I know many people who are inherently smart, caring, resourceful, and great people, who have become accomplished doctors, lawyers, CEOs, business owners and entrepreneurs, but they don't feel as good as they should.
They're chronically stressed, feel tired all of the time, suffer from anxiety, too often feel down and depressed, drink regularly to cope, or are just not enjoying their life.
They feel like they're doing everything right, but internally they don't feel good.
Does this resonate?
If you struggle with feeling consistently good in your life, and your work, family, or friends often dictate how well you feel, I've written this blog for you.
Feeling consistently good in your life requires resilience
Resilience isn't necessarily about how "strong" you are, it's about how much resources you have to deal with in life. This is not something we’ve been taught at school. How our mind works, what we need to handle life's challenges and feel good, and have peace of mind despite real life.
Society tells us that if we just accomplish at high levels, things should sort themselves out. That we should automatically feel great, accomplished, worthy, loved, and all of the things that we deep down want to feel. Unfortunately, this is not often the case.
Feeling good and steady in your life requires resilience. Resilience refers to the capacity to cope with adversity and quickly bounce back. In order for you to have resilience, a few things need to be in place. That’s what we’ll cover here.
I will share with you a holistic view of what creates the majority of your stress and overwhelming feelings. Why it's so hard for you to handle what's happening in your life, despite you trying to do everything right. Then, we'll dive into some practical solutions for how you can become more resilient.
This is knowledge that you can use to drastically change and optimize the state of your mental and emotional health, and help buffer you in the face of the difficulties of life. This way you can constantly feel good and steady.
Hold on tight because we're going to the root of it all!
Your body and mind have basic needs
Much like building a home, building your well-being and resilience requires the right knowledge and material. We need to make sure that we have the essentials in place before we start to build. And if we don’t check off ALL of the essentials, we run the risk of major problems and everything can come crashing down in a blink of an eye. In fact, we can’t even feel safe without all the essentials in place.
