The Components Of A Resilience Mindset
To build a high degree of resilience you will probably have to make some changes to your current mindset. You must adopt a new mindset where you will embrace change and keep on going when things around you are in chaos.
In this article we will explain the components that you need to create a resilience mindset. When you can adopt these things there will be no stopping you. It will take time for you to change your current mindset so you need to be persistent.
Do things outside of your Comfort Zone
You will not develop your resilience doing things that you are already comfortable with. Instead, you need to do things that are outside of your comfort zone. By taking on things that you have never done before you will send a message to your subconscious mind that you are determined to build your resilience.
Decide what your Response will be
This is all about deciding on the response that you need to deal with a setback that has the potential to overwhelm you. If a challenge overwhelmed you in the past and made you give up, what kind of challenge was it and what would have been the best response?
You need to send the right message to your subconscious that you are not prepared to give up any more when the going gets tough. Having the right responses in mind for different challenges will help you to deal with them more effectively.
Someone else did it before you
This is an excellent addition to your current mindset. Other people are very likely to have faced the problem that you are currently dealing with and they found a way around it and bounced back. If you start to feel overwhelmed by a problem then this will help you to remain calm knowing that there is a solution.
You will be empathizing with others that had high levels of resilience and did not give up when they had to tackle the same setback. Remembering this will help you to think more clearly and find a solution to the problem.
You are not a Victim
People with low levels of resilience often play the victim card. They believe that life is against them and they never get a break. These people do not believe that they have any control over their life and you need to condition your subconscious to accept that you are in control and are never a victim.
Make a mindset change to confirm that you are in control of your life and that you take full responsibility. This will help you to focus on the things that you can control and forget about things that you can’t. In addition, it will prevent you for looking for someone else to blame.
Replace bad habits with good ones
Giving up when you face a tough problem is a bad habit. You want to commit to replacing this bad habit with a new empowering one that will provide you with the power to solve any problem and move forward with your life.
Things like mindfulness meditation and regular exercise are good habits to adopt when you want to develop a resilience mindset. Practicing techniques to improve your resilience each day is also a good habit to adopt.
