Resilience

    I truly enjoyed the article titled "How Resilience Works".

    There was a sentence that truly stuck out for me:
    "The fact is, when we truly stare down reality, we prepare ourselves to act in ways that allow us to endure and survive extraordinary hardship. We train ourselves how to survive before the fact."

    This is so true. As humans, we brace for nearly everything by habit..
    However...a question came to me in reading this..


    Do you feel we are hardwired to be resilient? Or is it learned behavior?

    I think we learn to be resilient and become more resilient.  Unless we experience hardship, we may not know how resilient we are and adapt/ learn to be resilient as we face hardships.  Thank you.  ​

    Resilience is truly a learned skilled. As mentioned in the article, there are people who may be stuck on failures. They are at their new job trying to correct old mistakes or with a new spouse trying to right previous wrongs. Resilience is is tied directly to how you adapt to change, not hold on to it. I believe this is why people encourage you to fail fast. Get over it, innovate out of it, and focus on the goals.

    I'm going to play devils advocate here. I think resilience is hardwired - think of the fight or flight response. You either take the opportunity to learn and grow with the change (fight) or you don't (flight). We all have the ability to adapt but it's a choice to do it or not.

    This is fabulous food for thought. The fight or flight response is something I did not think of beforehand.
    Such good points!

    I think that people are both hardwired for resilience and that it is a learned behavior in the sense that people have to discover that they have it. I am one such person; 10 years ago I never thought that I would be where I am today and when I look back I notice how much I had to overcome mentally to push forward. No one taught me what resilience is; I had to figure it out on my own.
