Mindset and the Neuroscience of Resilience
Some people seem to deal with whatever is thrown at them. Deadlines, back-to-back meetings, long hours, presentations, staff issues, even family demands. They take it all in their stride.
Old-school thinking has led us to believe that these lucky people are born with the ability to deal with stress - while the rest of us struggle to cope with life’s constant demands. For some, stress is just too overwhelming.

Breaking news:
The latest neuroscience and positive psychology research shows that learning to handle stress and develop an optimistic outlook is within everyone’s grasp because we all have the power to literally re-wire our brain!

The science of optimism and achievement and how it affects you!
Just as the brain enables us to learn a musical instrument or a new sport, it can also become hardwired to respond automatically to negative stimuli.

One example is stress! This ‘automatic’ thought process prevents us from actively seeking other solutions to dealing with life’s many problems. Phrases such as ‘There’s no such thing as an easy job’, ‘Just when you think everything is going OK’ and ‘Why do I always get the bad luck’ are all
examples of this.

The destructive power of pessimism…
The results of stress and pessimistic outlook on the human body are well documented. Impaired immunity, increased risk of major illnesses such as heart disease and cancer; stress literally kills brain cells. These physical effects are in addition to the impact stress has on our working and personal relationships and quality of life.

It’s time to switch mindset
In contrast, research shows that people with an optimistic outlook and resilience strategies are more productive, healthier and even live longer than pessimists. We call this a ‘growth’ mindset. Importantly, with the right training, it is entirely possible to switch even if you are currently buried deep within negativity.
