Resilience is something you need, not only to survive but thrive in this world. I have concocted the perfect recipe for resilience.
- A mile or longer of hardships
- A dissertations worth of rejections
- A handful of heartbreaks
- A river full of tears
- A pinch of anxiety
In order to create the perfect batch of resilience you will have to make sure that you are prepped and ready. This recipe is difficult and not everyone can master each ingredient. Preparation is key.
To handle the anxiety, please ensure that you have coping mechanisms in place. This could be in the form of a stress ball or a notepad, anything that works for you.
To overcome rejection and hardships, always remember your goals. Why are you doing what you’re doing and what do you hope to achieve? Stay grounded in the goals and you will walk through the rejections with very little permanent scares. Also remember to take on board feedback for the rejections to ensure that you learn and grow.
For the heartbreaks, time is the best remedy. To help the time pass by, engulf yourself with people and things that you love, remember to also live for the now.
With the tears, a packet of tissue is always handy.
