Inner Resources

By Karen Vally on 23 May 2015

There is a song by Billy Ocean called, " When the Going Gets Tough." You might have heard it. What is it about some people that when they are faced with challenges, obstacles or disappointments, they just keep going, while others throw up their hands in despair and give up? Are successful people born with this ability or is it a skill that we can acquire?

"One of the most important keys to success is having the discipline to do what you know you should do, even when you don't feel like doing it. " Todd Smith.

When a task needs to be done, we can either avoid it, tackle it alone, or ask someone to assist us. Usually, some physical resources such as a computer, are required. But there are other resources that we need - our inner resources, such as determination, enthusiasm, creativity, focus and the ability to follow through until the task has been completed, or the goal accomplished. Even more crucial though, are two other ingredients -  effective time management and patience.

What is the good of all the determination in the world if we are unable to manage our time effectively?  Effective time management provides the key to our success together with tenacity, perseverance and resilience. Sometimes we need a dose of patience too. Patience allows life to fall into place.

What are your inner resources? How will you strengthen them? Which inner resources do you wish you had? How can you acquire them? Who can assist you?

Observe yourself more closely the next time you have a task to perform. What could you do differently? Which inner resources could you draw on and how could you manage your time more effectively? What if you were to be more patient?
