Resilience Tips: Respond to change with confidence and
flexibility, Don’t sweat the small stuff, Perform well with the big stuff,
Recover from setbacks and move on.

was the topic yesterday at a presentation as well as MindStore’s tools and
techniques to develop Resilience. The night before was the State of Origin
decider and I had thoughts to mention the Blues Resilience as they were going so
well, until the last 5 minutes. So I had to adapt and change as a result of the
morning I noticed how windy it was today and that the palm trees just flex with
the wind, whereas the larger trees resisted the wind. This got me thinking about
the recent tornados struck in the USA, houses were ripped out of their
foundations and all that was left were the palm trees in the front yards.
made me think we are like that, we attempt to weather the winds of change, to be
inflexible to changes and to resist them with all our energy, until it is too
much for us and we break. Why put oursleves through this, look at natures palm
trees and how they adapt to the changing winds. Once the winds abate they just
pop right up straight again and continue to flourish.
when you are faced with unexpected hurricaine winds, that destroy your
confidence and force challenging situations on to you.  Remember be like a
parachute, open your mind, then flexibly adapt to the changes around you and be
like a palm tree.
said “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we
created them.” so if your current approach to a situation no longer works,
discover how to learn to think differently. Being Resilient gives you the
ability to quickly adjust your actions and respond with confidence to the new
