Thank you so much for your support and interest in The Insight, by Sheba. I hope you enjoyed this week’s blogs about “Resilience”.
Next week’s topic will be “Personal Goals”.
Friday Review: Happy Reading!
I learn a lot about myself, my network of associates, friends and family when I research topics. There are two things that stood out the most for me this past week. First, I need to remember to ask someone how I can be resilient for them instead of immediately following my normal course (which is to give direction and take action). Second, I need to pay closer attention to my reactions as well as distinguish between thoughts and feelings so I better understand the direction my emotions take me.
What stood out the most for you this week?
- Resilience is the ability to adapt, be flexible, manage crisis or stressful situations, turn them into opportunities and retain strength of purpose.
- When we possess the ability to adapt, be flexible, manage crisis or stressful situations, turn them into opportunities and have strength of purpose our path is clear.
- The characteristics of resilient people are a combination of Internal Locus of Control, strong conflict resolution and problem solving skills, tenacity, networks of supportive people, optimism, a sense of humor about life, self-awareness and knowing when to ask for help.
- Resilience is the ability to understand your emotions, their meanings, and the relationships between them to manage, reason, and problem-solve on the basis of your conclusions.
- Being resilient for others is so much easier when you ask how to be resilient for them – listen, support, share ideas, suggest options and be patient.
The Positive Insight: Resilience can be cultivated and developed if it doesn’t come naturally. That’s a positive perspective. Make a list of the resilient characteristics that you want to improve on.
Have a wonderful weekend!
