As much as we hate to admit it, deep down we know that sooner or later life is going to confront us with change or difficulty of some kind. It is simply an unavoidable part of the wonderful package we call life! That’s why it’s a no-brainer that one of the most valuable traits we can build into our character is the ability to adapt and overcome when challenges hit. AKA: Resilience.
Life will always give you lemons, however you can always overcome!
Like we’ve already said, there’s no getting around the fact that in life, hardships will come. But we don’t have to let it catch us off guard! Remind yourself that ‘You may not be able to control the situation, but you are ALWAYS in control of you.’
Resilience gives space for gratitude.
This doesn’t mean denying there is difficulty, or pretending that nothing bothers you. Rather, it means acknowledging the challenges, but instead of allowing them to be the ONLY thing you focus on, looking for the positive opportunities too. Practising gratitude can be a great way to help build this into your mindset.
Resilience enables you to support others.
By practising resilience, you will not only be better prepared to face difficult situations yourself, you will be able to offer strength and support to those around you who may be struggling too!
