Having a positive view of yourself is an important mindset that helps you improve your performance, achievements and quality of life. It is not about smiling and denying the negative aspects of reality. It is an effective approach that improves your state of mind, leading to improved thought patterns, more options and will make a real difference in your life.
Having a positive attitude is also a choice that can be learned.
RESILIENCE is the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or even significant sources of stress – such as family and other relationship problems, serious health problems or workplace and financial stressors.
EXAMPLE OF RESILIENCE:
A Cenac Captain recently lost his home due to flooding. By maintaining a positive mindset and approaching the situation with resolve verses surrendering to the challenges and tragedy he and his family were faced with, he was able to manage his stress levels, keep his family together and maintain his quality of work on the job as he adapted to and overcame the unfortunate circumstances.

We all have a unique opportunity to make personal choices and to take accountability for the way in which we react to adverse situations. However in order to perform our best in challenging situations you need to have an awareness of how we respond to adversity and the skills in self-management which will support a positive outcome.
Building RESILIENCE not only benefits your work environment but also benefits your life outside of work and can positively influence all aspects of your life including family and friends.
