Who Do You Want to Be at This Moment?

What do I want to be known for?

Resiliency doesn’t happen overnight. 

Resiliency comes from building a strong “bounce back” muscle over time.  One way to build resiliency is to fast-forward and envision the end. Ask yourself, “Who do I want to be in this situation?” “What would your best resilient person do or look like when handling this situation?”


Visualize and record your best possible self in the future, having achieved what you set out to do.

Step 1: Identify and Describe a Challenging Situation
  • Describe a future personal challenge and what makes it difficult for you.

Step 2: Visualize Your Best Possible Resilient Self
  • Close your eyes and visualize bouncing back.

  • See yourself overcoming each part of the challenge.

  • What does that look like? How does it feel?

Step 3: Describe Your Best Possible Resilient Self
  • Write down and describe this best version of yourself.

  • How does it feel to be the best version of you?

  • How were you behaving, and what were you thinking?

Step 4: Reflect
  • How do you now feel about the challenge ahead?

  • What did you learn?

  • Knowing now where you want to be, what do you need to do?

  • Do you feel more confident in your abilities?

Be mindful of what you would want to see or be when you are living / being your most positive, resilient self. Look at yourself in the mirror and conduct that beautiful self-talk.
