Why Resilient People are Always Mindful

Resilience is the ability to bounce back from adverse situations. Some people seem naturally good at this, while others really struggle to get past tough situations.

“According to a study by Brevet, 80% of sales require an average of five follow-ups in order to close the deal. However, 44% of sales reps follow up with a prospect only once before giving up. After four follow-ups, 94% of salespeople have given up.” (Source – HubSpot)

One important factor that resilient salespeople, coaches, or business owners have on their side is that they are almost always mindful.

4 Reasons Why Resilient People are Always Mindful

1. They know how to cope with their emotions.

To be resilient, you have to know how to cope with your emotions. If not, it is easy to feel overwhelmed by the situation and trapped by your own emotions. Whenever you feel that your emotions are too much, it is often impossible to bounce back with resilience.

Resilient people know that being mindful of their feelings is how they are able to cope with them. They practice mindfulness to stay in touch with their feelings and act accordingly.

2. They know and accept their limits.

Even though resilience is being able to bounce back, knowing your limits is a large factor contributing to resilience. If you don’t know or accept your limits, your stress and anxiety can continue to compound on itself, making it impossible to move on with your life.

Resilient people know that they must understand and accept their limits. They use mindfulness to stay in touch with how they feel and what they think about their lives. This allows them to accept their limits and quickly bounce back from whatever situation they find themselves in.

3. They are creative.

To bounce back from any situation, you have to be creative. Without creativity, there is no way to think of new ideas, goals, or strategies for changing your life.

For this reason, resilient people are highly creative. They use mindfulness training and other strategies to further their mind so they can see situations holistically. As a result, this allows them to be creative and bounce back stronger than before. 

4. They are good problem solvers.

Part of being creative is being a good problem solver as well. To bounce back from any situation, you have to use your creativity to problem solve your way to a new destination and outcome.

Resilient people know that mindfulness helps them boost problem-solving abilities. As a result, they practice mindfulness in order to enhance their problem-solving abilities and bounce back with a new strategy for tackling the problem.
