Two Best Coping Mechanism: Resilience & Gratitude

How do you remain optimistic at work amid crippling uncertainty? Research shows that resilience mixed with gratitude are the two best coping mechanisms that help us cope with life’s many detours and varying challenges.

Many of us are not conscious of our roles and how it impacts where we work.

Dealing with change at the workplace in the face of any form of restructuring can mean uncertainty and pessimism. And neither of which is suitable for anyone’s productivity and stress level.

Much of the anxiety that comes from uncertainty is about the “what if? What if I get a new boss? What if I get the promotion?

Here’s my takeaway- Don’t let the anxiety of what might happen paralyze and prevent you from doing your best with what is happening now. Difficulties and uncertainties are part of life. We can’t escape it but we can learn to overcome them with resilience and gratitude.

 

Resillience
Resilience mixed with gratitude in the face of any change in the workplace is vital.

Resilience mixed with gratitude in the face of any change in the workplace is vital. Learn to maximize your positions and see the entire perspective, the purpose, and the impact you make, irrespective of how little it may appear to be.

Choose to be grateful for your job every day, even though the job may not be what you need it to be. Don’t forget that there are still millions of people out of work, and, would love to trade places with you.

It’s easy to get frustrated and forget how to live. Gratitude changes our perspective and helps us appreciate the good rather than taking what we have for granted.

What are you grateful for today?

Blessings and Love ❤️

  • This morning I am grateful for the BLUE sky above and for your helpful blog post. I would expand the scope of your vision beyond the workplace, however, to include everything happening on planet earth right now — wars, pollution, famine, climate change, political gridlock when we need bold, inspiring leadership, etc. These larger issues are the things that can drag me down… in addition to more personal things like changes at work. I truly appreciate your reminder that we cannot let “the anxiety of what might happen paralyze and prevent (us) from doing (our) best with what is happening now. Difficulties and uncertainties are part of life. We can’t escape (them) but we can learn to overcome them with resilience and gratitude….Learn to maximize your positions and see the entire perspective, the purpose, and the impact you make, irrespective of how little it may appear to be…” THANK YOU!

    • Oh, Will, you have a beautiful soul irrespective of what happens to you and around you. You are an inspiration.
      Yes, I had the notion of relating it to all aspects of life but then had to focus it on the workplace.

      I will be more elaborate next time. Your support over the years means a lot.
      Thank you for your comments and for resonating with the post. ❤
