A fixed mindset vs a growth mindset
Resilience is a process, not a single quality that you either have or don’t have. Developing resilience involves a change in the way you mange your thoughts, emotions, desires and choices. Many people believe that changes is not possible, or that their patterns of thought and behaviour are set in stone and they are destined to live with their psychological pain, in other words they have a fixed mindset. However, advanced behavioural, cognitive and neuroscience tells us otherwise. The brain is capable of change and people can learn new, adaptive ways of dealing with adversities. It is this growth mindset that helps you take the first step in the journey of building resilience. Take our Readiness to Change assessment to determine whether you have a fixed mindset or a growth mindset .

Welcome to The Resilient Mind Sign Up process. Just a few more guidelines that we all commit to following to ensure your experience is valuable:
The Resilient Mind experience is one that requires commitment and engagement on your part in order to derive maximum gain from the process. The following are the guidelines to help you better understand your own participation in this process.
- I am prepared to attend all group sessions and complete all e-learning activities that are part of the program.
- I am prepared to learn how to create engaging relationships with participants in my group by participating in the activities.
- I am prepared to be empathetic and respectful towards my fellow group members.
- I commit to keeping everything said in the groups strictly confidential.
- I am committed to practicing honesty without over-disclosing. This means being appropriate in what you share with the group. In case you have a mental health or behavioral struggle, instead of directly disclosing it to the group you can use terms such as:
- When I have a hard day I become more susceptible to anxiety.
- When I feel lonely I experience bouts of depression.
- When people hurt me I sometimes get angry at them and hurt them back.
- When I get hard on myself I tend to have one too many drinks.
Note: that in case you are not able to keep up with the Dashboard activities, a friendly reminder is provided via email. If you still find it difficult to commit to the sessions and activities, you will be contacted to discuss if it will be more convenient to participate in a Resilient Mind session on another date.
