Think about some of the noticeably resilient people you
know or know of from the news.
Donald Trump has exhibited great resiliency in his career.
Before him, Conrad Hilton incredibly resilient and his
autobiography, Be My Guest, is a study in resiliency.
The late Steve Jobs after he was forced to resign from Apple
formed NeXT, a computer workstation designed for educators
which also failed. Proving to be remarkably resilient,
his company was sold to Apple, where Jobs transformed the
company that let him go into the biggest consumer technology
company in the world.
The late Dame Anita Rodderick started her cosmetics company,
The Body Shop with two neighboring funeral parlors who opposed
her naming her company The Body Shop. Showing resiliency,
she fought back by representing herself in the media as a
businesswoman under constant attack. So many people
sympathized with her that the publicity helped her generate so
much traffic that she opened 700 more stores.
Everybody has an experience of resiliency. There are times in your
past when you have been resilient…
As a child, when you fell over trying to ride your bicycle,
did you get right back on?
In Little League, did you miss an easy fly ball,
but play again the next day and stop a difficult line
drive to win the game?
Were you ever told you lacked talent in a particular area,
and then proved your critic wrong?
In your business, did you rebound from a very disappointing
experience, get beat out of an account by a competitor and secure
an even bigger account?
Recall every example of resiliency from your past and present
them all to your self-image at once. Then tell yourself:
“Look, I’ve been pretty resilient throughout my life.
I clearly have the ability to bounce back quickly. Now I’m going
to strengthen and emphasize this characteristic.
I’m the kind of person who takes a hit and bounces back up, stronger
You can be like that Eveready bunny; you just keep
going and going and going. Or the old Timex watch slogan; it takes
a licking and keeps on ticking.
Plug all those pictures into your self-image and re-program
yourself for resiliency. When you do, you’ll not only
set yourself up to win, to continue winning time and time again.
