What Does Resilience Mean to You?
With strong self-resilience, you can remain adaptable, energised and resourceful regardless of the situation. All of this enables you to navigate the demands you face more effectively.
Capacity Can Double
Resilience extends capacity by connecting you to things that give you energy rather than drain it. You spot challenges in advance so you can act to diminish them, and you ask for help instead of doing everything by yourself.
Great Clarity & Alignment
This is about living more proactively and less reactively. You connect more clearly with what matters to you and eliminate stuff that is not meaningful. You can then give more attention and focus to the most important things.
Greater Perspective & Decision-Making
By developing your resilience, you take in different points of view and see more of the truth of a situation – enabling better understanding and more options. By increasing your options of how to do things, and your perspective to assess how realistic and doable the options are, you can make more successful decisions.
Performance requires attention and focus. Being able to hold your attention is resilient behaviour. It comes when you have enough energy and awareness of what is interesting to focus on at one time and trust that other things can be dealt with another time.
Release of Creativity
In some contexts, performance requires a free, open, roaming kind of focus – free association. The brain can put together previously unconnected pieces of information. This is at the heart of releasing creativity and innovation.
