What would you do if you knew you could pick yourself up and easily carry on if things don’t work out? Have you ever wondered why some people are able to bounce back quickly while others can’t? Now you can learn techniques that will give you the power and mental strength to be resilient. Resilience is a learnable skill with its basis in healthy self-esteem, optimism, and belief in yourself. Resilient individuals have better lives. They recover faster from heartache. They have more successful careers and they are physically and mentally healthier. Resilience can prevent and cure PTSD. Once you develop resilience, your automatic response to everything you experience will be less stressful than it is now. Our habits of thought determine how we respond to the events of our life, from microaggressions to trauma, job loss to divorce, death, disability, defeat on the sports field, and even defeat at the ballot box.
Learning skills-based resilience puts you in charge of your response. Suffering is optional. The response we choose can make us suffer or empower us with determination to overcome any adversity. Less stress means more fun and more confidence. Imagine being fearless because you know you will be able to be happy even if things don’t turn out exactly the way you want them to. Imagine what it is like to move through life not worrying about what others think or say about you because their opinions don’t have the power to make you feel bad. You deserve a life you enjoy. It’s up to you. No one can shield you from life’s ups and downs, but resilient thinking makes it easier to keep going and easier to have fun along the way. Resilience makes life easier. Be ready for life. Prepare for the unexpected. Trust yourself to thrive under any conditions.
