Mental toughness and resilience enable people to bounce back from life’s worst surprises or uncertainties. Mentally tough (or resilient) people seem to simply take everything that life throws at them in their stride.
Counselling that focus on mental toughness and resilience helps guide and enable clients to handle challenges and diversity constructively through teaching or honing appropriate life skills.
Mental toughness is the ability to keep your determination and focus in spite of the difficulties that you might experience.
Essentially there are 4 components of mental toughness:
Extent to which you think you are in control of your circumstances.
Extent to which you set goals and do whatever it takes to achieve your goals.
Extent to which you see the world full of opportunities as well as threats and stretch yourself accepting risk, learning from success as well as failure.
Extent to which you believe in your abilities and using these abilities.
Control and commitment form the basis of resilience (the ability to persevere in spite of setbacks and difficulties). To be mentally tough, one also needs to learn how to let challenges bring positivity instead of anxiety, and to develop confidence in the face of uncertainty. In this world everyone experiences setbacks, change and challenges more quickly than ever before. Adapting to life’s ups and downs is part of the process of personal development, part of the journey through life – adopting a positive mindset is important.
