John Dabrowski is a mental resilience expert and former professional basketball player. He is the author of two books — Off the Wall: How to Develop World-Class Mental Resilience and 100 Days to Mental Resilience.

This Expert Insight Interview discusses:

  • What mental resilience actually is
  • The power of gratitude
  • Five pillars of mental resilience

Positive Mindset

According to Mr. Dabrowski, mental resilience has to do with a person’s ability to respond to pressure situations. So, how does one start building their mental resilience, especially at a time when it has been tested to the full?

The conscious mind can only think about one thing at a time, and what you think about is what you feel. If you’re thinking about a negative situation, you’ll soon be finding yourself in a spiral of negativity, so you must shift to a positive mindset.


A great technique to use when you find yourself in a negative spiral is to take a minute and list all the things in your life that you’re grateful for. Gratitude is massively helpful in getting over negative thoughts.

You can find things to be grateful for everywhere you look, so a key principle of mental resilience has to do with learning to look for those things and keep them in the forefront of your mind. Even the most negative situations can yield a positive result if you actively look for it.

5 Pillars of Mental Resilience

Most people understand that mindfulness, gratitude and shifting to a positive mindset can be helpful, but find themselves unable to sustain these practices for a long time. John Dabrowski’s answer to this problem is reflected in his five pillars of mental resilience:

  • Commitment
  • Control
  • Self-belief
  • Focus
  • Motivation

John believes that putting these principles together and sticking to them creates consistency, and consistency is the key to success in anything.
