Faced with pain, failure, loss, pandemic, and insecurity, all people have the inherent capacity to gather enough strength to continue with life, adapt to new situations, overcome, and grow. This is called resilience.
In a nutshell, resilience can be defined as is the remarkable ability of humans to adapt when faced with adversity, as well as the ability to “bounce back” from disappointment- failure- loss, feeling stronger, wiser, and more determined than ever.
Resilience is about experiencing all of the negative, difficult, and distressing events that life throws at you while staying on task, optimistic, and high-functioning.
Here are 5 coaching tools to enhance RESILIENCE:
1) Reframe your mindset from victim to survivor
“I CAN DO THIS”, “I AM GOING TO MAKE IT, NO MATTER WHAT”. Become accountable and use whatever resources you have at hand. Affirm that you’re strong and capable enough to face anything life throws at you.
2) Accessing & Sustaining Positivity
When you withdraw your attention from negativity (stop feeding it energy, but at the same time not struggling against it) and instead give your attention to positivity, it can start to naturally displace the negatives.
A resilient person can overcome the devastating feelings of the crisis without getting stuck in the cycle of desperation and negativity.
“Staying positive does not mean that things will turn out okay. Rather it is knowing that you will be okay no matter how things turn out.” – unknown
3) Stop and think to make rational decisions
In the midst of the crisis or an unforeseen event, it’s easy to be compulsive, have poor judgment, and make wrong decisions. Train yourself to stop, analyze, and then decide.
4) Have Faith
Trust that God, the Universe, or your own understanding of a Higher Power, will always conspire to contribute with you, and provide you with everything you need, in the hardest moments. Cultivate unbreakable faith.
5) Practice Affirmations
“I have the strength and courage to get through any situation.”
“I am flexible and can adapt when life doesn’t go according to plan”.
“I am Divinely protected. I am Divinely guided”
