WHEN THINGS DON’T GO YOUR WAY.
At times, everyone experiences things that don’t go their way. How we deal with setbacks defines not just your present but more importantly, your future. Resilience is fundamental to how the future you, moves forward. Not allowing negative or unexpected things, which are almost always temporary, to defeat or define you is the essence of resilience.
It’s to easy to get pissed off, to feel dejected, to lose your self-confidence, feel like you’ve had enough, like it’s time to change direction and give up on your goals. Everyone feel like that at one time or another. It’s resilience that stops you.
Don’t allow your mind to live in your past failures, after-all, isn’t failing learning?
Upgrading your thoughts about yourself and having a genuine confidence in your abilities and an openness to learn means everything will fall into place, maybe not overnight but over time, things will improve and you find your happy place.
Reset your mind and align your thoughts with what you want to achieve over the long term. Avoid—at all costs—negative self-talk and distance yourself form people that talk or act negatively. Instead, surround yourself with people that challenge you, forcing you to up your game, to constantly improve.
It’s to easy to get pissed off, to feel dejected, to lose your self-confidence.
Turn your thoughts towards optimism and increase your expectations of yourself. Don’t just think positively, be assertive and decisive with regard to the actions that help you towards your goals. When hit with bad news or temporary setbacks, be resilient and don’t give up on the goals that you have set.
In the face of rejection or failure, remind yourself of your long-term goals. When nothing appears to be going your way, maintain the confidence in yourself, even if no one else does.
Keep trying, even if you keep failing. Never lose your sense of humour, your sense of purpose or your self worth. Don’t let the defeats change you. Stay positive, driven and motivated and forget past failures.
Resiliency is a superpower that will give you the strength and courage to effectively deal with short- term defeats, to overcome them and to drive forward in the pursuit of your goals and that happy place, wherever it may be.
