Rubber Not Glue: Awakening The Resilience Within You

Standley Ballroom

Resilience is defined as the capacity to recover quickly from difficult situations. How much of it you have will dictate how you respond to the inevitable challenges of life that are thrown your way. Will you sink, or will you swim? Will negative experiences stick to you and drag you down, or do they roll off you like water off a duck’s back?

We all want to be more resilient, but if we are already run down, not confident, afraid, or ready to throw in the towel, how does one develop this magical skill?

In this session, attendees will learn from the speaker’s personal journey of learning how to flow through adversity, learn the lessons, develop a resilient, courageous, and compassion spirit, and bounce forward into success!

Learning objectives:

Learn what resilience is and why it is so important.
Learn how the human mind can be conditioned to suffer. Introduce the mindful technique of being present, learn how to recognize unproductive mental and emotional habits, including the inner critic, and, introduce the beginning concepts of how to rewire your brain to cultivate more supportive neural pathways, thoughts, and emotional responses.

Happiness and success are largely determined by how we choose to respond to events whether they be good or bad. Life can present hard lessons, but resilience can help us transform hardship into opportunity and not only lift ourselves but be an inspiration to others.
