Emotional Resilience
What is Emotional Resilience?
y y y Emotional resilience is the capability to perform consistently in a range of situations under pressure and to adapt behaviour appropriately. It is the capability to balance the needs of the situation and task with the needs and concerns of the individuals involved. The capability to retain focus on a course of action or need for results in the face of personal challenge or criticism.

Commonly, Emotional Resilience is considered to be a person s ability and desire to get up again after being knocked down. Can they take the knocks that life will give them. Useful quote for those who are in a state of self-pity : M. Scott Peck says Life is difficult . Who told this individual that it was meant to be easy?

Emotional Resilience is closely linke to personal motiv tion levels and foundational b li f systems. What motivates this individual? What do they believe for themselves and/or about others? Low levels of hi vin may be connected. Do they have a personal oal? Can they nvision a future when such obstacles have been overcome?

Impact of Emotional Resilience level
Very low Emotional Resilience can lead to a person giving up on themselves their career, even life. n acute cases it can lead to clinical depression. Usually this is when someone has genuinely faced very serious obstacles repeatedly and has been getting back up each time, now they simply feel they have run out of energy . Very high Emotional Resilience. Such individuals often have a desire and personal motivation far beyond their real capabilities most often these individuals have overcome a serious hardship (many are disabled) or gone through a very traumatic e perience and come through. hey have a zest for life beyond the normal. he potential danger is that this person does not know when giving up (not words they ever use together) is actually the more sensible option. An individual with a need for high levels of safety and security is unlikely to have high Emotional Resilience as well.
