When you stand again, when you turn your crawl into a walk, and your walk into a run, and your run into a soar — when you do that, you liberate every single one of us witnessing you.
— Lisa Nichols

About The Video
Life can be challenging and overwhelming, sometimes to such an extent that we forget we can always rise again.
Moments will arrive in which you have to make the decision:
“Will I push past the obstacles, my resistance, that voice in my head that says, ‘I can’t’?”
If you feel like right now the answer to that question is “No,” take 4 minutes to watch the video above by transformational speaker Lisa Nichols, on resilience — it’s worth it.
Why Resiliency Is Our True Calling
“Resiliency is the thing you tap into when you hit a wall and nothing seems to be going the way you planned.” —Lisa Nichols
Accessing resiliency is something we can all do, but it’s something we often don’t think about until it becomes our only option.
We’re used to making plans for our lives. We decide what we want to pursue and create a path toward our goals.
But sometimes, despite our best efforts, our plans fall through.
We don’t get to where we want to go. We lose the relationship, or the job, or the opportunity we were hoping for.
At these times, it’s easy to give up. When the weight of the world is on your shoulders and you feel as if you’ve been defeated at every turn.
You’re tired. You’re frustrated. You want to throw in the towel.
But it’s at these moments that we discover who and what we truly are. And that’s where resiliency lies.
How To Cultivate Your Inner Resilience
When circumstances are at their worst, we must learn to look at these moments not as times of defeat, but as times of triumph. Because this is where the opportunity lies for us to rise.
“There’s a time in your life when you have to find something in you that you never thought you had,” explains Lisa. “You have to do something you never thought you’d do, because you know the man or woman you’re supposed to be is on the other side of that option.”
There are times we need to walk our paths alone, without the support of others. And this is where our true resilience is cultivated.
When you’re able to stick to your vision and your dreams despite the setbacks, despite the criticism, and despite the doubt from others and yourself – this is how we bounce back from defeat.
This is our opportunity to bring to the world our unique gifts and abilities.
You are the only person with your vision. No one else can do it for you. Nobody can do you better than you.
