Personal Resilience

Is it possible to become successful without learning how to be resilient?

Maybe ...

You can work hard despite not being very resilient, but you probably won't be very happy. You can get lucky. You might even reach certain heights driving yourself with negative thoughts and emotions. Some people attribute their success to the darker sides of themselves. The angry and hurt part of them fuels an intense motivation and spurs them on to achieve their goals. Some people slow down or just shut down.

Imposter Syndrome Insights

Self-Belief, Goal Setting and Locus of Control

Self-esteem is how we see our identity, self-belief is how we value our abilities. An overall feeling of confidence can transcend many of the challenges we’re faced with in our lives and career. Sometimes we do well, other times less well, but we can continue to believe that we will succeed in most things and in the long run. Positive self-belief creates a good impression on others and is a good predictor of success. It shows an ability to deal with setbacks and to accept both positive and negative consequences.

Limiting Beliefs

Limiting beliefs often originate from early childhood experiences and continue to develop as our subconscious mind absorbs messages from our environment, family, friends, teachers, and society. When we internalise feelings of inadequacy during our formative years, we can spend our entire adult lives believing we are not good enough and/or striving to prove our worth or to fit into a specific mould. Over time, we may forget or lose sight of our own values as we become susceptible to adopting other people's expectations.
