#TakeASecThursday: Resilience

plant growing through concrete, resilience, mindset, adversity

Dig Deep and let’s GO!! It’s #TakeASecThursday today and we will consider Resilience.

Working through in an industry where sales fell by 60% during the last recession (2009-12), I learned the importance of resilience, and the critical position MINDSET holds in order to get up and get going each day knowing the huge “adapt-or-die” measures were been taken by all companies. Today with #Brexit, this is also an important consideration.

As a concept, resilience can only come from the experience of adversity or hardship – and the greater the adversity, the greater the resilience.

Friedrich Nietzsche was credited with the phrase “What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger”, in the consideration that people who go through the hardship of training tend to improve their performance.

For the top #performers across all areas, the idea of resilience coming from adversity leads them to test their total capacity – up to and beyond their known limits. They grow exponentially as a result.

Now, linking back to today, and to #TakeASecThursday, what will that mean for us?

  • What have you been holding back from; Honesty works best with yourself!
  • It could be physical, mental, emotional, spiritual…

I’m sure you’ve a “BIG one” that could be addressed with the full knowledge that after tackling it, YOU will be gifted with significant resilience to assist you rocking the next challenge out of the park.

Embrace the power that adrenaline has shot into your system even just thinking about it. This is the “standing on the shoulder of giants” moment in your great life.

Those Giants are your great achievements – Boom! Level Cleared!

Bet you are now loving the understanding and potential that resilience in growth can bring for you.
