A Message From Kim...
Kim Parker, President

What do Good Business Leaders & FBI Agents Have in Common?

Did your biggest competitor just expand into your territory? Have two of your best employees recently retired? Did February’s financials go into the red? Successful business leaders and entrepreneurs know that success requires the resilience to keep moving ahead even when confronted with obstacles and roadblocks.

According to LaRae Quy, FBI agents, also need to be resilient so they can solve cases that have no easy or obvious solution. 

In a great Smart Brief article, Quy explains the eight qualities that resilient people possess and she even explains with examples, how to make each quality work more effectively in your life. Took a quick look to see how many of the resilient traits below, you embody.  

Resilient people are successful because they:

1. Take Responsibility For Their Actions

Resilient leaders do not seek out happiness by relying on others, nor do they blame others for their situation.

2. Develop Good Daily Habits

The way we train ourselves to think, feel, and behave during our regular daily life is exactly the way we will respond when hit with hard times.   

3. Focus On Possibilities

Resilient people are always asking this question: what can I do to change my situation? When they focus on the possibilities that lie before them, they make their own luck. They do what they can with the hand they’ve been dealt, and in doing so, they take control of their life.

4. Are Positive Thinkers

There is a big difference between being an optimist and being a positive thinker. Positive thinkers are not necessarily happy or optimistic. Instead, positive thinkers are blunt realists who look misery right in the eye and confront the most brutal facts of their day without expecting things to change. They adapt to their circumstances without ever losing hope.

5. Prioritize What Is Important

Prioritizing information is a useful resilience tool because it forces your brain to interact with information rather than simply react to it. Lists are an excellent way of forcing different parts of the brain to interact with each other. This also prevents different parts of our brain from fighting against each other for attention and energy.

6. Manage Emotions

Too often, people pretend negative emotions and feelings don’t exist. Ignoring negative feelings is not healthy; nor is wallowing in them. Resilient people hurt when life hands them a rough time, but they never forget that they still have control over their attitude.

7. Reframe Negative Events

Nip negative emotions and reactions in the bud when they first appear. This is when they are the weakest.

8. Find Their Tribe

Friendships are important; they can lift you up, provide security, and prevent slip-ups in both business and life.  “We have a strong instinct to belong to small groups defined by clear purpose and understanding—"tribes." This tribal connection has been largely lost in modern society, but regaining it may be the key to our psychological survival.”
