Resilience is one of the basic ingredients for Happiness & Success. Adversity is a fact of life. How well you respond to adversity – how resilient you are and how fast you bounce back after a failure, a setback, or disappointment – will determine your satisfaction to a large extent. Resilience is the difference between facing your problems bravely and confidently, and feeling helpless and like you can’t move.

  1. Work on your mental flexibility
  2. Looks for ways to derive meaning from adversity
  3. Avoid thinking traps
  4. Look for a role model
  5. Practice realistic optimism
  6. Visualize a positive outcome
  7. Adapt a strength perspective
  8. Build up your immunity to stress
  9. Be Connected
  10. Practice Mindfulness and Meditation

Mindfulness is a tool to replenish the self and maintain perspective. Meditation teaches us to simply observe our thoughts, rather than judge them. Meditation and mindfulness cultivate an inner self-knowledge, self-nurturing, and peace which acts as a buffer from external pressure. Having this buffer makes us more resilient.
