Self Improvement and Why We Must Be Resilient

Every person who has ever actively worked on self improvement and bettering themselves and their lives has suffered many setbacks. The most successful people in the world did not become successful overnight. They will have suffered more disappointments, setbacks and even unmitigated disasters, than most people.

Successful people will definitely have made wrong decisions and expensive mistakes, and taken wrong turns on their journey to success. Things may have been going extremely well and they encountered events beyond their control, or made choices, which caused them to be lose everything they had built up.

It is extremely easy to try one or two things and give up if they dont work out. There is no doubt that when this happens, it is easy to question our abilities and ambitions, or think we were misguided in trying to a build a better life for ourselves and our family. Many people consider themselves failures when this happens and just retreat to their comfort zones.

However, its worth remembering that he only way we can guarantee we will never fail is to never try anything. Just think, if we never tried anything or gave up at the first or second hurdle, we wouldnt be able use our computers, drive our cars, play sports - or even read, walk and talk!

Successful people are also disappointed and affected by setbacks, and get knocked down more often than most. This may happen not once or twice, but dozens or even hundreds of times. But successful people refuse to stay down - because they are resilient and will not be denied their dreams and goals.

Resilience is essential, and self improvement experts offer techniques that can help develop this skill. Successful people know there are no failures because there are lessons to be learned from everything that happens to us, both good and bad.

In fact, it is usually our failures - what we learn from them and how we react to them - that build our character and determine our levels our success. The only real failure is to give up altogether or to give up too soon.
