What is resilience? I had the pleasure to kickstart the conversation with fellow coach and friend Lucie Tesarova, for her series of interviews on resilience.
- my own experience with dealing with difficult times
- why I think resilience is always already present
- how this understanding fundamentally changed the way I go about living my life and making decisions
Like so many people, I used to look for ways to change my behavior: this only increased my lack of confidence and self doubt. It is only after I started to truly trust myself that I was able to trust others, and therefore trust life. And once I found my own deep sense of clarity, love, and inner knowing, I discovered resilience was already there as well.
The video below is part of Lucie Tesarova's Elephant Project, an exploration of different approaches to important themes. Her first topic is Resilience and this is the first video in the series, enjoy.
And this is the poem by Rumi we mention - it is called The Guest House.
