The 6 Elements for Change: ​How to Ride the Rapids of Change & Build Your Resilience Muscle

We don’t have to instinctively succumb to our brain’s “fight or flight” response when faced with change. We have a choice – and it comes down to these six elements, spelled from the word CHANGE:

  1. C is for Candor: Self-honesty is a key piece to personal resiliency.
  2. H is for Heroism: We can tap into our inner hero by making our actions right and just.
  3. A is for Acceptance: Change is inevitable. We absolutely cannot escape it.
  4. N is for Nurture: Commit to taking the time to create and pursue self-nurturing activities.
  5. G is for Gratitude: Gratitude gifts us with a different perspective so we can explore different ways of moving forward.
  6. E is for Engagement: When we show up, committed with head and heart, we build resiliency.

Resilience is about building muscle. With every experience we have with change, we're learning something about how to get through that particular change. We store that in our resilience muscle. Over time, with practice, we accrue what I call resilience wisdom, and it's that wisdom that we tap into as life throws new challenges our way.
