Being successful in both your personal and professional life requires you to overcome adversity, learn from it, and push forward… RESILIENCE. Here are three ways to help develop it, utilize it, and be successful.
Embrace Your Failures
Every time you fail it is an opportunity to learn. On the road to success you will find failures. You can allow them paralyze you, or you can receive each one as an opportunity to shift what can you do next time. By viewing a failed interview or presentation as a learning opportunity you will be more confident in the next one.
In job searching, for example, it’s easy to become discouraged and think, There’s no way I’m going to get this job. This is a limit that you immediately place upon yourself. Keep an open mind and push harder and further than you thought was possible. You’ll never know what you can accomplish until you push yourself and live limitless.
Know Why You’re Doing What You’re Doing
Whether your career choice is to have a respectable career and provide for your family, or to be able to travel the world and work, find a sense of purpose for what you’re doing. This will help you in finding your self worth so that you may move forward to obtain your goals.
Resilience only goes as far as your belief in the purpose for which you are applying it to. In your mission to start your own business, find your dream job, or get the big promotion, find reason in doing so. Believe in your mission, because the failures and discomforts along the way will test you constantly. If you truly embrace it, resilience will come naturally.
