Listen – do you ever wake up in the morning, look at yourself in the mirror and just feel tired? If so, you’re not alone.
With COVID numbers rising again, many folks are again experiencing greater restrictions on what we can do, where we can go, and the number of people we can hang out with. People are feeling uncertain, and there is a general malaise and fatigue.
Its like being in the backseat of a car on a long drive, and asking: “are we there yet?”, when the end seems no where in sight. Many people are just plain tired.
That’s why today I’m going to share with you one way that you can use to be more resilient.
So, what is resilience?
Wiki defines it as:
- the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties;
- an ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change; and
- the ability to spring back.
By definition, when we’re feeling afraid, tired or stressed out, we aren’t very resilient …
I love this quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf: “It’s your reaction to adversity, not adversity itself that determines how your life’s story will develop.”
So much more is possible when we are feeling resilient!
And yes, support is required because we can’t see the picture when we’re in the frame. So, if you’d like support, you’re going to want to attend my online Vision Workshop scheduled for November 14th. Thousands around the world have successfully used this system to become more resilient and build lives they love living. Watch for more information and save the date.
Tip No. 1: to increase resilience, challenge your perspective of a situation.
What you focus on expands – this is a principle of physics. So, when we focus on challenges, how hard it is, and how tired we are, we’re going to experience more of the same.
So, let’s ask another question. And that is – what’s a gift this situation has given you so far?
- Does this give me more family time?
- Have you discovered you’d love deeper connection with others?
- Have you realized you work too much or at a job you don’t love?
- Have you picked up an old hobby?
- Have you gained a new skill?
Awareness is key, and every awareness can be a gift. And, if you can’t think of any “gifts”, allow the question to live lightly in your mind and consider this quote by J.K. Rowling: “Rock bottom became the solid foundation in which I rebuilt my life.”
Here’s to you building the life you love living, regardless of the circumstance, situation or condition you may be facing.
