belongingness, esteem and self-actualization) have virtually no limits. Overcoming adversities is a fact of spirituality and transcendence, aimed at finding the meaning of life and the faithful fulfillment of that extraordinary purpose.
The incredible human being has extraordinary abilities and skills, but he also is prone to suffer due to his adverse qualities and the disability to react adequately to adverse events and failures. Even many winners are aware of the complex human nature and about the harsh realities of life, and use certain strategies.
Good and bad luck are very powerful beliefs that are deeply rooted within the modern culture. Considering that the superstitious thought is proper of the human being, it can be discussed whether good luck is a matter exclusively of superstitions, random circumstances or personal attitudes and abilities, or if it depends on all these factors.

On the one hand, Job was resilient and on the other hand, stand out certain keys of his sensational triumph.
