You have a set of change muscles that help you navigate challenges. Each of these is a way of thinking about or approaching adversity that helps you achieve more effective outcomes. At My Resilience Gym, we focus on helping you develop seven muscles:
Positivity The first muscle is your ability to interpret situations in a way that offers hope and possibility. This muscle is part of your “core.” It is an important foundation for the rest.
Confidence The second muscle is your ability to recognize the value you can bring to a challenging situation.
Priorities The third muscle is your ability to identify the most important things to pay attention to as you face challenges.
Creativity The fourth muscle is your ability to generate a range of possibilities and options for dealing with a challenge.
Connection The fifth muscle is your ability to reach out to others for help or support in facing challenges.
Structure The sixth muscle is your ability to create and apply structure when facing challenges.
Risk-taking The seventh muscle is your ability to get out of your comfort zone and try new ways of operating when facing challenges.
