Had a good time on Saturday, conducting a talk for the community at Queenstown Community Centre. Some key points on my sharing with the audience that day.

In today’s dynamic world, nurturing resilience in the youth is paramount. Instead of focusing on deficits, it is crucial to approach their journey from a standpoint of growth and endless possibilities. This mindset shift forms the cornerstone of building robust resilience.

Key Learning Points

1. Start from a Place of Growth & Possibilities

Resilience isn’t merely about bouncing back from adversity but thriving in the face of challenges. Encourage the youth to view setbacks as opportunities for growth. Emphasize the importance of a growth mindset, where failures are seen as stepping stones toward success. By instilling this perspective, we empower them to believe in their own potential.


2. Power of Youth Mentoring and Coaching

Guidance plays a pivotal role in cultivating resilience. Youth mentoring and coaching provide invaluable support systems. These coaches & mentors serve as beacons of wisdom, offering not just advice, but also a safe space for expression. Through active listening and insightful feedback, we help young individuals navigate through obstacles, empowering them to make informed decisions.


3. More Than One Way Towards Building Resiliency & Success

Resilience isn’t a one-size-fits-all concept. There are multifaceted approaches to fostering resilience, tailored to individual strengths and circumstances. Encourage diverse experiences, from involvement in extracurricular activities to pursuing passions outside school. These varied avenues provide opportunities for skill-building, character development, and self-discovery.



Empowering youth with resilience is an investment in their future. By reframing challenges as opportunities for growth, leveraging mentorship, and recognizing the multitude of pathways to success, we equip them with the tools they need to thrive in an ever-evolving world. Let us champion the resilience of our youth and guide them towards a future of boundless potential.
