Mental Strength – nurture resilience with a growth mindset
Sensible management of painful experiences leads to personal growth. Resiliency is growing through challenge or opportunity so you end up wiser and stronger. Resilient people expect challenges to arise at different times throughout their life. By remaining flexible, they develop the ability to confront and surmount obstacles, adjust their goals, and learn to thrive again.
We will explore
Many people often take a militaristic, 'gritty' approach to resilience. We imagine a Marine toiling through the mud, Rocky Balboa getting off the canvas to go one more round, or a rugby player picking himself up off the turf with a broken nose for one more scrum. We believe that the longer we can endure hardship and pain, the more resilient we become, and therefore the more successful we will be. In reality, this conception is scientifically flawed as it ignores the role of resilience in performing consistently under pressure.
Key topics include:
- Adversity will help you decide what you honestly believe
- Overwork and exhaustion are the opposite of resilience
- Resiliency means managing your energy so that you have the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual hardiness to get up and move forward
