Our culture focuses on two outcomes, winning and losing. We were taught from the time we were children that those two outcomes define a moment, a day, a year or even a life time. Many of us are still lamenting over a moment where we lost or failed and it still carries a sting as if it happened yesterday. If we have not learned from it and moved on, it hinders us. That moment does not serve to inspire us, it make us insecure, shrink and miss out on the lesson it brought. It is time to put that moment in its rightful place, in the past and create new moments that offer growth, opportunity and the courage to fall...but get back up.

    Song of the Month:




    Where there is desire there is gonna be a flame 
    Where there is a flame 
    someone's bound to get burned 
    But just because it burns doesn't mean you're gonna die 
    You've gotta get up and try try try 
    Gotta get up and 
    try try try

    Resilience means to persevere and be diligent in the face of setbacks.  It is a word that carries so much weight because it takes a piece of your heart to do it.    It requires that you push past your stories and challenge your beliefs.  It requires that you continue to see the little beam of light at the end of a very long tunnel.  But the beautiful thing is that resilience is your key to moving forward.  It is another way of saying hope.   Hope has no limits and can create opportunities where none existed before.  Resilience leads to hope, hope leads to faith and faith leads to things we thought were impossible. 

    How do you move to resilient? 

    • Get clear on what you want to achieve and describe it in such detail that you can smell, hear and see it.  You can almost taste it.  Make it real and create the desire to want it so bad that temporary setbacks and hurdles will not stop you. 
    • Surround yourself with inspirational people who have the spirit you want.  They live the 'resilient' way you want to live.  Learn what they know, do what they do.
    • Music - there is nothing like a great song to inspire you to keep going.  Find one that becomes your mantra for 'rising up'!
    • Challenge the thinking that is keeping you stuck.  Don't beat yourself up.  Reflect, understand and do the work to move forward.

    I am not saying it is easy to move to resilient.  It is not, but it is so rewarding when you get up after a fall and take even the smallest step.  Marry resilience with courage and it is a winning combination that can take you anywhere!  As Dr. Seuss says, "Oh the places you will go".  Pretty soon, you will not fear the fall and you will definitely not tolerate staying on the floor.  You will rise.
