Resilience is the life skill you must have. It’s the capacity to bounce back from setbacks. It gives you the power to transform pain into wisdom and fear into courage. It just won’t let you crumble, no matter how hard life gets.

Life does not come with a roadmap. There are twists and turns to navigate. Roads that are rough and bumpy. You might experience traumatic events like the death of a loved one, a life-altering accident, a life-threatening illness, or financial ruin. The only way to survive any challenge life brings is to go through it.

Dodging it or ignoring it does not work. It will only cause you more stress and everything you don’t want.

So How Do You Go Through Challenges?

Let’s break it down, shall we?

  1. Be Proactive

Resilient people don't let problems fester and grow. They face their problems head-on. Instead of becoming overwhelmed by negative thoughts, focus on action.

2. Protect Your Downtime
