Building Resilience and Creating GRIT

Tony will help you tap into and capitalize on your GRIT so when adversity or stress arises, you will bounce back seemingly unscathed. Here are some tips to help build your resilience.

Strength is found in numbers

Establishing a support system, even if it’s with your recovery coach, will help you overcome challenges and encourage you to tap into your resilience. As you walk through obstacles with your recovery coach and support system, you will quickly learn that you can accomplish anything.

Learning from your past and moving forward in strength

Experience is the best teacher. Identifying how you coped with painful situations in the path will provide you with a ton of insight. Tony will help you strategize on how you can tackle existing or future issues by focusing on your strengths.


With the help of your recovery coach, you will be allotted time to tend to your own needs. Tony will work with you on finding inner peace and serenity through meditative practices to help you maintain balance during even the darkest of times while building your resilience.
