Got Resilience?

Many of  you know a thing or two about being resilient, that is to say, having the ability to get up, or bounce back, in a timely manner, after a challenge has derailed your best efforts.

This  ability to get up and keep moving successfully, is not developed over night; it results from a prolonged belief in your goals and dreams as well as the belief  that you really  deserve  exactly what you are striving to achieve, and you believe that it can actually happen,  and that you can do it! Through many trials and errors, you have made a decision to keep moving forward, no matter how treacherous the terrain.

Over the course of your life, you have come to realize that if you are going to be successful in your personal growth and self-help efforts, or in life in general  for  that  matter, resilience is, and always will be, a key factor!

Of course, some challenges are monstrous, and they demand that you treat them accordingly;  you must at some point, decide to assess the damage, make the necessary adjustments, get up, and keep moving toward your goals, a bit bruised perhaps, but much wiser,  and with a greater sense of self  as well as a stronger determination to succeed.

Success, I am sure you agree, demands the best from each of us; you and I  will always be able to give our best when resilience is a part of  the success strategies used.

So, I say to you: Learn the lesson(s) the challenge can teach you; get up, get back in the fight, stay the course. By doing so, you will become the self assured, competent, successful overcomer you were created to be.

What To Do Next?

* Write a comment and share with me some of your true life stories of resilience;

*Decide now that you will stay with your goals until they are achieved;

*Look for and learn the lesson(s) each challenge can teach you;

*Get the needed help as quickly as possible, and keep moving onward and upward toward your goal!

The Greatest Christmas Gift

This Christmas may be the perfect time to get back to the real meaning of the season. Doing so can be  as easy as giving of yourself, your time, in special ways, to your loved ones.
This gift from the heart won’t set you back financially, and won’t that be great during this grueling economy?

Although no money is needed, giving the greatest gift will require some thought on your part because you must decide how, the best way, to give of your time, and yourself to those you love, something that tells each person how glad you are to have him or her in your life.
Do you know your loved ones well, I mean really know them? If you do, your task is easy because you know exactly what makes each one feel special.

If you start now, you will have all the time you need to create those very best things that will literally rock their worlds!

Christmas is the time for sincerity and genuineness, the time to take off the masks we sometimes wear, without thought, more often than not.
By doing this, you will discover the true meaning of the season and realize again, perhaps, that the greatest gift you can give this Christmas (and the remaining 364 days) does not have to come with a huge price tag hanging from it to show those special people how much you love and value them.

What to do Next?

*Think of that special something that is important to each of your loved ones;

*Show each loved one how much you care this Christmas by giving each of them that something that does not cost anything but some of you, some of your time, some of your thoughtful creativity;

* Leave a comment that tells me how you’re going to make this Christmas special for each of your loved ones without the huge price tag.

Mistakes: Opportunities for Personal Growth

Mistakes, when viewed in the right perspective, can teach us much about ourselves.
Mistakes result from errors in judgment that lead to wrong or inappropriate actions which many times are very costly.
All of us,at some point in our lives, make mistakes,but dwelling on them merely to punish ourselves, or someone else,is not helpful or healthy.
Mistakes,when viewed in the right perspective, can teach us much about ourselves, and therefore they can promote giant leaps in our personal growth.
Over the years, I have learned valuable lessons from some of my mistakes.
Here are a few of them:
1. Saying “No” at the right time and for the right reason(s)can prevent costly mistakes and foster confidence;
2. Risk-taking,leaving the areas of comfort,increases chances of mistakes,but it also increases opportunities for personal development;
3. Each mistake,no matter how “terrible”, contains a valuable,needed lesson,if you look for it and learn it;
4. Making the same mistake repeatedly may mean you’re inattentive, especially to details;
5. Needing to be in control at all times increases the chances of mistakes.
Mistakes often provide the mirror needed to help us get a clearer more realistic view of ourselves,and when our
goal is continued personal development,we seek and take advantage of the lessons our mistakes can teach us.
1. Accept the role you played in the fallout resulting from the mistake(s);
2. Look for the lesson(s)the mistake(s)can teach you;
3. Decide to learn the lesson(s) quickly.
