Learning How to become more resilient – a lesson for us all

I wanted to start off 2018 with a lesson; something we could take with us and use throughout the year. Resiliency is being discussed everywhere you turn but are we getting the tools we need to achieve it? Shari Khan Resiliency expert(she doesn’t it like to be called that, but man she knows her stuff) discusses with me how we can not only obtain Resiliency but shares with us how we can sustain it even when life throws us a curve ball.


So, sit back relax grab a cup a tea or a glass of red(it’s 5 o’clock somewhere and enjoy}

    1. Thank you Marlynn – that’s really kind of you. All simple messages but ones we easily forget, I’m pleased it as helpful.

  2. Sounds like she has spent most of life developing what she has learned and is now sharing it with people.

    1. Hi Candy, thank you for dropping in your comment and I like the point you make. I don’t ‘get it right’ all of the time, even at my ripe old age and having spent (as you say) most of my life developing these skills, you might think I would. I really have learnt to be kinder to myself and when I make mistakes, I congratulate myself for being brave rather than putting myself down – then I carry on.

      It feels like a total privilege to share what I’ve learnt through life (and backed up by study) with others :).

  3. What a positive message she communicates! I really loved the idea of being your best self and of looking within, rather than relying on others to define what that “best” might be.

    1. Hey there Kyla, seriously I live like this (it must be a nightmare for some people around me!).

      It is the most freeing feeling – not needing the approval of others to justify your actions. It’s great when others approve and support you, ofcourse it is, but not needing it – that’s a liberating feeling.

      What an amazing world if more of us would choose to live like this.

  4. This is definitely a lesson that we all can learn still.

    1. It certainly is, and it’s never too late to start as Andrea says in the interview. For anyone wanting to commit or re-commit to building their resiliency skills TODAY is the perfect time.

  5. Resilience is so important! This is definitely something that I want to work on this year!

    1. Hi Aireona and thanks for commenting. And yes, of course I agree with you about the importance of resilience. I say that when we aren’t feeling resilient it’s like being on shaky ground. Doesn’t feel good and it doesn’t feel safe.

      Great to hear that you’re committing to build up your reservoir. Download my free eBook – it will definitely help you get started.
      But if you need more support do take a look at my online course that starts in a couple of weeks time.

  6. This is great! I love hearing interviews. Thank you 🙂

    1. Thank you for listening :).

      Andrea has a wonderfully natural style of interviewing – it was a pleasure to be invited to speak.

  7. I love the concept behind this! I used to struggle with putting myself first, and prioritizing the important stuff/Not stressing over everything both at work and in my personal life. I think that her advice can apply to any situation!

    Posted on 01/16/2018 at 4:04 am
    1. Yes, yes, yes Cassandra! The advice can absolutely be applied to any situation.

      This life doesn’t have to be as stressful and complicated as we often make it.
      But you look too young to have figured that out already. Kudos to you!

      Posted on 01/16/2018 at 2:09 pm
  8. Very insightful video with excellent advice. Thank you

    Posted on 01/16/2018 at 5:10 am
    1. Awh – thank you so much Tina.

      I just want life to be so much easier for so many people – it is one of my deepest wishes.

  9. It’s interesting to arrive at this post today, because my focus for the new year is change and growth. Flexibility and resiliency seem to naturally be parts of this process. And it’s important to remember it’s better to bend than to break. I always picture trees like the willow that bend, flex, and sway in the wind – compared to harder or older trees that tend to snap and lose branches or even break their trunks during windstorms. I’d rather be the willow!

    1. Good luck with your focus this year Lee on change and growth.

      I love your analogy of the willow compared to harder, seemingly stronger trees (the Oak comes to mind).
      Being flexible in life, and having an ease with this sounds like a great thing to aim for.

  10. Thanks for sharing this, great tips..its something I need to work on!


    Posted on 01/17/2018 at 7:50 pm
    1. I think that’s the thing Valerie, this work of building our resilience is never done. We just need to find a gentle balance of adding to our reservoir each day. And making it an enjoyable thing to do :).

  11. With this high pressure life I think we all need to become more resilient. Thank you, I have bookmarked to come back later

  12. This is so important. I’ve never had a thick skin, but becoming more resilient has had many benefits, especially at work.

    Posted on 01/19/2018 at 10:04 pm
    1. Definitely, becoming more resilient has benefits for us and those we interact with in life. And with the mounting pressures on us in the world of work, we do need to become more resilient.

      But Tiffany I’m not sure I’d say that necessarily means you have to become ‘thick-skinned’. For me, becoming ‘thicker skinned’ has a negative connotation, whereas becoming more resilient has a more positive meaning – ‘becoming stronger from the inside’ is how I describe it.
