Resilience is a Lifestyle
Contrary to the popular belief, resilience is not just a “mental skill,” it’s much more than that.
Think of some of the world's highest performers: in sport, business, and life these individuals are resilient.They’re resilient in their daily work, they’re resilient in their relationships, they’re resilient in their performances; resilience is a lifestyle, not a mental skill.
At Molliteum, based on our research and anecdotal studies, we’ve found there to be four areas of resilience, or what we call the Resilience Way of Life. The goal is simple: make sure that these areas of life are in check in order to better your resilience.
You can’t have one without the other; resilience is a holistic approach.
You can’t be resilient if you don’t know who you want to become; you can’t be resilient without a Success Identity. A Success Identity is a combination of your vision, mission, and purpose in life. Without these, without a true identity away from performance, one won’t have the right motivation or drive to accomplish what they want. At Molliteum we start by helping you understand your true Success Identity before we focus on performances.
The most resilient individuals in the world trust in themselves, and their skills; they have certainty in knowing that they can execute tasks successfully and efficiently. It’s knowing that you can execute instead of just hoping that you can execute.
The most resilient individuals in the world optimize their lifestyle; think, if you’re lacking energy to get through your day, then how can you have the energy to adapt to adversity? Sleep, nutrition, work rate, and general health must all be addressed to be able to dominate.
The most resilient individuals possess the ability to filter out the noise and lock-in to the task at hand. Regardless of what happens, they stay focused on their own task. Being able to place your focus, and selectively choose when to turn on, or off, your performance mindset is essential.
The most resilient individuals in the world are able to adapt; they have the ability to pivot without hesitation or doubt. They know that no matter what is thrown at them, they can make it work.
