Learning & Practicing 

To Be Resilient

In learning to be resilient you can promote health and happiness! The ability to cope and bounce back. The ability to overcome pressure, stress and setbacks. The ability to use it to your advantage and get competitive with yourself to succeed!

In practicing to be resilient you can promote what works best for you to live the life you want to live!

Practicing . . .

  • For instance, seeing the good and the positive in a situation; active optimism.
  • For instance, being in control and making the decisions that work best for you; decisive action.

In practicing active optimism you have the power and the ability to change! Taking that fight or flight response and learning how to move forward instead of retreating. Conquering and learning from mistakes, setbacks and failures. Being open and weighing your options in a situation to learn, grow and gain experiences for the better of your whole being!  

Along with active optimism one needs to take decisive action to rebound and move forward! Be in control and make those decisions, especially the hard, difficult decisions. No one but you should be making hard, difficult decision for you! 

Learning . . .

Most importantly listen to your inner voice, follow your heart and trust your gut! What are your beliefs,values, ethics, and morals? How do you make honorable and honest decisions for yourself? How do you look for truth and integrity in making decisions for yourself? Being true to who you are and following your path in doing what is best for your whole being is a good option!

Along with competing with yourself is finding that determination and persistence to go after what you truly want! Practicing persistence is also knowing when to release, let go and head in another direction. Practicing to be aware and open to all opportunities. Learning when to power up or power down in a given situation to protect yourself and use your energy to your best advantage!

Here is something to think about!

  • Who has your back? You as well as your greatest supporters or not.
  • Who can you depend on? You, your supporters, a select few, or no one in particular.

This helps immensely in being resilient and tapping into your strengths!

There is that need for closing ranks and supporting each other! Just because you ask for support or even help does not mean you are weak. It means you need support and assistance as well as love and care. You need that optimism and positive energy from others to cheer yourself on!
