FACTS FOR FAMILIES: Building personal resiliency | Health, Medicine and Fitness

When faced with adversity, resilient people:

• Are able to reframe the situation and view difficulties as challenges and opportunities for growth. They view crisis as an opportunity to grow stronger and wiser and they view challenges as manageable and NOT permanent. We WILL get through this!

• Learn from the mistakes and failures they have – but they don’t see them as failures. They see them as important lessons and try to learn from them.

• Have confidence in themselves and this belief in themselves enables them to take risks. Think about the “famous failures” you may have heard of – Thomas Edison, Stephen King, Bill Gates, Abraham Lincoln, Oprah Winfrey, and Walt Disney. They all had experienced professional and sometimes personal obstacles and had “failed” a few times before becoming successful. Nevertheless, they could attribute their success to self-confidence and resiliency.

• Have initiative and assertiveness – they know they can’t control the events in their lives from happening, but they can control how they perceive them and how to respond.

• Address the reality of the situation and deal directly with the problem and what they actually have control over. They have what author Diane Coutu calls “realistic positivism” – they see the situation as it is while staying positive about the ability to cope and conquer.
