Let’s embrace the reality that you’ll get knocked down and beat-up. It takes endurance and grit. The path to your dreams is like running a marathon. The race takes only a few hours, but it takes months to prepare and train.
Here are six tips to be more resilient and never give up on your dreams.
Every successful person has a story of adversity. You’re not the only one who faces hardship. Don’t confuse adversity with failure. Look for ways to grow and learn through hardship. Be prepared to fight when adversity strikes!
Now that you’re prepared to face adversity, you can start to grow resilience. In other words, resilience is the ability to bounce back stronger when knocked down and faced with adversity, and it’s a trait that anyone can develop.
Here are three ways to build resilience. 1. Take care of your mental and physical health. 2. Focus on your strengths. 3. Keep an optimistic attitude.
3. Have a reasonable timeline
I’ve found that people overestimate what they can achieve in a year and underestimate what they can achieve in 3-5 years. Dream big but make sure to take it one day at a time. Set clear daily goals that you know will get you closer to your long-term goals.
4. Some days will suck.
Don’t expect to be fired up and super productive every day. When you have a bad day don’t let this throw you off course. Everyone gets off track at times but the successful person doesn’t get lost. They find their way back on track.
5. Find people who are light in the dark.
When I have doubts or feel stuck, it’s important to be around supportive people who won’t let me give up. Sometimes I need a reminder that I have great potential and that I’ve made progress. Use the YHAC community for support, create a mastermind group, or get a personal coach.
6. Don’t let problems keep you stuck.
When people are stuck, it’s often because they don’t want to face a problem. You can’t simply wish your problems away and pretend they don’t exist. Take accountability and full ownership of problems and face them head on! Give yourself time to achieve your big desires. Surround yourself with supportive people and realize that problems won’t last forever.

I love this podcast. I had been looking for a good motivational podcast to listen to every morning when I found this one; it’s short enough to fit into my morning routine and provides great insight to start my day!
Perfect addition to my everyday. Builds motivation.
Great show, super helpful and informative
I love starting my days by listening to this show. I’ve been listening to it every day for six months now and every episode has helped me improve and become better. It’s super inspiring and motivating. I love how every episode starts with a thought of the day and is packed with the most incredible information you could possibly get for the day. Absolutely wonderful show I highly recommend everyone listen to it. They’re truly the best seven minutes of the day.
Everyone needs this podcast. No matter who you are, how old you are, or where you are in your life, these are principles that everybody needs to be reminded of and it is a perfect way to start your day off and set that positive vibe. This is easily my favorite podcast for self-development.

I could listen to this every day and I would be better for it. This has helped me a lot in areas in my life. The only negative I would say about it is 7min is not long enough.
Ever have one of those middle of the day meltdowns? But you still have hours of stuff to do and you can’t leave the office and medicate for two hours. Breathe. Headphones. 7 minutes. It works for me every time.
I was surprised that 7 minutes of excepts of speeches could have anything new to tell me about personal development. But the value is in the curation, something that is highly undervalued. The host has a knack for picking something of value for me. My next step is choose a little 7 min job every day to do while listening ... maybe even sort out my garage ! Now THAT will be a triumph
Absolutely love Oprah and her teachings. Thank you so much for this episode!
