Are you resilient ? In every single aspect of life including romance, work, and family, there are setbacks and disappointments which range from minor inconveniences to catastrophic losses. We’ve all been there. Loss of a job, death of a spouse or other family member, divorce, illness, traumatic injury. We can’t possibly explain the conundrum of “why,” but Life Coach Jenn A. Nocera will discuss what it means to be resilient in a difficult world and how we can cultivate some of the traits needed for a lifetime of resourcefulness.

Resilience is the quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever. Rather than letting failure overcome them and drain their resolve, they manage to find a way to rise from the ashes stronger than ever. Psychologists have identified some factors that make a person resilient such as a positive attitude, optimism, the ability to regulate emotions, and the ability to see failure as a form of helpful feedback. Even after a misfortune, blessed with such an outlook, resilient people are able to change course and soldier on. They know how to mourn the inevitable losses in life, and they also know how to let go of things they have no control over. Resilient people are survivors – not victims. Think of Oprah Winfrey, Christopher Reeves, Anne Frank, and Helen Keller to name a few famous survivors. You probably can name some people from your own family who have not allowed loss overtake them. Are you one of the resilient ones?
