Science to Building Resilience You will exhibit 2 levels to brain development when facing a threatening challenge. 1. Recognizing the threat - The brain learns most rapidly under life threat so if your survival is threatened the brain starts developing new pathways to figure out how to respond and adapt. 2. Love & Safety - When we feel safe and secure we take risks and our mind is more open and we get less rigid. It takes the combo of a life threatening situation with love and safety When someone is facing a challenge they get tunnel vision and freak out and resilient goes out the window but if you can provide safety through love they stay soft and open and build that capacity.

How can you instill healthy beliefs in your family? One of the most important questions we can ask ourselves after every interaction with our kids, “When our children walk away, what did they just conclude?” Your beliefs become your thoughts, 
Your thoughts become your words, 
Your words become your actions, 
Your actions become your habits, 
Your habits become your values, 
Your values become your destiny.
