7 insights to help you grow your personal resilence
When it comes to being victorious over the most complex circumstances, a positive mindset always works best. We now focus more about our mental well-being and that’s not just because more people are suffering from stress, anxiety and depression but because we are finally recognising its vital role when it comes one’s performance and engagement with other people, our work and one’s life in general.
To recognise the importance of mental wellbeing and resilience we can refer to the conclusions from several physiological studies (Beyond Trauma and Resilience, George A. Bonanno, 2006) as well as some of the first ones some 40 years ago (Garmezy, 1974).
These studies looked at why some individuals reacted differently when faced with challenging life events, why some people could experience post traumatic growth while others suffered for a long time.
Most of the studies came to the conclusion that being resilient played a key part in the process.
The above quote can be true to some extend but each person is different and resilience is something that certainly can be strengthened with time and personal efforts.
