What is Resilience?

How many times have you been stuck in negative thinking? In an awful emotion?  

How many times, in the midst of that experience, have you known there was a better way to think —  a better way to feel — but you just didn’t know how to get there?

How many times have you said “I know I shouldn’t be thinking this way, but I just don’t know how to stop”?

There are those times when you already know you need to change your outlook but don’t have a map to get there.

What if you could choose HOW you look at a situation? How to think, feel, or  react to it? Having that power to choose, in the heat of the moment, is being resilient.

Resource Method is all about giving you the skills you need to be fully resilient.  Giving you the power to move through old obstacles on the way to well-being and to develop deep and effective self-care that actually works. And giving you the confidence to actively create your own life.

You can’t just decide to be resilient. While making the decision is a great first step, you need the understanding, training, tools, and practice to get you all the way there.

We’ve identified the key understandings, skills and tools you need to become your most resilient self. And we’ve encapsulated them into Resource Method. In our trainings we teach you, train you, and coach you in cultivating the best version of you.

Below we have listed key knowledge sets, perspectives and skills of the most resilient people. We encourage you to run through the list and ask yourself how many these skills you feel like you are good at.

Resilient people have:

  • Understanding of How Your Mind and Emotions Work – Having a working, on the ground understanding of how the mind and the emotions work together is fundamental to self-mastery and resilience.
  • Emotional Control – Being able to step back and get perspective in the midst of experiencing an emotion.
  • Radical Self-Honesty – Being willing to fearlessly look at the truth of why a feeling has arisen.
  • Deep Self-Curiosity – A desire to know one’s self fully and deeply.
  • Unconditional Self-Love – A true desire to take care of one’s self and develop the best life possible for one’s self.
  • Skill of Reframing – Being able to, in any situation, quickly choose a new, more empowering perspective.
  • Understanding of Cause and Effect – Being able to track the actual cause behind events and the behaviours of others (empathy), freeing one’s self from the burden of over-personalizing.
  • A Concept of Self that is Rooted in Consciousness – A perspective that the self exists as consciousness, existing beyond the body and transcending the limitations of one’s basic material life.
  • Ability to Self-Regulate the Nervous System – Mastery of skills to calm one’s body and focus one’s mind at will.
  • Flexibility – Being able to transition quickly and smoothly between these emotional states and perspectives.
  • Mastery of Beliefs – Being able to identify core beliefs and being able to challenge and change them as appropriate.

Going down the list, how many do you feel like you’re good at?
