Read Stuart Taylor’s Story of personal resilience which I find professionally and personally inspiring.
Stuart’s Story – a tale of four hats
He see’s with the power of hindsight that there are twelve “pillars of resilience” he has drawn on as fundamental realisations in his recovery and continued growth. They are:
1. Focus on what you can control and ignore what you can’t
2. All fear‐based emotions (including stress) are due to a negative forecast of an imaginary future based on past experience. Stay in the present!!
3. When in doubt, breathe out. domain analysis . Take time to chill out.
4. Without physical energy, there is no resilience
5. Resilience is armed by positivity (of emotions and thoughts) and humour
6. Perfectionism and over-‐caring are the natural enemies of resilience
7. Life is not fair
8. It is not the environment that causes your emotions and behaviours; it is what you believe about the environment. We always have choices
9. Physical, emotional and cognitive resilience can be used for good or evil; it is how we put our spirit into action that leads to sustainable resilience in self and others.
10. Resilience is a team sport, not an individual sport. Compassion through healthy relationships, leadership and connection is the key.
11. Playing to our strengths leads to stress mastery, confidence, performance, happiness & resilience
12. Mindfulness of body, heart, mind and spirit gives us the opportunity to make better choices.
