In today’s digital age, we are bombarded with information, overstimulated, and overloaded with deadlines, tasks, and deliverables. We have demanding schedules, competing priorities, and a never ending list of to-do’s which have made stress and burnout common elements in our lives.

Increasingly more organizations and businesses are turning to resilience training to help their employees manage stress, navigate successfully through change, and overcome obstacles and setbacks that cost the company money.

You might be asking, what is Resilience?
Resilience is a skill that can be learned and strengthened, just like any other muscle in your body. We all have built up complex highways to worry and stress, but we only have a dirt road to happiness. I’m sure you’ve realized that life keeps giving us a lot of challenges to practice on.
Resilience is the ability to successfully navigate through challenges, rise above change, and triumph over adversity in our lives. It's our ability to bounce back from the stress that life brings us.
It's not about avoiding stress, but learning how to thrive with the stress, and building effective coping skills that we can use to deal with stressful situations and challenges in life. It's about how quickly we recover from failure and bounce back.
A lot of people stop believing, because of stress and failure. If you’re constantly reminding yourself of every set back, every defeat, every time like knocks you down, remember to look up. Because if you can look up, you can pick yourself up. Success is measured by how quickly you pick yourself up, after failing.
It’s doesn’t matter how many times you fail and it doesn’t matter how many times people tell you that you can’t do something. What does matter, is how fast you can bounce back.
Resilience is your internal fire, it’s the powerful bounce back forces within you. It’s the ability to still see your dreams, through challenges. It’s about continuously searching for ways to make it happen.
We are all creatures of habit and our brains are always looking for shortcuts to creating habits, so it doesn’t have to work as hard. In order to become more resilient, you need to change the way you are thinking and eliminate the self-limiting beliefs that you are convinced you won’t be able to break through.
You can’t be fearful and powerful at the same time. You can’t be angry and powerful, simultaneously either. Fear and anger are the two emotions that mess people up the most. Our beliefs drive our behaviors and beliefs can be changed.
Resilience is not a personality trait but rather a set of skills and habits that can be developed and built up. There are also certain skills, behaviors and attitudes that can be learned, to increase your resilience.
For example, research shows us a direct link between job satisfaction and the amount of praise managers express to their employees.
Neuroscience proves that people enjoy the surge of "feel good hormones" (such as serotonin and dopamine)and these neurotransmitters help us to control our stress hormones (cortisol) which are part of our "flight, flight, freeze or faint" response.
Practicing daily brain training techniques to increase your mindful awareness, has been found to significantly impact and improve the part of our brain responsible for emotional regulation, memory and attention levels.
We upgrade our computers, install more ram, and the newest apps available to help us, to work most efficiently. It's even more important to upgrade your brain and mindset, to make sure that you controlling things in your life, rather than just going on auto pilot.
If you want to change things in your life, you need to make changes in your way of thinking.
The science of achievement through resilience training is proven repeatable and effective, while the art of fulfillment is subjective. There are a ton of amazing ways to build up your resilience, self- confidence, courage, and raw grit.
So, instead of feeling powerless, living in fear, letting worry, doubt and stress take over, feeling like a victim and just surviving, it’s time to upgrade and recharge the powerful bounce back forces in our own lives. Life is like an elevator… sometimes you go up and sometimes you go down. It’s time for you to decide that it’s time to get on with your life.
