Being connected to others can give us a feeling of being in a relationship that can provide support. This may also mean caring for and about others, is a primary factor in resilience.
Having a number of these relationships, both within and outside of the family, that offer love, encouragement and reassurance that re-enforces our foundation and to develop new friendships.
Being able to see what is, rather than what you would like is a part of taking personal responsibility. Being proactive rather than reactive, assertive rather than aggressive or passive are all components of this creating a plan for positive outcomes.
Being able to communicate well with others and problem-solve both individually includes effective listening and working with others with common interest or new interest inside and outside your community.
This includes communicating in writing, and if you need support, ask for it.
Being able to take action without being impulsive and responding out of emotion might mean, putting our emotions to the side when clear thinking and action are required. Being able to use clear thinking as a way of managing one's emotions is a key component of accentuating your passion.
Having a positive self-image is critical if a person is to be able to confront and manage fear and anxiety in his/her life.
Since we now know that living with any issue that might be life threatening can effect every area of our life, having a measure of self-confidence can be preventive medicine.
People are less likely to blame themselves or someone else for the hard times or their situation when they have support and are Optimistic.
Optimism can sometimes be taught through modeling. When “We” are optimistic, avoiding blaming and shaming then it assist those we serve to be more accountable without the emotional dose of blame.
When possible, see good and bad events occurring in life as being temporary rather than permanent. This, too, will pass. Events might appear to be having a specific impact on certain areas of life rather than having a pervasive impact on their entire life or future.
We must remember “WE” are not always “Stakeholder but “Shareholder”.
At the end of the day “we are serving the same person”.
Being able to take care of yourself by having a good diet, exercise, financial "health,” can be beneficial to anyone's whole health.
First responders and health care professionals are often major offenders in this area. We often assume that the rules do not apply to us, but they do,, so we must make sure we continue to heal the healer and the support we need.
Being able to find purpose and meaning makes sense out of what is happening and to find meaning in it. It is critical if we are to be able to manage the feelings that are aroused in a crisis. Remember when people are in crisis, its not a teaching moment.
Comfort first, teach later
Spiritual and religious practices are often a component of this factor, because it assist us in acting on our values.
Being able to care for others physically and emotionally is as important as cutting-edge medicine. Occupations and volunteer activities build resilience, and this can be volunteering in a food bank, reading mail, running errands, intentional support or just listening.
