Gurbaksh Chahal | Resilience is the Key to Success
Resilience. Commitment. Passion.
These three words are characteristics. Characteristics of someone who isn’t willing to give up. Someone who isn’t going to accept anything but success. Someone who’s dictionary doesn’t include the words – failure or giving up. These are some of the most captivating character traits one can possess.
It’s true, some may take longer than others to bounce back. But, regardless of who you are, you can do it too. No matter what you’ve endured, no matter who’s hurt you, if you’re motivated, you too, can be resilient.
Everything you can imagine, it can all be yours. All you need is the mental focus, the drive, and the motivation to go get it. To everyone else, that is revolutionary. Here’s why:
You Become A New You
Rather than crawling back in your hole and ignoring everything, you’re able to go out an face the challenges. You let yourself feel down, but that doesn’t stop you. Because you’re able to take that emotion and use it as a motivator for new success.
You’re able to fall and bounce back higher than you ever have before. With that, you reinvent yourself mentally and emotionally. You become revolutionary, you raise questions in others, and you open new doors.
You See the Future
Everyone has issues they deal with whether it’s personal, business, or maybe relationships. You don’t deny them, but neither do you keep bringing them up. You’re able to put them aside and see the bright future ahead.
Resilient beings aren’t constantly wondering “What if,” they’re wondering “Ok, now what’s next?” It’s a mindset. If you get laid off from a job, you focus on how much better the next job will be. How much more disruptive will you be in your new position?
The past will never leave you, but it’s not about the past, it’s about the “now” and what’s next.
You Can Build Resistance
From your resilience, you become stronger. The new obstacles you face become less of a burden. There is nothing that will be able to knock you down, and people will realize that.
Nobody Has To Hold You
Your bounce back will make you realize that you don’t need others to console you. You are your own glue. In fact, after others seeing this change within you, they will change too.
You Learn How To Deal
At this point, you’ve realized how to deal with problems. After all, you’re able to bounce back from the biggest one yet. You use your own formula to input a situation and output success.
Resilience is all about being able to overcome the unexpected. Sustainability is about survival. The goal of resilience is to thrive.
And as a wise person once said, “When we tackle obstacles, we find hidden reserves of courage and resilience we did not know we had. And it is only when we are faced with failure do we realise that these resources were always there within us. We only need to find them and move on with our lives.”
