Change and Resilience
"The only consistent thing in life is change. We cannot avoid it, some of us fight it, and a few struggle to accept it."
Most of us are aware of this proverb. Yet, when the time comes, we find that the proverb—while educational—doesn't offer a solution for what to do when change hits us.
The answer to this question can be summed up in one word—resilience.
CHANGES IMPACT YOUR PSYCHOLOGICAL STATE
Whether you are ready for it or not, changes happen. Whether it is a career change caused by your company going out of business or a personal change caused by the death of a loved one—changes are inevitable in life.
More often than not, these changes have an adverse effect on you, creating stress that can lead to confusion and even depression.
Consequently, your ability to manage these changes and stay on the course to professional and personal happiness is affected.
This is where this course comes in.
A WAY TO BOUNCE BACK FROM ADVERSITY
In order to move forward in life, you need to learn how to bounce back from changes rather than try to control them. Becoming resilient can help you get through difficult circumstances, empowers you to grow, and improve your life on a front you might have thought unimaginable.
Some people feel threatened by change and respond with fear to avoid change. Others see change as a challenge and creatively look for ways to turn that change into an opportunity. The way you respond to change determines your ability to beat the odds and move forward in life.
Being resilient does not mean that you will not experience difficulty or distress—it's all about what to do once you are in the middle of the chaos.
THE ROAD TO RESILIENCE
Resilience involves behaviours, thoughts, and actions that you can learn and develop over time. Adding things to your personality that will make you more logical and prepared to take on the psychological challenges brought on by changes, the road to resilience is likely to involve considerable emotional distress.
