Practice Resilience

Challenges are inevitable! Surviving through a challenge requires patience and the mind goes through a lot.

Very few people take into consideration their recovering state after being hit by a challenge or a disappointment or a failure. Unwanted characters can surface like fear not to try new things again and unnecessary angers.

Resilience can be taught and it is needed for youth to understand the need to move out of comfort zone and be confident to face challenges.

According to Psychology Today, Resilience is that ineffable quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back at least as strong as before. Rather than letting difficulties or failure overcome them and drain their resolve, they find a way to rise.”

Two major things to consider:

  • Be ready to face any challenges.
  • Know that no condition is permanent.

When you prepare for what is coming and also know that it would pass, you would build a resilient mindset gradually. Failure is just a means of getting feedback needed to try again and not to stay in a position.

Also, have the mindset that to move forward, you need to solve a challenge; see it like solving a puzzle.

The key factor is, when you are knocked down, know that it is temporary and an opportunity to try again and be better. Do not stay down

Young people should be taught and encouraged to put in work and not quit or fear trying again when they pass through difficult situations.

Build your mindset to be more resilient to survive the aftermath of any difficult situation.

#MentalEducation is a project by ImeyReach Foundation to teach youth the necessary skills needed to become a better person for themselves and their community.
