“Critical Mass Global we know that being an entrepreneur comes with ups and downs. Amidst the many upsides, a few downsides can occasionally occur because it’s life. This is where we place an importance on building resilience,” says Jherinson Almonte, managing director of Critical Mass Global. According to Jim Rohn’s article “7 Traits of the Most Resilient People,” he writes, “Resilience is the ability to return to the original form after being bent, stretched or compressed. It’s the ability to readily recover from illness, depression or adversity. How would you ever handle it if you lost everything you had today? What would your next step be? How long would you be depressed and upset and angry? What would it take for you to pull yourself up and start all over again? How resilient are you?Could you handle it? Could you learn from all of your disappointments and start all over again? What would it take? First, it would take a lot of self-discipline. It would take a lot of positive self-talk to muster up the energy to begin again.”
“Our representatives know that it takes of self-sufficiency to support yourself in emotional distress and negative situations. Whatever is happening with you presently, you can’t do anything about besides put on your strong attitude and tackle it one step at a mind,” says Jherinson Almonte, managing director of Critical Mass Global. Resilient people are excellent at many things because they know how to handle the negativity that is thrown at them and it’s something that is not taken for granted once they know how to battle it.
According to Rohn’s article some of the qualities resilient people have are:
“1. Resilience requires insight.
You need to develop the ability to ask yourself tough questions and answer honestly. If you had something to do with your loss, be honest and responsible for it.
2. Resilience is independent.
As a resilient person, you can count on yourself to bounce back into life.
3. Although resilience is independent, it’s also tied to others.
The more people you are responsible for, the greater your motivation to begin again—the stronger the reason, the stronger the action.
4. Resilience calls for initiative.
You need to develop the ability to take charge of the situation, to take charge of the problem. You need to stand up and do whatever is necessary to get back on course.”
“Some of these traits are what build after individuals learn to battle their demons from within. Once you can push through and set your goals, you can too have these resilient qualities,” mentions Jherinson Almonte of Critical Mass Global.
