Eventually today I’ll talk to you about resilience. I’m glad I waited.
“the ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; elasticity.”
“the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.”
Take a moment to think back on your life. The pivotal moments that pop into your head, the ones that have defined who you are today…
Likely, some of these memories will be of hardships. Breaking up with your first love, loosing a bet, failing an exam. You might ponder dealing with an illness (yours or someone you love), grappling to make a decision, struggling to deliver a piece of work or needing to answer a question that takes you way outside of your comfort zone.
You’ll likely remember the great bits too, the day you graduated, your wedding celebrations, meeting your first born. These too define who you are in a very real way, but it’s the hardships, the difficult bits, the ones that challenged you to the core where your ability to bounce back is developed. It’s from these places we grow the most. Resilience is the very essence of each of our greatness, the cherry of our success and the absolute essential ingredient when building a business that passionately drives a revolution.
It’s in our hardest times, we’ll have our greatest growth.
Cheers to a successful week – one that shoves us outside of our comfort zones.
