Why Settle for Resilient? Become AntiFragile!

SuperheroesOne Source EAP Connections – August 2020

Learn, Develop and Improve Through Chaos

There is a lot of discussion these days suggesting we need to be resilient. But what is resilient? It’s the ability to survive the storm, to keep yourself safe until the winds are calm and the storm has passed.

AntiFragile, on the other hand, is to take in the power of the storm to grow and thrive.

During the stay at home order, many people focused on enduring until it was over—being resilient. However, drawing strength from the positives that you may have experienced, like having more family dinners, game nights or just more time to reflect—that is an antifragile mindset!

Watch the One Source EAP Calm Collection video by Owen Fitzpatrick, explaining how you can turn adversity into growth using an antifragile mindset.

Remember, you are never alone! Should you feel challenged emotionally by these trying times, please reach out to One Source EAP at (800) 300-0628. We are here for you 24 x 7 x 365.

  • Operate in reality
  • Break the negative and build the positive
  • Use intelligent risk
  • Seek collective wisdom
