[3-Minute Read] Resilience: A superpower for entrepreneurs

You know that it's hard to keep going when things don't work out as an entrepreneur. But, when you are resilient, you can continue to bounce back.

Maintaining a positive attitude enables you to maintain resilience in the face of failure and draws on three components: knowing that things will eventually work out; self-efficacy (the belief that it is up to you to make things work); and hope (the idea that things will work out).

Did you know that there are days when even the most successful business has to deal with tough customer service situations? For example, a client might turn down your offer because they have signed up for another similar product. If this happens, how do you handle the situation? Do you feel anxious and down, or do you remain calm? What will you do?

The solution is resilience. You need to become resilient so that these situations won't knock you off track and make them stop being a problem for you. With resilience, they can even become opportunities!

When facing adversity, individuals with high levels of resilience know themselves better than others; understand what they need to achieve their goals; have good coping skills; view challenges as opportunities for growth; and seek out opportunities rather than avoid them.

How do you become more resilient? There are three goals to resilience:

  • Acknowledge failure and move on.
  • Learn from what happened so you can do better next time.
  • Identify what went wrong to fix it.

Setbacks can be disheartening at the time, but they can also be a wake-up call to success. When you are resilient, you can take those setbacks and learn from them, so they aren't stumbling blocks. 

Building resilience starts with trying new things. When a plan doesn't work out, identify what went wrong so you can fix it next time! Be the person who never gives up and encourages others to do the same thing. That's the secret of building resilience: knowing that it's essential; being willing to jump in and try it out; learning from mistakes as you go; never giving up.

Here are some additional tips on how to become more resilient in life and business.

1. Know that it will get better - You have to know even when you feel like giving up, the situation will eventually get better. As long as you want to get better, things will all work out in the end.

2. See yourself on the path - you need to know that even when the situation gets worse, you have to take a step back and look at yourself on your way to success.

3. Take action - Many people tend to let things that are happening get them down, but you have to realize that you will never get anywhere until you take action. As long as you keep working hard, things will all work out in the end.

Finally, by developing a resilient attitude, you can handle any setback. Remember that resilience is an attitude, and your attitude guides your actions. Even if one plan does not work out, you can always try a new strategy. You have to believe that everything will turn out okay in the end.
