Resilience or being resilient is something that concerns us all, but probably isn’t something we draw our attention to, or even think about.
When we have resilience, we tend not to see failure as something to dwell on, but we see it as an opportunity to help us move on. We accept that to fail can sometimes be a part of what we need to go through, but instead of doing anything, we deal with that thing.
Being resilient helps us bounce back, so that we can go on to make different and better choices.
Where does resilience come from?
Resilience comes from within us. Our environment, our peers and our schooling all contribute to how resilient we can become. Any significant influence or event in our lives will have a large and great impact on us personally. We use resilience to successfully live our lives, whilst our inner strength and abilities are our test through those experiences.
Although we’re not always aware of just how resilient we are, in my own case I must have been to have come this far and to do what I do now. Resilience teaches us determination, it also teaches us how to cope in difficult circumstances.
Once we have it, it’s important we continue to keep it up.
