Widen Your Perspective – Resilience

We recently came back from a fabulous adventure in Nepal and Tibet – a Mountain High adventure with a small group of like minded clients who, like me, had a trip to Mount Kailash and Lake Mansarovar on their bucket list !

There’s nothing quite like spending time in nature to invigorate the mind and body, give us a totally new perspective and reinforce our resilience .

Vast open spaces and majestic mountains have the power to dissolve ego’s. Worries rapidly shrink and eventually disappear…. and if you are a creative type ideas come flooding in !

Mountains become molehills….. how to put things in perspective.

*Martin Seligman formulated six great questions to ask ourselves to put an event into perspective:

  1. What is the worst thing that can happen?
  2. What is one thing I can do to help stop the worst from happening?
  3. What is the best thing that can happen?
  4. What is one thing I can do to make this best thing happen?
  5. What is the most likely thing that will happen?
  6. What can I do to handle the most likely thing, if it happens?

We can’t control everything that happens our life, however , we can control how we react to it. I highly recommend stepping back to take in the big picture from a bird’s eye / mountain top point of view. What’s the worst that can really happen?

” Everything will be alright in the end and if it’s not alright it’s not the end “
