On Resilience

Reading Time:  minutes

Imagine riding a rollercoaster blindfolded.

That’s the challenging solopreneur life, a real-life test of resilience that we all experience.

Here’s why my rollercoaster matters to you…

My year kicked off with two weeks ill in bed and no work, followed by a two-week battle with back pain that made sitting difficult.

Then, my much-loved dog Duke’s diagnosis of a liver tumour this week was a bolt out of the blue.

That was a gut-punch moment.

These challenges have taught me the value of self-care, the importance of pacing and helped me practice emotional agility.

Despite this, I feel emotionally resilient. I’ve practised directing my thoughts and managing my reactions.

They say to take control – not of what happens but your responses.

By practising directing my thoughts and reactions, I’ve honed my ability to remain focused and resilient.

It’s not about stifling feelings; it’s still showing up in those raw moments and giving my all when needed.

In my Heroic Coach training, I learned that Obstacles Make Me Stronger.

That’s now my mantra when life becomes a rollercoaster.

Then I do a bit of targeted thinking and accept the current situation, identify what I want and then ask what I can do now… and do it.

Sure, it’s tough. But embracing the challenge on my hardest days has strengthened my commitment.

This isn’t just about surviving; it’s about thriving in adversity, just like in business.

Resilience is an indispensable skill in business.
