Springing back from adversity: Resilience


To be mentally tough is to resist the urge to give up in the face of failure, to maintain focus and determination in pursuit of your UMAT goals, and to emerge from adversity even stronger than before. Everyone can benefit from strengthening their resilience skills. 

Mental toughness comes from thinking like an optimist. People who don’t give up have a habit of interpreting setbacks as temporary, local and changeable. When in the face of adversity, try to say to yourself, “It’s going away quickly; it’s just this one situation, and I can do something about it.” Analyze your beliefs and emotions about failure. Try to avoid describing failure as permanent, pervasive and out of your control — this can affect your resilience.

Resist “catastrophic thinking", the tendency to assume the worst. Learn to fight back negative thoughts, challenge their accuracy and search for a more positive spin. However, at the same time make sure to reflect and act on genuine concerns and problems. 

Keep in mind gratitude and generosity. Learn to “hunt for the good stuff”— look for and appreciate how fortunate you already are. It is important to focus on building personal strengths and fostering positive relationships. 

Resilience won’t deal with every issue in the UMAT, but it can give you’re a good understanding of how to toughen your mind in the face of difficult questions.
