Last week, I attended the Startup Grind event held in Zurich and just like in the last editions, we got the audience relaxed and ready for the fireside chat with a REAL LIFE YOGA session. What keeps me coming back to each event is this wonderful capacity for resilience and optimism I can feel and recognise in each and every guest who has been interviewed. Resilience is a quality worth sharing and experiencing, whether you are in the entrepreneurial or corporate world. So if you haven’t already, make sure you join us for the next Startup Grind to experience what resilience is all about.
Resilience helps you to sustain a doer's mindset.
I am consciously not naming it “entrepreneurial” mindset, because this capacity to take action, over an over again without doubting that everything you undertake is worth trying, is a trait that should be fostered in the corporate world. Whatever ecosystem you work in, you’ll achieve much more if you let yourself the chance to try and learn at ever single step.
It reminds you of how serious or not you ought to take things.
You do not have to be a zen master, nor an advance meditation practitioner or yogi to detach yourself from the outcome of projects and business ideas. Just remind yourself that each task in your daily business life is worth being conducted with care and attention. Give it a chance and the best you can. This is realistically speaking all you can do and influence, the rest is out of your reach, so why blaming or stressing yourself and others?
Remind yourself that each task in your daily business life is worth being conducted with care and attention.
It helps you take responsibility.
Knowing what is your role and scope of action, what are the elements you can act upon and what you can make out of them - all of this falls into your responsibility. Knowing this, you can take full ownership of your decisions. Something didn’t work out although you gave your best? Well, you have learnt and can do better next time, or try it a bit differently. End of the story. Resilience is powerful tool for a sustainable business life and will keep you in the right place. One of a responsible and creative doer, enthusiastic learner and resourceful human being.
