People who are self-aware take accountability for dealing with transitions and recognize they cannot change or blame others when experiencing shifts. It involves a high level of self-awareness around personal values, emotions, thoughts, personal strengths, and development areas.  Resilient people use this insight to effectively manage themselves and their relationships with others. They focus on what they can control instead of spending energy and time on things outside their sphere of influence. Upload Resiliency resource now

Title: Five secrets to resilience

Website:  Link to Resource


This past Monday, I received some professional news that put me in a state of tears, failure, shock, and disappointment. It was the lowest that I’d been for almost a year. The experience itself felt devastating, and its effects were compounded by the overall anxiety of coronavirus and week 4 of shelter-in-place. Through this week, I’ve been experiencing all the emotions— shame, anger, grief, resentment, hurt and also freedom, compassion, love, support, confidence, and curiosity.

I’m definitely still in it and will continue to experience the cycles of grief throughout the coming weeks. At the same time, I’m sharing five secrets of resilience that have been fueling me through the week.

They are able to reach out to their network to seek help, problem solve, and share ideas as needed. They participate in activities with others to let off steam and unwind.

They tolerate ambiguity and uncertainty and adapt quickly to new developments. They are able to easily and smoothly regroup, rethink, and redefine next steps when unexpected change comes their way.

Title: Emotionally Resilient Living

Website:  Link to Resource


While the challenges associated with living through the COVID-19 pandemic have inspired recent articles, the guiding principles throughout Emotionally Resilient Living are based on the reality that life is filled with trials, each with its own potential and purpose, heartache, and joy.

Resilience isn't an umbrella to be reserved for a rainy day, and you don't need to be facing a major life change or hardship to decide that you're ready to grow stronger and more confident. Building your capacity for resilience is as much about prevention and growth as it is recovery.

The concept of Resilient Living represents a dynamic lifestyle choice to embrace the power within you to create the quality and course of your life journey.


People who are self-assured have a high level of self-confidence. People with self-assurance and self-esteem have a healthy self-concept, know how to maximize their strengths and minimize their development areas. They also understand that while the world is complex and challenging, they have the capacity to learn from the opportunity and to succeed despite the challenges. They tend to be optimistic and trust their abilities to deal with difficult situations. Upload Resiliency resource now


Resilient people are able to create structures and methods to bring order and stability to changing situations. People who show this strength focus daily on what needs to be accomplished and set realistic goals for themselves. They have the capacity to break down goals into manageable tasks to accomplish within a concrete timeline. They are able to prioritize tasks and usually follow some sort of “to do” list.

Problem solving entails having a creative curiosity. Resilient people ask many questions and want to understand how things work. They have the ability to analyze and break apart complex problems and identify the root cause of a problem in order to create lasting solutions. They feel able to effectively solve most problems. They view problems from a systems perspective by recognizing the relationship of a problem to other interdependent issues. Upload Resiliency resource now


Resilient people proactively engage change and take focused, meaningful action. They tend to concentrate their efforts on what is within their control in an attempt to shape the situation according to their vision. They are assertive and believe they are responsible for being the masters of their own destiny versus blaming others for their situation. Upload Resiliency resource now
