“Self-esteem is as important to our well-being as legs are to a table. It is essential for physical and mental health and for happiness” – Louise Hart
The definition of the word resilient:-
If we were to take the metaphor of the table we can explain what each table leg represents an element of resilience and the table top pulls all the components together.
The Resilience Table
Leg One – Mental toughness, how robust are you at staying in the role of decision maker. Using all your logical thinking skills to way up pros and cons and be aware of problem and solutions as they arise.
Leg Two – Physical energy, staying strong and being able to attend continuous meetings still with a smile and bringing energy to every event.
Leg Three – Emotional balance, being measured in reponses to others and demonstrating empathy. A support for others with a balanced view and the appropriate emotional response.
Leg Four – Social skills – naturally adept at making everyone feel comfortable in your space. Being your own person and not being swept into negative behaviours, managing your own self esteem and confidence about who you are.
Table Top – Sense of purpose, a meaning to what you are doing, the core of who you are. This holds the legs and is the most important place to start when thinking about your resilient levels.
The table top is where we need to ask ourselves “Why do we do what we do? this will uncover your meaningful purpose will help create strong table legs.
Give yourself a score out of 10 for each of the table legs and constantly monitor why one might be high and one low. You will have to nurture and look after each leg and ensure that they are totally connected to the table top.
