Resilience is a Mindset . . .

• Our mindsets or “mental models” directly influence and shape how we view the world.

• This in turn, influences how we respond (our behaviors) to adversity and stress.

• The strength of our resilience mindset and the force of our behaviors enable us to influence or shape our environment.

• Reframe your mental models — challenge your assumptions
