When you look at ways to be successful at work, you will find articles that offer different tips on how to achieve it. Some of these tips may include doing more work than what is listed in your job description, improving your skillset and taking on additional commitments.

However, with the changing workplace, fierce rivalries and cutbacks, coping with these changes or being resilient is a skill that every employee must learn and practice. Without it, it can be challenging to keep up with the challenges brought by work and cause our performance to drop significantly.

To help you build resilience, here are some great tips you can do:

Stay Positive

To become resilient, you need to stay and be positive no matter what happens at work. Being positive helps you strengthen your mental and emotional state, reducing the possibility of burnout and becoming weary.

Build Emotional Insight

The following way to build resilience is by strengthening your emotional insight. If you have a good level of awareness of your emotions, you will know how your feelings affect your actions and how people will act when you act a certain way.

Create A Healthy Work-Life Balance

You can also build resilience by having a solid work-life balance, which can help you deal with daily challenges brought by work and personal life. If one wishes to bounce back from the challenges brought by work, one will need time outside work for relaxation and recovery.

See Challenges As A Learning Opportunity

Challenges can be considered as a learning opportunity, especially if you haven’t faced the challenge before. As you try to get past the challenge, you will master the right skills and improve the experience that will allow you to counter it faster when it happens again.

Celebrate Successes

At the end of every workday, take some time to review what happened throughout the day and what successes you achieved. Congratulate yourself for these successes, even if they are minor victories. Doing this practice allows you to change your mindset from focusing only on mistakes but focusing primarily on the positives.

Create Realistic Goals

When it comes to work or life in general, you need to have goals to achieve in every project. These goals should be easy to reach and allow you to focus easily on your tasks before you.

Creating unrealistic goals can only cause stress and disable you from concentrating on the task at hand. Don’t be afraid to take one step at a time to achieve your tasks if they seem to be hard to do in one go.

There are a lot more ways to help strengthen your capacity to be resilient at work. Ask yourself what allows you to focus and remind yourself about your goals because not all techniques work for you. Once you develop an excellent strategy to improve your resilience, you will see a significant difference in how you handle challenges and perform at work.

  1. Good ideas, Kally, which is typical of you.

    Some of these, I practice already, but a few of the others are new concepts.

    “Celebrate Successes” is particularly valuable advice, and I most definitely shall make it a point to do so every day. Plus, it’ll give me something to do during the commute home. Besides being annoyed at traffic, that is.

    Thanks, Kally!
