Number one – Know your Purpose
When I think of people in my life that I would describe as resilient they really know what they are about, they know what they are trying to achieve, they know why they are trying to achieve it and they are disciplined to take action. When things don’t go according to plan they are flexible, they adapt and move on.
Purpose + Motivation + Discipline + Flexibility = Resilience
So consider asking yourself the following questions to build your resilience:
- What do I want to achieve? PURPOSE
- Why do I want to achieve it? MOTIVATION
- What do I need to do, when & how often? DISCIPLINE
- What can I learn from unexpected setbacks? FLEXIBILITY
