How to Gain Resilience and Personal Power

by Diane Wing, M.A.

Nothing stays the same. Change is inevitable. The wheel of the life turns and the way we weather the change is the key to finding our destiny. The natural rhythm of life ebbs and flows, waxes and wanes. Life has its ups and downs. There are times when we build toward a goal and a time to rest. There are times when we need a standstill to contemplate what has gone before and what is yet to come.

Nature has its seasons, with each giving a specific energy. Spring is for new growth; Summer is the season of fulfillment; Autumn is the time when we shed the old; Winter is a time to withdraw, study, and meditate. The seasons represent natural cycles and changes in life as well as in nature.

These shifts are necessary for our health and ability to achieve. If we were in a continuous building phase, there would be no completion. If we were always at rest, nothing would be done. If we were in a constant state of fulfillment, it would produce complacency. If we were always shedding, there would come a time when there was nothing left.

Despite the discomfort many of us have with change we can choose to accept the change and look for the opportunities held within it or we can resist and cultivate a life of struggle. The desire and intention toward what we want in life drive us to honor the wheel of life or to reject it. By embracing the turning wheel of change, we amass the wealth of experience and possibly financial wealth in the process. Those who respond to market changes do the best with investing and business. When we embrace the new personal circumstance, we gain resilience and personal power.

It is our destiny to navigate life and environmental changes. We develop ourselves along the way and expand our knowledge and self-awareness in the process. The strength we gather during shifts allows us to explore the world and evolve cultivates resilience. When we have the ability to bounce back from unwanted or unexpected change, we can better cope with all types of transformations. For that is truly what change is, a transformation or transition between one state and the next.

When you consider the purpose of the current transformation, then you move beyond the emotional reaction and enter an objective state of mind, where we can see the lesson and benefit thereby.  Take a moment to think about where you are on the wheel and what transitions are coming into your life. Breathe into the shift and allow yourself to open to the possibilities the changes bring.
