Building Resilience

So you lost out in the last interview. And maybe the last several. Sometimes the game starts off on the wrong foot and it feels like you’re down by a lot just a few minutes into the game. The hard part is forgetting about the last play and moving on to the next. This is where resilience comes into play.

You see it every week in sports. The momentum swings. One team gets on a roll and the other team can’t seem to do anything right. From all aspects they appear to be very evenly matched. However, one team has some negative energy getting in its way.

Clear the mind. Forget about the last interview. Focus only on the next one. If you go back to fundamentals, you can turn things around. But, if you constantly relive the last failure in your mind, it will repeat itself over and over. You must have resilience to overcome challenges.

Often it requires that inspirational leader to help clear the fog. The Kansas City Chiefs were down 24-0 in the first quarter in their playoff game against the Houston Texans in January 2020. Their leader, quarterback Patrick Mahomes, helped them refocus to move on to the next play, and then the next play, and so on. They came back, led at halftime, and won by 20 points, 51-31.

Or, as Ted Lasso might say, “Be a goldfish.”
