Discover Your Inner Strengths
Discover your inner strengths to become more resilient. Resilient? Scratch that. Let’s call it anti-fragile, a term coined by Nassim Nicholas Taleb , a more accurate description, which recognises the pain and hurt we experience during tough times.
Yes, we do hurt! And, yes we do feel pain. You’ve taken a blow and now, you feel vulnerable and afraid. Working with me, or finding support is important to get through this hurt. However embracing the concept of ‘Antifragile’ is empowering and can help your ‘unlock and play to your inner-stregths’.
“Some things benefit from shocks; they thrive and grow when exposed to volatility, randomness, disorder, and stressors and love adventure, risk, and uncertainty. Yet, in spite of the ubiquity of the phenomenon, there is no word for the exact opposite of fragile. Let us call it antifragile. Antifragility is beyond resilience or robustness. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better.” – Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Embracing this concept unlocks strengths you may not even know about. It’s a mindset and pathway to personal improvement, confidence and responsibility.
It’s these traits that prove helpful in my coaching and marriage counselling. Clients can work through issues more calmly, and begin to regulate emotions better as they learn they are in control.
With more self awareness, you can mindfully work on changing habits and be focused on new inspiring healthy outcomes and results. It’s all about breaking the cycle.
You can find Nassims’s book on amazon. It’s been an interesting read and will be helpful for people to understand ‘change’ and ‘past trauma’ from a new perspective.
