Five steps for successful resilience

It is time to explore and prepare for a resilient life — one that bounces back and keeps on going.

Resilience is a frame of mind. Once you make a decision to change your life, beware. All of the issues that have you feeling the way you do will present themselves in full force.

Stay strong and focused. All will be well. You decided to make a change because you were not happy, peaceful, abundant or secure. Whatever the reason, stay the path, and stay strong.

Here are some steps to help you:

  1. Write down your plan.
  2. Review your plan for affirmative words and actions.
  3. Date your plan — the universe is very literal.
  4. Take a few minutes each day to read your plan. Can you feel the vibrations of success? If you cannot, revise your plan. Your senses have a way of telling you what is possible and what is not.
  5. Think about what you will do once your plan is realized.

I want to reflect a bit about step #5: Many people do not realize their absolute right to success because of internal fears. Some are even afraid that they will have nothing else to strive for. Give yourself a gut check. Are you ready for the next step?

It is time to explore and prepare for a resilient life — one that bounces back and keeps on going.
