Faced with adversity, whereas others may give up on their dreams, Resilient People experience momentary defeat and then they rebound with renewed energy and determination ANYWAY.
Resilient People are born on the same planet, too. They, too, are made of flesh and blood. Resilient People also fall down, they have failures, and they may be misunderstood as well as envied. They have their fair share of calamities yet they go on staying upbeat ANYWAY.
Plants survive through cracks in asphalt. A sunflower does the right thing that comes naturally: it turns towards sunlight. In the process of doing the right thing, Resilient People, too, find a path to reach for the sun. Their survival skills get a booster shot with each adversity.
Resilient People learn, readjust and carry on implementing their visions and dreams ANYWAY!
As a Clinical Psychologist and Creativity Consultant, through professional and personal experiences, I find that building resilience while doing the right thing ANYWAY is a winning practice. Within this perspective, read The Paradoxical Commandments by Dr. Kent M. Keith and share them with others. This is teaching par excellence fitting well with staying upbeat.
The Paradoxical Commandments
By Dr. Kent M. Keith
People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered. Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives. Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway.
The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds. Think big anyway.
People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs. Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway.
People really need help but may attack you if you do help them. Help people anyway.
Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you have anyway.
