Resilience Facts

There are many reasons for improving and building on our own personal resilience.  What are yours?

Here are some ideas….

What is Resilience?

Resilience is the human capacity to face, overcome and be strengthened, and even transformed, by experiences of adversity.

Resilience can be Learned

Resilience can be learned.  All humans have the capacity to become resilient – everyone is able to learn how to face the inevitable adversities of life.

How you Respond

Resilience is all about your response – managing your mind-set and emotions, being proactive and cultivating high self care. When we build resilience we can weather the most severe storms.

Resilience not Resistance

Resistance is inflexible, frozen, stuck and acts as a barrier to change – it holds back progress.  Resilient people see the opportunity in change and can thrive in a changing environment.

Respond don’t React

Being in a reactive state is the opposite of resilience.  It creates greater risk of physical illness as well as emotional distress.  The more time you spend in a reactive state the more t becomes the norm.  Resilience is developing the ability to respond instead of react.

Realistic Optimism

Being able to create a new vision and see a better future enables the realistic optimist to be determined and persist in taking positive action, DESPITE obstacles and setbacks.


So, what are the benefits of building your own resilience?

  • You can learn to become aware of what your triggers are so you can learn to RESPOND instead of react.
  • Did you know you always have a choice?  Making no choice is a choice!  Resilience training helps you to develop your decision making and problem solving skills so you feel more confident and in control of what happens.
  • You can learn to increase empathy through trust.  To increase empathy is to gain trust and trust is the basis of all healthy relationships.
  • Being mindful to the present moment is a great help when you are trying to come out of the reactive mode into the responsive mode.
