The Importance of Resilience in Life and Business
You likely know someone who seems as if they can take what seems like a punch in the face over and over but still get back on their feet and try again? Their resilience is powerful and inspiring and something you should be focused on too if you want to succeed in life. Discover a few of the reasons you want to enhance your resilience, below.
To Maintain Motivation and Determination
Resilience is about getting back up on your feet no matter how painful or challenging so you can achieve your goals. It's about maintaining your physical and mental health so you can keep making steps to be better or live your dreams.
It is the motivation and determination you need when nothing else is working or feels right. It's about telling yourself to do anyway because you know in the end it will be so much better than where you are now.
To Be More Self-Efficient and Independent
While it can be scary to hear, the only person you can rely on throughout life is yourself. Your parents, friends, other family members, or spouse can't provide you the same things you can, nor can they do so if they want to. They have their own lives to live and control. You already know what you need to be happy and to get things done. If you wait for others to do it for you, you can be confident you will never be genuinely happy.
To Learn from Failure and Transform It
Failure creates better problem-solving skills and leads to more success. While it sounds like an oxymoron, it's true. Most success comes from failure. Without failure, you can't learn or grow. You discover your true capabilities with failure, gain self-confidence and the resilience needed to get through anything life throws at you.
To Better Embrace Change
As you are aware by now, change is unavoidable. The faster you face this fact and understand it, the better your life will be overall. You can't stop negative stuff from happening. But you can control how you react. The way you respond can then set in motion where you want your life to go. In other words, you can let something debilitate you or build up your resilience to power through any obstacle.
Overall, resilience is vital for your physical and mental health. It keeps you focused on where you want to be instead of scrummaging to defeat. Resilience allows you to have the power to keep going without affecting your overall happiness.
