Rising Again When We Fall
What does it mean to be resilient?
We all face adversity in life. The question is, how will you respond to it? Will you learn to be resilient? Will you learn to thrive or merely survive?
I found myself challenged to be resilient as I learned to overcome years of emotional and sexual abuse by my father. At 19, I left home without a job, a car, or even a high-school diploma. I left behind the father who abused me for years, forced me to play the role of a wife, and shared me with other men. I also left behind the mother who would later tell me it was all my fault.
Learning to be resilient was one of the most important survival skills I learned. Rising again after being knocked down is critical to our success in life – personally and professionally. How to rise again is one of the principles I share in my new book, Beyond Bound and Broken, releasing in April, 2016. (Download the first chapter for FREE NOW!)
We all face adversity in life at some point. The question is, how will we respond? As Nelson Mandela said, “The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”
We all fall. The question we have to ask ourselves is, “Will I get up again?”
