Personal Resilience - A Way To Bounce Back From Setbacks

Is life throwing lemons at you that you cannot handle? Are things becoming too overwhelming? Are you unable to handle conflict?

If your answer to any one of these questions is yes you are in the right place. At Mediation services , we strive to make you a better version of yourself by helping you deal with conflict , anger and lots of other things.

Today, the topic of our discussion is building personal resilience. Have you ever wondered why some people are able to meet conflict and life’s demands with optimism and elasticity while others become stuck and overwhelmed?

This is due to their lack of personal resilience. If you belong to this category of individuals, there is no need to fret or feel discouraged. We are here to help you develop the skills and attitudes of resilient people, especially in the face of short-term, sustained and chronic stress.

Our Building Personal Resilience: Coping with Stress course is exactly what you are looking for.

Objective Of The Course

With this course we aim to help you develop certain skills using reflective and interactive exercises. This session will develop awareness, flexibility and personal strength to help you meet challenges at work and at home.

The learning objectives of this course include:

  • Increase one’s understanding of stress and resilience
  • Identify patterns of short-term, sustained and chronic stress
  • Develop skills and attitudes for managing stress
  • Deepen a sense of one’s own resilience

The Importance of Personal Resilience

Personal resilience is an individual’s ability to adapt and bounce back when things don’t go as planned. While some people are able to do this, others end up dwelling on their failures.

However, the proper way to go forward is by acknowledging the situation and learning from your mistakes. This gives you the strength needed to process and overcome hardship.

People who are resilient are able to tap into their strengths and support systems to overcome challenges and work through problems.

Elements Essential To Resilience

Personal resilience is not something that you can develop overnight. Rather it is a trait that can only be developed over time. Moreover, there are certain elements that are essential to Resilience. These include:


It is important that you view a challenge as something difficult, not something that is paralyzing.


Staying committed to your goals despite the failure that comes your way. This includes a commitment to relationships, friendships, and the causes you care about.

Personal Control

Spending time and energy focusing on situations and events that you have control over rather than fretting about something that is out of your control is important.


Understand what is temporary and what is permanent. Don’t consider temporary elements of life as permanent features.


Don’t let setbacks or bad events affect other unrelated areas of your life.


Don’t blame yourself for events that have happened. Realize that some stuff is out of your control.

How To Build Resilience

Even if you are not a resilient person naturally, there are things that you can do and traits that you can develop to become resilient. Some tips for becoming a resilient person are:

  • Take care of your physical and mental health to cope with challenges in a better way.
  • Be practical when it comes to setting goals.
  • Don’t let negative thoughts derail your efforts.
  • Change and alter the way you think about negative situations and bad events.
  • Don’t let your mistakes discourage you, rather learn from them and think about what could have been done differently.
  • Change the way you respond to certain situations. Everyone has their bad days, however, your response to them is what shapes your perspective and personality.
  • Be confident in your own skin and believe in your abilities.
  • Develop strong connections at your workplace and in your private life.
