Change is inevitable. And, for many, it can result in depression, anxiety and stress that can feel insurmountable. How do some people respond to change and rebound while others suffer and get stuck?
One’s false beliefs, based on unconscious subjective past learning, can create resistance to change. You might keep trying the same thing, in the same way, and expect a different outcome. Obviously, that only causes more emotional distress and feelings of powerlessness.
In contrast, if you approach adversity with resiliency you can embrace the possibility for growth and change. On how to build resiliency, I highly recommend Al Siebert’s book, “The Resiliency Advantage” or visit his website at resiliencycenter.com.
