High performers develop their resilience - their ability to adapt despite difficulties. In this episode, we talk about 3 ways to develop your resilience.
1) Have a short-term memory and see failure as helpful.
2) Develop the ability to regulate their emotions and choose positive emotions such as gratitude.
3) And be a tenacious optimist – always believing something good is going to happen.
High Performance Power Phrase this week: "I am resilient. I have the bounce back factor. I can adapt and recover."
