Resilience and a positive mindset
Resilience can be best described as the ability to bounce back from setbacks. It's also about giving things a go and trying things outside your comfort zone.
It can be hard to keep going when things get tough, but there are ways of getting through to help you succeed. In this section, you'll learn some techniques to help you:
- Stay positive and keep focused
- Cope when facing a tough challenge
- Make the most of your skills
- Stay confident
We've come up with some hints and tips that will help you to develop your resilience, react more positively to challenges, and achieve what you set out to do.
Positive thoughts lead to a positive attitude and results. Positive people find a silver lining and try to see the potential in every challenge.
Make sure you plan ahead, think clearly about what you want to achieve and break tasks down into smaller, more manageable chunks.
We can't always stop change, so see it as an opportunity to try something new, not a roadblock on progress.
Think about situations you've been in, remember your thoughts and feelings at the time and think about how you could have reacted more positively.
Come up with a list of ways to solve a problem and team up with friends, family, and teachers to decide on the best one. That way you're learning together.
It won't help you to worry; take a step back or sometime away from the problem. When you come back to it things will seem clearer.
Make the most of your knowledge, skills, and personal qualities. Keep building on them and continue to think about what you've learnt.
