It’s a funny word, resilience. All those i’s and e’s.
Building resilience is a very important part of our personal development.
Successful happy people, more often than not, do not have it any easier than those who are not so successful or happy. What they do have is resilience.
It’s not great coming home from a fantastic holiday or saying goodbye to a loved one or having a fabulous time and then realising that you’ve got to get back to work or school.
Most of us however suck it up and get on with it. That’s resilience.
It’s not great when you get an unexpected bill or rejected from that dream job, or we don’t like our job but we need the money. We get on with it. That’s resilience.
To be able to cope with the challenges that life throws at us we need to build resilience and we need to teach it to our future generations.
When there is change, whether good or bad it requires a different or new routine and we need to be able to adapt. That’s resilience.
If I ruled the world resilience would be taught in schools as a topic and developed over the years. To achieve to our full potential and to be more happy than sad and to feel good about life we need resilience. Simple.
It is something that we build over the years and essential to personal strength and happiness.
Food for thought.
