Leadership Language – Be Resilient

How often do you quit when things get tough? Would you describe yourself as an unshakable optimist? Do you view problems as opportunities or warning signs? How do you view failure and are you making sure that you don’t make the one mistake people make when learning from their mistakes?

Things rarely work out the way you planned and there will always be distractions and stumbling blocks that you have to deal with while on the road to success. The key point to remember is to persist and to develop the courage to move on even when everyone around you is telling you its ok to give up. This does not mean stubbornly holding on to your original plan but rather continuing to pursue your goal as long as the reasons for doing so is still valid.

Make sure you know the ‘why’ of what you want.

When everything seems to be going wrong, keep in mind that the ‘road to success is paved with a thousand failures’ so each failure actually brings you closer to where you want to be ! Be Resilient.
