“More than education, more than experience, more than training, a persons’ level of resilience will determine who succeeds and who fails. That is true in the cancer ward, its true in the Olympics, and its true in the boardroom.” Victor Frankl
At AnExaminedLife we are aware that life requires you to build a toolkit so you can approach the adventures, challenges and sometimes ravages that may be encountered along your journey. We skilled enough to empower you to build Resilience as part of that toolkit. What is Resilience?
Resilience is the ability to overcome obstacles, using so called negative experiences by channelling them into a positive and not allowing difficult experiences to define your whole existence.
Resilient individuals see Stressors as potential opportunities for change, and undesirable events in terms of possibility rather than threat. They tend to have a more realistic view of the world. Mostly they believe that if life gives you lemons you make lemonade. Resilience has the following characteristics: a staunch acceptance of reality, a deep belief that life is meaningful. Resilient people also have an uncanny ability to improvise.
We help you work on the following characteristics: internal locus of control, adaptive behaviours, finding and making meaning, regulating your attention and so much more. It is intense work but with equally intense rewards if you are available to giving yourself permission to experience it.
