BATTERED, NOT BEAT - RESOLVE TO BE RESILIENT [INBOUND 2014]

1,222 views

According to Dr. Jean Twenge, research shows that great predictors of life fulfillment and success are perseverance, resiliency, and reality-testing — qualities that people need so they can navigate day-to-day life. Everyone faces hardships, but it's how we deal with life's disappointments that truly test our spirit. Entrepreneurs, especially, need to learn resilience and perseverance in order to be successful. At home and at work, challenges arise that can make us feel like we simply can't go on. Some are more serious and impactful than others (childhood abuse vs losing a job, for example), but all these experiences stick with us in one way or another. While every experience helps shape who we are, we all have a choice - you can either let your negative experiences define you, or define how you face and overcome your negative experiences. Christine Perkett will share stories on some of the curveballs she's been thrown both personally and professionally, how she continues to move forward despite them, and share tips on how you can, too.
