Why is Resilience Important?

One of the beauties of life is being able to turn unfavourable situations into your favour. Like the saying goes when life gives you lemon, make lemonade out of it.

Unfortunately, most people are unable to cope when faced with situations or difficulties, thereby allowing it to get the better part of them. It’s okay if you get knocked down, but it’s not okay for you to remain on the ground without getting up.

Resilience is the ability to put all of life’s disappointment behind and forge ahead. It is being able to recognize that you failed, that you know you didn’t do well, but it’s not okay if you stay and blame yourself.

Resilience is an adapting ability displayed by people who focus.

Everyone possesses this ability. It’s just a question of how well you can use it. Resilience doesn’t mean you won’t feel low on some days; it doesn’t mean you won’t have some of those thoughts running through your mind. Instead, it means that you understand that this is life and anything can happen, and you have found a better way of dealing with the situation.

So you might be asking yourself “is resilience so important?” Yes, it is. It’s important because it gives people the strength to tackle problems, overcome adversity and move on. There is a saying that what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.

How Do You Build Resilience?

  • Be willing. You must be intentional about it.
  • See yourself as a fighter rather than a victim. Fighters don’t give up.
  • Have a positive view of yourself and your ability.
  • Be a good communicator.
  • Manage your emotions effectively.

Remember quitters never win and winners never quit.
