How to Be Resilient

Life is not for the timid. Believe me, life never gives you what you think you deserve, you snatch what you think you deserve from life.

Life happens to many people, they just go with the flow of things and do not pause to think if there is more to life than the norm they are used to. But for some others, they happen to life, life does not happen to them. They dictate to life what they want and work towards getting it, they don’t go with the norm, they don’t let failure cripple them, they take life by its horns. These people are called RESILIENT.

What is Resilience?

Resilience is the ability to quickly bounce back when things don’t go as planned. It is having the ability to quickly recover from failure, misfortune or setbacks in general.

To succeed in life, one needs to be resilient, you need not let life situations weigh you down. Rather, you need to get up, dust yourself and get on the move again. No one is celebrated in life for giving up in the middle of achieving a thing, it is only winners no matter how long it took them to win that are celebrated.

Characteristics of a Resilient Person

Resilient people tackle challenges. They love to be challenged and they put in their bests in overcoming such challenges. They apply for jobs that may seem daunting to others, prepare well for it and even if they fail at that, they give it a comeback and do better.

2. Committed

Resilient people are very committed to whatever they put their mind into. They have this sense of responsibility to give their best shot and not give up when the going gets tough. They have a never say never attitude.

3. Positivism

Resilient individuals learn from the mistakes of the past but do not hold on to them. They see failure as a vital part of the learning process and turn it around to favour them in the long run.
