We all have been there…difficult times. Sometimes these adversities come in waves. Sometimes they come out of nowhere…and facing the challenge can change our lives or even our beliefs.
While many of these situations come in different colors for each of us, so do our reactions. What one person sees as negative, someone else could see as positive like the loss of a job. The one unifying factor though is the flood of emotions and sense of uncertainty.
And the unifying way most of us can tackle these emotions and uncertainty is by developing resilience.
Luckily, resilience isn’t in innate trait. It’s something you can foster, so here are 3 simple strategies to help you bounce back from anything:
- Focus on your relationships. There are many studies that show how strong, supportive relationships are one of the primary factors in resilience. Whether it’s family, friends, colleagues, or support groups, having that network of encouragement, support, love and trust is a key factor to the ability to overcome adversity.
- “Of course there is no formula for success except, perhaps, an unconditional acceptance of life and what it brings.” ~Arthur Rubinstein
- When change occurs, especially if it is painful, it’s natural to wish that it hadn’t occurred at all. But once it’s there, continuing to fight the change only keeps you stuck in difficult emotions and a hard place. Instead, simply try to acknowledge that the change is hard, painful and unwanted. Then, when you are ready, ask yourself how you want to live and what type of person you want to be as you go forward.
- Remember your strength. By asking yourself how you’ve dealt with adversity in the past, you can recall what ways you were strong. You can recall your strengths. Are you optimistic? Are you a apt decision maker? Are you persistent? Using these strengths to your advantage will surely help you bounce back.
It’s not easy but know that you can rise, you can overcome and continue on with these strategies…and with helpful tools.
One of these amazing tools is the eBook, “Bounce Back BIG”, where author Sonia Ricotti actually guides you through how to overcome any and all challenges life may throw at you, so you can quickly and easily bounce back bigger and brighter than ever before.
