Resilience

How To Be Resilient

It took me a while to realize, that there is a specific issues that I address in all of my private work and training:

Weather I teach EFT, military culture, clutter clearing, trauma relief or business – everything I do has to do with helping people become more resilient.

WOW – I don’t know which rock I was sleeping under, but it took 3 friends to point out the obvious, as I was struggling to make sense of my to help others in so many different ways. I mean…seriously?

Military Culture Training and Clutter Clearing? How does THAT go together?

Resilience is what gets us through the tough times. No matte where we live, the resilient people usually find a way to make things work.

It means getting your feet on the ground, realizing what you can and cannot change, doing more of what you are good at and leave the rest to others.

It means bouncing back from a trauma, a fear or an illness, no matter how much it has impacted you in your life.

It means being able to deal with people who bother you, or do things you don’t like to do – just because it’s the right thing to do at the time.

Resilience means thinking outside of the box, looking for opportunities that others don’t see, and having the courage to do things you’ve never tried, to see if you can find a different way to get what you want.

Resilience also means being 100% honest to yourself and others: Sometimes things suck. They are really, really hard.

Sugarcoating what’s hard doesn’t make it easier, instead it drains our energy.

It means that we are afraid to admit that we need help, that we’d like some compassion, that we are at the end of our rope.

And we run our batteries dry, instead of getting the rest or caring that we need.

Resilience means being able to be vulnerable – even in public. Feeling that we have nothing to hide, that we don’t have to be perfect, and that we can admit a mistake easily, without fearing the worst.

Resilience means taking 100% responsibility for our actions, the good, the bad, and, yes, the ugly. And then change what we wish we hadn’t done.

We are resilient when we cry, resilient when we laugh, resilient when we celebrate.

The only time when we are not resilient is when we allow others to determine what’s right, how we should feel, what we should do.

Resilient people make their own decisions. And Yes, this includes making a decision to heal trauma, heal a family story that has been haunting us, healing from adversity.

Resilience means allowing ourselves to change our past, well not directly, but how we feel about what happened, so that we can move forward.

Some of the people that I admire the most are incredibly charismatic, vulnerable and authentic, in front of large crowds, as well as in private.

They make you feel as if you were the only person in the room, as if they see you, understand you and support you, because they can.

They have the capacity to take you forward, without intimidating you, just guiding and leading a crowd by helping them find inside what gives them the power to do more.

I want you to be resilient.

You are terrific, and you deserve to shine – no matter what!

Much love and power to you
