As Billy Ocean sang in his 1985 dance floor filler hit, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going” but what is it that enables the “tough” to get going?
We all admire the fundamental qualities that we see in people who demonstrate persistence and tenacity in the face of adversity these qualities that we often roll up into one word that seems to sum up their ability to endure and succeed where others fail… RESILIENCE.
In this session we will explore not only the subject of resilience, what it is, what it is not, and what impacts our ability to demonstrate it, but we will also understand exactly where it comes from, (it’s not what you think) and how we can empower it and harness it to shield us from the circumstances of life that sometimes knock huge dents into our suits of armour that protect our vulnerable self-image, our self-esteem and our self-belief.
Today, never more so, we need to be able to not just bounce back from the hard knocks of life and the adverse circumstances that seem to gallop over the horizon towards us, but we need to be able to bounce forward. To meet them head-on in a much tougher suit of Kevlar plated armour with the wonderful momentum that “persistent resilience” propels us with. So, join us and let’s get going.
- You will understand that you are tougher than you think – you always have been!
- You will understand the power of your magic genie – yes, you have one!
- You will understand how to suit up and let your persistent resilience shine.
