What is Resilience?
Resilience is your ability to adapt and bounce back when things don't go as planned.
You're resilient if you:
Don't dwell on failures
Learn from your mistakes
Bounce back from hard times
Adapt to change so you can move forwards
Consider how others feel in situations
Resilience is not:
A personality trait that only some people posses
A fixed trait that can’t be changed
About being the strongest
Perseverance or grit
All about you!
If you think you're pretty resilient, it doesn’t mean you will never experience difficulty or distress ever again.
Your resilience is likely to change over time.
What are you expecting to change in your life in the future? A new job, a promotion, new target, starting a family.
Whatever it might be, your resilience could be tested.

The 5 Components of High Resilience
This is when you view difficulty as a challenge and not a paralysing event. You don't see the mistakes you make as a negative reflection on your abilities or self-worth and any failures are lessons to be learnt and are opportunities for growth.
You are committed to your life goals and use them as a compelling reason to get out of bed every morning. Not just in regards to work, but relationships, friendships, causes you care about, and spiritual beliefs.
You rarely blame yourself when something bad occurs that wasn't your fault. You spend your time and energy focusing on events that you do have control over.
You are optimistic, you see the glass half full and not half empty. You view the effects of bad events as temporary rather than permanent. You have positive images of the future and envision brighter days ahead.
You don't let setbacks in one aspect of your life affect unrelated areas. Avoiding judgement over all aspects, you can keep it specific. You would say "I didn't do well at this" rather than "I'm not good at anything"
