Most people strive to be the best that they could be. However, sometimes it is just too hard to get out of habits that have built up throughout a lifetime. If you are someone who is trying to build your resilience and optimise your performance, these tips will help you get started and keep going at becoming your personal best.
1) Try visualising your way to success. One of the quickest ways to reach your goals is by closing your eyes and imagining that you already have. Visualising your future success in vivid detail can help you to start feeling more successful right now. As a result, your behaviours and actions will change, reflecting a newfound confidence in your abilities. This confidence, coupled with a clear vision of what you want to achieve, will help you reach your goals with ease.
2) Prioritise your goals, and value the best things in your life. If you’re working towards specific ends, be sure to weigh its importance against other obligations in your life. This will enable you to develop a practical timeline for personal goals and encourages confidence in your successes. Success will taste so much sweeter if you make your goals manageable!
3) You cannot achieve tremendous resilience alone, as “no man is an island”. Your support system is absolutely essential, so make sure you have a great friends and people around you. You could hire a professional or consult people in your life that bear the qualities that you would like to develop.
4) Learn the power of saying “no” when you need to. This is not easy by any means, but it’s the only way to stay focused on the important things in your life. Saying yes to everything may result in the loss of ability to say yes to the best things. Say no more often and take back the control over your schedule and your life.
5) One way of achieving increased resilience is through identifying and correcting you principles. The way you act is determined by your principles. With this in mind, bad principles bring out bad attitudes. If you can improve on the good principles that you have, the better your attitude will become.
6) Acknowledge your flaws and mistakes. Don’t shy away from them for the sake of positivity. Willful ignorance will weaken you more than any flaw or mistake ever could. Positive change can come from examining your shortcomings and turning them into areas where you can learn and grow. People respect and trust someone who can admit when they’ve done wrong.
7) Take the time to change the focus of your conversation from your own accomplishments and awards to the achievements of those around you. People will appreciate your company more, and you will find new common points of interests between you and your friends.
As you can see, these tips will really help you on your path of improving your personal resilience. They will guide you in making the changes you need to make, to develop the new, improved and more resilient you. So don’t hold back anymore and just get started!
