Resilience:recovering from or adjusting easily to change or misfortune. You may think it's something you're either lucky to have or unlucky to lack, but that's not so. Resilience is an ordinary ability, and you can take focused action to build it in your life. Don't wait. Start today.
The first step to building resilience is accepting change. With Spring being a time we welcome change, this first step should be easy. Beyond acceptance, focus on your adaptability, strategic planning, results-oriented actions, and persistence-- so you can build resilience and achieve goals. While the economic forecast is looking rough in many parts of the world and here in New York the Department of Labor warns that 2008 was the good year, 2009 can still be fine.
To work toward keeping 2009 just fine, concentrate on building your resilience a little bit at a time and successfully seizing new opportunities. A few tips to do this include:
Avoid viewing crises as insurmountable.
Establish and grow your professional support network, making contact to ask for and accept help, and to help others.
Nurture a positive outlook, discover what restores you mentally, and take care of yourself physically.
Do not stop looking for new opportunities.
Take decisive action to work toward goals, proactively working a plan.
Resilience is an ordinary ability that everyone has, it is not extraordinary. But you must build and foster this ordinary ability to have it ready in challenging times to drive favorable business and professional results.
