Pump Up Your Resiliency Quotient-Dr. Joy Miller




  • Watch for positive changes you make and be sure to witness them.  Celebrate the dedication you are making as you build your gratefulness quotient.
  •  See the world from a position of positivity. Look for the good in the world, and attempt to visualize life filled with abundance vs. scarcity.
  • Look at situations as opportunities to learn new strategies for moving through an obstacle.  Be creative, limit your impulsivity, and be open to new ways to look at a situation and possible outcomes.
  • Be open to friendships and connections. Research shows that the most resilient people are the ones who have strong connections in their life.
  • You have a choice. You can look at the glass as half-full or half-empty.  The choice is yours.  Either the world is open to the beauty it possesses or it is filled with obstacles… which do you choose?
  • Look for opportunities. The Universe is holding them open for you, and you just have to keep your eyes open… your ears clear…and your arms open.
  • Be willing to be vulnerable. Be willing to touch your feelings. Open yourself to others and ask for what you need.
  • Accept that change is a natural part of life. Change helps us grow and teaches us new methods for looking at life and its possibilities.
  • Move forward with your goals but do so in small measured steps. This will encourage success and the possibility for you to celebrate the little accomplishments along the way.
  • Be grateful. Miracles surround you.  Be open to seeing what lies before you!
