The Secret to Bouncing Back
Did you ever get kicked down when you were down before? Maybe you lost everything? Perhaps you lost everything?
Did you bounce back? Or did you fall into victim mode, spiraling into depression or anger?
We’ve all been there. Today we will talk about resilience.
Although I’ve been through some difficult times in my life, I didn’t realize it until now. But I’m resilient. My mother used to call me “her survivor” growing up. My mother used to call me “her survivor” when I was growing up.
In my 20s, I got married and had my first child. The marriage ended quickly, and I was forced to give up the support of my family to start a new life. I didn’t have any money, no house, and no job.
My company was sold to another company in my 30s. They brought in the “manager from hell,” and I lost the job that I had held for so many decades.
My mother was diagnosed with breast carcinoma in her 40s. She beat it, and it returned years later. The same year, I lost work, my daughter lost hers, and the family business was suffering.
The bottom line… Bottom line…I bounced back quickly from all that.
This self-reflection taught me the secrets to getting back up. Here’s what I learned:
1) Have an honest conversation with you.
Ask challenging questions, and give honest answers. You should own the part you played in it.
2) You have the power to control your destiny.
Your life and outcomes are yours. Failure is your fault, and it’s up to you to fix it.
You must take action to bounce back! It is essential to take action. You can only move forward by taking the first step and taking action. Now that you know where the mistakes were and have had an honest discussion with yourself, it’s time to plan your next move.
4) Don’t dwell on the failures.
Focus on creating something new and valuable. You can use your creativity and initiative to find solutions that work. You can’t do the same thing repeatedly, expecting different results. That is the definition of insane. So, try something new.
Give yourself a break. Let yourself have a good time and learn from your mistakes. This type of insight is a great way to learn. Be kind to yourself and find humor in every situation. Share it with others. This will allow you to connect with others and keep you positive.
6) Always choose the highest road.
Integrity is the most important trait you have, so keep it accurate. It is easy to criticize others, make excuses, and find fault with everything around you. This is the easiest path. However, it is more difficult not to look for all the reasons why something went wrong but to find the reason that you can make it right. Whatever happens, you must live your life with integrity and morality. The universe will always repay you; this is what I’ve learned.
You, too, will blossom into something beautiful, just like the spout that grows in the desert landscape. It is said that “what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.” This is resilience, which is something we all have in our arsenal to achieve success.
