I’ve got a question for you: What happens when life hits you hard? Do you crawl inside yourself and hide? Do you throw your hands up and give up? Or do you wipe yourself off and get back up again?

In this episode, I am talking about resilience, and to help me do that is my friend, Kelley Tyan. Kelley is a wife, mother of two, as well as the author of the book and host of the podcast, Addicted to the Climb.

Join me for a meaningful and uplifting conversation as Kelley shares her wisdom on:

  • What it means to be resilient
  • How focusing on fear produces more fear
  • The power of setting your mind to do something
  • And more!

This is such an important conversation. I hope it is exactly what you need to hear today!

My Key Takeaways:

1) You have to make a conscious choice to be resilient. There comes a point where you need to resolve to climb your way out of the pit you find yourself in. That’s not to say that we don’t need help or support, but if we don’t have the resolve to get to the other side then we will remain stuck no matter who tries to help us. Before we can be resilient, we have to put ourselves in the mindset that we ARE going to overcome whatever life has thrown our way.

2) We are not exempt from hardship. Life does not become all rainbows and smiles when you become a Christian. In fact, we are just as susceptible to unexpected circumstances and hardships just like everyone else. So we should not be surprised when we face trials and pain in our lifetime. However, we can still remember the hope that we have in Jesus that spurs us onto the other side of the difficult seasons of life.

3) Set your mind on other things. Our minds think about what we focus on and obsess over. If you are constantly focusing on the negative things in your life or how everything can go wrong, that is what your mind will begin to see in any situation. Instead, we should practice going to Scripture for encouragement and shifting our minds to focus on other things. Set your mind on the truth rather than your fears. I recommend starting to read in the book of Philippians if you want to find encouragement.
