Resilience: Bend and bounce, so you won’t break
Always remember that if you feel good, things will go better. And feeling good is a choice. You can change negative thought habits; this has been scientifically proven with behavioral therapies. Use positive self-talk. Direct your inner dialogue, allowing moment-by-moment opportunities to encourage yourself as a friend, mentor, coach, and advocate.
Remember, it’s your movie, your life story. Often, the best-loved films are stories where underdogs triumph: where the lead characters, presented with adversity, discover their deep inner strength, embrace change, learn powerful lessons, bounce back, and ultimately win the day. Resilient people view difficulty as an opportunity to adapt, create, innovate, and advance in one or many areas of their lives. Does art imitate life, or is it the other way around? That’s up to you.
