The Science of Resilience

We all need to understand resilience because we all experience loss, setbacks, and change that rocks our world.  No one is immune from this.

Yet science reveals so key insights that anyone can learn to be more resilient.

For example, each positive thought creates momentum that helps to move us out of emotional ditches.  A habit of positive emotions move us in the direction of our focus.

They also share the power of honest awareness.  Intense emotions loose their power to the extent that we honestly acknowledge them for what they are.  Then begin to shift our focus to what we want.  We don’t avoid the pain in a Pollyanna lifestyle, but take the winds out of its sails by looking at it, understanding it, then shifting our focus to a desirable point on the horizon that stirs our heart.

This is long but if resilience is on your radar screen for growth, this is worth the listen.  It was made by the University of California.
