Every thing I read about resilience tells me how its most important quality is the ability to bounce back from tough stuff. That is definitely the traditional definition of the term but in my book, The Resilience Advantage and for other resilience thought leaders the idea of resilience is now expanding to focus on how we prepare for these challenges, navigate them in real time, and use those experiences for new learnings or how we “bounce forward.”
As you begin to think about your goals for 2016 consider that you can deal with your life in a more graceful and easy manner. Imagine how your 2016 could be if you found yourself, your workplace, and your home less pressure filled and more open to the experiences the year and your life have to offer.
Best wishes for a happy, healthy, and resilient new year.
