I write this blog post, carefully considering the content, because I want to make sure you are provided with relevant and helpful information that will empower you to intentionally grow your resilience and enhance the quality of your life and relationships.
For over a decade I have been coaching individuals to help them improve the quality of their lives, careers, relationships, and spiritual health. The challenge I have noticed consistently is, if a client’s output exceeds their input, then the consequence can be devasting to relationships and life satisfaction.
It was nearly ten years ago that I began to study the power of intentional resilience building and the role it plays in greater life satisfaction, the ability to remain relational when experiencing difficulties or hardships and the link between emotional and physical health. Clients who were willing to commit to expanding their resilience were clients who consistently reached their coaching goals and went on to live their best lives.
Today our world is a different place and most of us face greater adversity, crises, or stress than we ever have. Each household seems to be adversely affected by the various circumstances, but one thing remains certain; we are all human with physical and emotional limits that could be nearing all time lows after the layering of negative experiences in our world, let alone the relational interactions happening within each household.
After contemplation and listening, I have decided to focus the content of my 2022 blogposts on the value of intentional resilience building and its positive results. Each blogpost will contain information about the various stages of resilience building and will include a practical exercise that you can include in your daily routines. I promise to keep them simple and reproducible. Consider sharing them with your family or with your team members.
For now, let’s start with this.
Your ability to adapt to distress is essential if you are to have a productive, meaningful, and satisfying life. See the Life Satisfaction Assessment link on my website, by clicking here, for more details about this.
I encourage you to complete this Assessment before we continue. In my next post, I’ll share more about the role of Resilience in our lives.
