Resilience in Times of Difficulty

Resilience is that inner strength that enables someone to get back up after they’ve been knocked down. Resilient people are able to put on a smile on their face even though their world may be falling apart.

Obstructions and declines are expected on the long road to your goal. Resilience is necessary to help over come these kind of temporary problems and put you back on track to achieving your goals. Stay focussed on what’s important and remember to keep moving forward.

How resilient you are depends on your mental approach to problems and crises. When we are presented with a setback in life, how we interpret the situation is very important. Are we the kind of people to obsess over the past and get bogged down in our mistakes? Or are we the kind of people who can move on from misfortune and use bad luck as a chance to do better next time?

What makes some people resilient to the changing tides of life while others find it hard to keep afloat? Psychologists agree that some people are born with a higher degree of resilience but also say that resilience is a trait that can be learned.

So how do you do it?

Here are 5 ways to help keep your resilience during the hard times. These little tips will help keep you focussed, enhance your outlook on life and give you a great mindset for taking on problems.
