Welcome to my course landing page. I'm pleased to say that most of my courses are highly rated and best sellers in their respective categories on Udemy. That's because I have many years of professional experience and I care about quality and thoroughly research to understand a topic before I create a course. Plus, I really care about you my students. I want you to have the best experience possible as you go through my courses. That said, let me introduce my masterclass on building resilience:
Life is hard. Although it’s harder for some than others, it’s hard, at least some of the time, for all of us. Many of us come from difficult backgrounds. Plus we all have our fair share of problems, stress, adversity, setbacks, loss, and even trauma in our lives today. Resilience is how we handle the hard things in our lives.
I define resilience as the process of adapting well to life’s hardships, adversity, loss, trauma, tragedy, and even everyday stresses. Resilience has to do with how we navigate our challenges, how we bounce back from hard events, and how we function at a high level in the midst of stress.
Face Stress and Challenges with Confidence
During this course, I give you practical tools and strategies to face your life with courage and confidence. I'll help you become a mentally and emotionally stronger person as you apply these strategies to your life. And, by the way, the strategies apply to both your personal and work life and I'll use examples of both as we go through the course.
Harness Your Inner Strength
People who possess resilience are able to harness their inner strength as well as outer resources to not only cope but even grow stronger in the face of hardship, trauma, adversity and stress. Those who lack resilience become overwhelmed in the face of hardship. The stressful events and circumstances of their lives outweigh their ability to cope, and they may become emotionally dysregulated, experience symptoms of anxiety or depression, succumb to physical illness, and sometimes engage in unhealthy addictive behaviors as coping mechanisms.
The Thunderstorms of Life
There’s an old African saying, “You know how well the roof has been built only when it rains.” Look at it this way. The thunderstorms of our lives present our greatest opportunities to develop those qualities that we consider most noble. Courage, humility, integrity, confidence, and compassion are forged not when life is easy but when we are challenged, when it is raining. So our objective should not be to shrink from adversity but rather learn wisdom and courage as we lean into our challenges.
Think of your life as traveling down a river on a raft. Sometimes the river is slow and meandering and you navigate it quite easily. But on other occasions you run into swift water, even rapids that test your navigation skills.
Resilience is your ability to safely navigate these rough waters. You’re not going to do it if you’re ill-prepared or if you lack knowledge, tools and equipment. I equip you with the know-how, tools, resources, and support to successfully navigate the challenging waters of your life so you can make it through as a more confident and courageous rafter. Not that your problems will have gone away. But your capacity to deal with them will have expanded to the point that you can handle whatever comes your way.
I've studied resilience in depth and personally coached thousands of people to manage stress and build resilience. In my studies, I've reduced resilience to four core themes or pillars. Much of the course is built around these pillars.
Pillar One: Honor Your Emotions. You’ll learn strategies and usable practices in emotional self-regulation so you can calm yourself and respond to stress in a more effective way.
Empower Your Thinking. You’ll learn a model and strategies to overcome self-defeating self-talk and adopt an empowering rather than defeatist mindset as you face your challenges.
Nourish Your Relationships. Nothing is more highly correlated with mental wellbeing than strong social relationships. You’ll explore lots of ways to grow and strengthen your relationships.
Enlarge Your Sense of Self. People who are resilient have a good knowledge of themselves, a sense of autonomy, trust their own authority and believe they can succeed. You will learn practices to strengthen these capacities within yourself so you can better withstand the stresses of your life.
