I was reflecting on a presentation I saw today on resilience and how a person best builds it up … The ideas presented were good, yet I still think they overlooked the most basic things that are at the heart of having resilience: trust and faith.
Trust as in:
trust in yourself,
trust in your abilities to bounce back – regardless…,
trust that the universe has your back;
trust that in the end, everything will work out.
To me, resilience means, that although I may not know right now how it will end, I am just sure that I can cope with the outcome. Be that a burned dinner, a botched sales pitch or a broken leg …
Faith: Resilience also means having “faith” to me.
Faith in myself, as well as in the faith I put in trust.
Resilience to me, isn’t overcoming the bad, but knowing that I can handle whatever I set out to do.
