Have an Attitude? By All Means Let It Be A Resilient Attitude!
Resiliency: Summary Part One
In ecology, resilience is the animal’s ability to respond to trepidation or turbulences by resisting damage or recovering quickly. Resiliency is the ability to overcome challenges of all kinds–trauma, tragedy, etc. Pain, headache, traumas, are normal part of our lives. Once the situation manifests itself we have choices in the way we respond. Resilience is a pathway to adjust our emotions. And it does provide one of the best systems to deal with pain and suffering. The concern is we underuse this fantastic tool of the mind and spirit. In this article, I will provide a list of techniques we can all use to improve our Resilience. Read on, always speak with your doctor, and teach others!!
Systems to Begin Developing a Resilient Attitude
Have a Support Group: most people think of support groups as AA or a church for example. However, you can have a support group as small as two people. The reason you need a support group is, because you need encouragement, guidance, and individuals who can help you navigate decisions.
Traits of a Good Support Team
- There is Commitment to help and make the difference
- Leads towards the achievement of the solution or goal
- Thrives in a chaotic environments and deals with emotions and conflicts
- Provides support while embracing honesty and truth
- Seeks the constant improvement of the group
- Renews and is constantly seeking new ways to better the group
- Values every member while maintaining cohesiveness among the group
- Encourages positive contributions
- Promotes the spirit of encouragement, fellowship, and growth
- Embraces compassion
Learn to Embrace Change: in the simplest ways, change is a new way of doing something, make something anew, or to be unlike from before.
- Awareness: confront the “old” way because it is not working (think of a puzzle with a missing part).
- Desire for a Change: break the old way apart and see why it is not working. At times there is only one factor that needs change and not the whole (it is the missing part of the puzzle)
- Knowledge of the need for change: create a new way (see if it fits the puzzle)
- Ability to implement the new way: establish the new way (the puzzle is complete again.)
Learn to Embrace Transformation: in the simplest definition, transformation is the radical change of something or someone, think of the little duck which turns into swan or the frog into prince.
- It is purposely planned, addressed, and practiced
- It is attached to a failure to accomplish something and a goal in mind
Learn New Vocabulary:
- Prior learned vocabulary: the vocabulary you bring into the current experience from past experience
- Present vocabulary: the vocabulary that you are presently using. It combines past experiences and present circumstances.
- Future vocabulary: the vocabulary that needs to come in as to change your perspectives. This can include mathematical and computerized signs and shorter sentences.
Examples: depending on your situation apply the word which break the mold of pessimistic, failure or burdensome thinking into a new and a healthier perspective
Exercise using words above
|I have a disaster||I have a predicament||Predicament implies a search for solution; disaster carries finality|
|This is impossible||This is threatening||Threatening contains possibility; impossible carries lack off|
|This is useless||This is unprofitable||Useless goes into a trash can; unprofitable can be measure – solution|
|He is stupid||He is shortsighted||Stupid is negative; shortsighted brings in room for improvement|
|He is serious||He is thoughtful||Serious might undermine a social bridge while thoughtful creates one|
The objective of this exercise is to gear your mind and spirit to observe how vocabulary affects the methods and outcomes. Consequently watch your vocabulary and ensure that it is not undermining your power for Resiliency. Think of Resilience as a friend which needs positive staples to thrive in you.
“Think of your life as a masterful poem that you are creating. You want the best poem ever because it is about YOUR life. You will be careful to choose words full of harmony, grace, and compassion. This will help remove self-imposed barriers as you purposely stop playing the script of harmful situations from the past. This is a bridge to a positive approach to life’s stubborn concerns, and even when the rhymes of the poem receive a blow here and there, the calmness of your spirit shall prevail, giving the whole-being a clear perspective on what to do next.”
