Setbacks in life are challenging.
You try but sometimes fail to accomplish tasks or to gain what you desire.
You do everything you can, plan and practice and keep a good attitude and do all the right things… and yet… it doesn’t always work out.
When that happens, you need the superpower of mental resilience – the ability to bounce back after these setbacks and keep moving forward. It’s how you cope with adversity, stress, and difficult situations, while maintaining a positive outlook and a strong sense of well-being. Think of it as your mental armor that shields you from getting knocked down too hard and enables you to rise back up even stronger.💪🏽
Here are some characteristics of people with mental resilience – because it’s more than just being “strong” all the time!
