What does it mean to be resilient ?
To be resilient it is to keep going when you want to stop. To be resilient means to understand adversity is going to happen but your persistence must continue. To be resilient means to connect to the higher power in you and that you are more than a conqueror. To be resilient does not mean that you won't experience hardship' it does not mean you will not experience pain, hurt, disgust, anger,defeat or any other negative emotion.Resiliency is an evolutionary tool embedded in our beings to keep going despite the circumstances.
When it comes to resiliency, our generation poses as a unique case. Our generation has been was raised in the midst of a technology boom, and has been infected with an idea of instant gratification. As dreamers, we imagine a life for ourselves. To obtain what we want, millennials often have a, "I'm going to snap my finger, and bam!, type of thinking. We think about the most simplest & quickest method, without considering the pain or struggle.
in reality we know life is not like a computer; it is not like a fast food restaurant. You can't get what you want instantly. You're not going to be the person you want to be instantly. Everyone is going to go through a different process and whatever your process may be, it is perfectly fine. You will fall. You will rise, but you will never fail unless you quit and never quit unless you want to experience regret.
Whatever it is you want, don't quit because your persistence and faith will eventually pay off.
Don't think about the standards of society. There are always people willing
to go the distance and do more and inadvertently break those standards at one moment. At one moment a light bulb was inconceivable. You might not have big dreams and that's OK but whatever you want in your life, don't let go of the possibility. People only know what they know; they don't know what they don't know which means there's a whole realm of possibility out there.
Never stop. Never Quit. Live your life for you, with strong blinders and a great heart!
