“Resilience is very different than being numb. Resilience means you experience, you feel, you fail, you hurt. You fall. But, you keep going.” — Yasmin Mogahed
Today’s training is about building a resilience mindset, so that no matter what happens—in work or in life—you can experience your emotions, but still feel whole, powerful and intact.
Life, by nature, can feel up and down. You might have an amazing day, get tons of praise at work, be in an amazing relationship and feel like an all-around rockstar as result. And there might be days when you fall up the subway stairs, mumble through a presentation or get really bad news about a loved one and it can make you feel really low. So how do we ride the waves without having our emotions live in the wild extremes of life? By being so deeply rooted in our truth that nothing can throw us off kilter.
Let me be clear here—there is nothing wrong with deeply experiencing your feelings or your pain—in fact I advocate for it. If we deny them, or bury them, they'll surface in another way or time.
The difference between feeling our pain and anguish but having the ability to keep going, is really a conversation of self-worth. Resilience, at its root is about knowing that whatever happens we will be loved, respected and worthy regardless of circumstance. That knowing allows us to move through our circumstances with the belief that we'll be okay. But how do we get there?
