Week 15 – P’ing on Stress: The 12 P’s of Resiliency – Part 1

Standard

“Life doesn’t get easier or more forgiving, we get stronger and more resilient.” ― Steve Maraboli

 

Resiliency is defined as: “an object’s ability to return to its original shape or position”. Another definition of resiliency is: “the ability to remain competent under stress.” Successful people are peak performers. One of the key factors in “peak performance”, which is the ability to perform at our best all of the time, is resiliency. Top athletes are peak performers. They stay “game ready” all of the time. Athletes bounce back after losses. They keep their head in the game, and they stay in shape. They take advantage of opportunities as they arise. Success of any kind requires us to be “game ready” all of the time.

Week 14 – Thousands of Mini Adjustments: Becoming a Life-Tacker!

Standard

“The same wind that blows us off course can turn and carry us home.” – Tiffany Reisz

Did you know that sailboats and airplanes are off course approximately 99% of the time? Because of the way a sailboat must work with wind to move, it is impossible for a sailboat to sail in a straight line. A sailboat moves through a process called “tacking”. Tacking is a process of deliberately over shooting a target in one direction, then “coming about” to over shoot it the target in the other direction, then coming about again. The sailboat reaches its destination through a process of zig zaging its way towards its destination. Something similar is true for airplanes. Both sailboats and airplanes are off course most of the time, yet they manage to reach their destinations through thousands of mini adjustments.
