Resilience is very different than being numb. Resilience means you experience, you feel, you fail, you hurt. You fall. But, you keep going. – Yasmin Mogahed
When you fail and hurt, it sure seems hard to get back up. Yet, isn’t failure simply part of the game of life?
Sometimes we fail forward, sometimes we fail backward. It actually shows that you are engaged in your life and willing to put yourself out there. When you’re feeling like the failure is getting the best of you, here are some steps to keep in mind that might help you get back on track:
- Ask yourself, what caused you to fail? Get to the root of the problem. Understand this part and make a plan to overcome this roadblock the next time.
- Seek guidance and support. Ask experts in the field, read books, search the internet, talk about your experience with your closest friends/people you can trust. Have an open conversation and be willing to listen. If your ears are closed off, you won’t set yourself up for success.
- Write out your goals and post them for you to see every single day. You can even break these large goals into smaller goals and smaller goals into step by steps. This will help you keep your mind focused and not wander off the path.
- Check in with yourself daily. Ask yourself how are you doing? Do you envision success or do you envision being stuck? Your mind can rob you of negative thoughts if you allow it. Keep going! You can achieve most anything you put your mind to.
Now is your chance to rebuild, start new, and refresh. We learn as we go and that doesn’t make us any less valuable than the day before. Instead that makes us even more valuable because we have learned more about ourselves.
When you know yourself even better, you can use your strengths to be the best person you can be.
