Today I want to share the Power of Resilience with you.
What is Resilience?
According to the American Psychological Association, “psychologists define resilience as the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or significant sources of stress—such as family and relationship problems.”
In short, I define Resilience as the ability to bounce back from setbacks and make a comeback.
Why is building Resilience important?
It is important to build resilience because it gives you both the physical and mental strength to overcome any hardship, setback and adversity you face in your life. Lack of resilience may cause a person to give up easily and have a weaker mindset. They will not be motivated to pursue their goals in life. This may also lead to some mental health issues such as depression and anxiety.
So, it is important to build resilience as you will be more confident and adaptable when facing any setback or adversity. You will become a stronger and tougher person.
The Steve Tee’s Triple C Model to build Resilience.
I came out with the model and here are the three steps approach that may help you to build resilience.
1. Control your thoughts.
It is normal human nature for us to have negative thoughts when we face a problem and setback. You need to constantly tell yourself to think positively rather than negatively. Remember that the power of words can either pull you back or push you forward in achieving your goals in life.
So keep telling and reminding yourself with some of these phrases;
“I can do it!”
“I can overcome this challenge.”
“Yes, it’s possible.”
“I will make a comeback!”
2. Change your approach.
After you have set your positive thinking mindset, it’s time to focus on the solutions, review what works and what doesn’t.
When things don’t seem to work, change your approach.
Most of the time we have the resistance to change. It’s time to step out of your comfort zone and put all your fear aside.
If you are running a brick-and-mortar business and are struggling during this covid-19 pandemic, change your business model to either brick-to-order or click-to-order approach.
You own a brick and mortar business such as; F&B, retail and consumer products businesses, you should try bringing your business online during this pandemic and digital era. It may be overwhelming during the initial stage, however, always take it step by step in your new approach.
As the saying goes, “A journey of thousand miles begins with a single step.” So, start taking your first step in your new approach.
3. Continue to persevere
Continue to stay optimistic, focus on the solutions and keep taking steps to overcome your challenges and adversity.
People or even your friends may tell you
“It’s not possible”
“Don’t waste your time.”
“I think you should give up.””I don’t think you will make it.”
Ignore all these comments, keep believing you will overcome the adversity and continue to persevere and make a comeback!
Now, I have faced many struggles, setbacks and adversities in my life, however I didn’t allow them to stop me from chasing my dream and achieving my goals.
Everyone will encounter adversity and challenges in their life, whether it’s in your study, work, business and relationship. Building resilience is like building muscles on your body. So, start building your resilience now.
