Being Resilient Is Key To Becoming Successful

Being resilient is key to becoming successful in life.

Being resilient is having the strength to get back up whatever the situation. It is the capacity to  keep moving forward even when the future looks bleak. It is the ability to brave the storm and have the blind faith that somehow things will work out. Too often we believe that good things happen only to others. That is a limiting paradigm that needs to be replaced with a positive one. Good things happen to whoever believe that it can happen to her / him. Positive change takes place when someone shows resilience no matter the circumstances.

We are human beings so it is in our nature to sometimes be weak but when we fall, if we are given the opportunity to live another day, we must get back on our feet and fight to beat the odds.

When I discovered I was pregnant at 14, my immediate reaction was to be scared, run away, try to disappear… to avoid the pain… but God rescued me and gave me a second chance…that I took. Each day became a step towards a better life. It took me years, hard work and an unwavering strong faith to get from where I was to where I am now. I believed that I could make things work and I was resilient… it paid off. A message to my sisters going through a rough patch :

Be resilient, believe in yourself, believe in a better future, you will make it through, and as I always say, we all have a past but how it influences our present and our future is up to us.

This is an inspirational article that aims at helping you understand the importance of being resilient. Whatever your situation, you can turn your life around. I wish you a prosperous, blessed, peaceful and fruitful month of May.
