Resilience, Part II:
Are you resilient?
Last week we described Resilience as a spring-back factor. When you're resilient, you recover quickly from changes and apparent set-backs that come your way. Here's a checklist of questions to answer to see just how resilient you are. Answer honestly - after all, a part of being resilient is being able to tell and see the truth.
For each of the questions below, put an answer in the box reflecting whether this is true:
A = Always True of Me
S = Sometimes True of Me
N = Never or rarely True

Count up your responses (sorry, this form is not programmed to tally results, it merely saves you getting a pencil!).
How did you fare?
If you answered "always" to 25 or more of the items, you are highly resilient.
If you answered "always" or "sometimes" to 25 or more, you have the basis for resilience but need to pay attention to developing more resilience, so you can consistently count on it as a resource.
Next week: suggestions for developing greater resilience.
In the future: "Boundaries"
