ThePeopleAlchemist Edit: Resilience – Resilience – Be your best self – #SmashYourCeiling, change starts from within -Business & Lifestyle Experimentation for #TheWomanAlchemist
Welcome to the final blog on resilience for August. Whilst I am sure that we have all learnt something of value, I wanted to take this time to recap on some of the ideas that we have explored.
We started with ‘The Power of Resilience’ and learnt, from the beginning, that it begins with you. It begins on the inside and through the work we do on ourselves, it shows on the outside.
Of particular importance were the five ways of becoming more resilient.
Let us not forget that change starts with us and our choices – and it is through resilience that we attain a purpose, a drive, and a destination towards keeping ourselves young, at least at heart.
We have learnt to smile, and to cry. Having learnt to love, to be loved, and to be open to loving ourselves.
Learning that it is okay to let go when we need to, and that resilience isn’t about just holding on.
Looking at our lives, at the challenges that we have faced and survived. We looked at our growth – how far we have come, and how much further we still must go.
Accepting that we are imperfect, and that is perfectly fine.
Knowing that it is fine to cry, to talk to ourselves in the mirror, to ask for help when we need it. We have learnt that this isn’t weakness, but strength.
And we have learnt that even when we don’t need to do any of this, we can be supportive of those who do.
Your journey towards resilience is your own
Most of all, we now know that we all have different goals, different dreams, different futures that we seek.
And individually, our journey may be different, but the methods we use can be the same – for the lessons we have learnt in improving our mental performance are lessons that we can apply in all facets of life.
We are as resilient as we want to be.
If you’re not where you want to be, then you can get there – and these lessons can help you #SmashYourCeiling!
Excitingly enough, next month, we dive deeper into the reflection pool to find out just how we make all our lessons work together!
