On this week’s episode, we learn about the power of resiliency. We hear lessons from Dr. Andrew Shatte, and we hear how Josh’s resiliency was tested recently.
- Josh and Shelby talk about internet surfing worm holes and the invention of the slinky. Learn why resiliency seems like an easy concept that’s actually quite difficult in practice.
- Andrew Shatte lists the seven competencies of resiliency:
- Emotion control
- Behavior control
- Impulse control
- Problem-solving ability
- Realistic optimism
- Competency for dealing with good times
- Shatte developed a questionnaire based on the seven competencies to determine how well a person deals with unexpected outcomes, failures and negative times in their lives.
Favorite quote from this episode:
“Just as there’s a radar that leads to sadness, there’s one that leads to happiness. We can help people look for what’s going well in their lives so they experience that happiness, too.”
