To teach our children the power of resilience is the hardest thing in the world. I’ve been a teacher 20 years, I’ve owned companies, businesses and written books, spoken in front of thousands of people. But still my skin is thin. I’m sensitive. I enter each project with my heart on my sleeve and it’s too my detriment.
But still after all these years, I let the smallest thing affect me, so how can I teach resilience when I’m not at all.
I guess the thing to remember is that on some days, life will be hard. It will be tough. If you walk away on those days, if you walk away, then you’ll never see the fruits of your labour.
Don’t walk away.
Someone once told me. “Be yourself, that’s all that you can be.” If they don’t like you, then it’s their problem.
Don’t hurt people’s feelings, try your best, work hard and try to help where help is required.
You can rest your head on the pillow at night, knowing you did your best and that you’re trying to make a difference.
