Resilience: You Can’t Have Up’s without Down’s

hire a motivational speakerThe unpredictably of life sucks. One minute you seem to be riding high and the next moment you ‘re torn up by stress. Transformation is an inevitable process, just like the sun will set, it will rise again.

Most people gravitate towards comfort and security. However, this may not be our natural state. Ups and downs are always a part of life; downs follow most of our ups. When there is a dip or low moment, we hit bottom, and there is no direction but up. Even the markets suggest a flat market eventually turns upwards.

I once heard a motivational speaker suggest that grief is the price you pay for love. Just like for many people, ebbs and flows of relationships keep them alive.

Survival of the fittest suggests humans are wired to react to sudden change and either flight or flight. We weren’t meant to sit peacefully for years on end without evolving. We need fear to shake things up and eventually develop into calm and contentment. We need quiet to rest us and prepare for the next upset.

Don’t let the fear of the unknown get the best of you. Know that evolution is not optional, it’s what makes life worth living

Some tips to help you and your team move forward in change:

Just get on with it. Instead of expending so much energy worrying and fretting over things, funnel that energy into doing, not stressing.

Remember the low times help you be grateful for what you have (or had)

You can’t have ups without downs. Ups without downs give you nothing to compare. Life would be bland and vanilla, instead of vibrant and colorful.

Don’t question the downs because it can make you a victim of your circumstances. Instead, think of the down times as revealing lessons and helping you change paths. Downs make you more resilient, once you reach a bottom you know you survived and can do it again.

Accept what you can’t change. Their is a difference between problems you can solve and circumstances you need to manage. A problem you can solve

Forgive yourself, the circumstances and others.
