These days, we all need a motivational pick-me-up every once in a while. Learning how to be resilient goes a long way toward staying productive and centered even during difficult times. Anytime you feel you need that extra boost at work, try this neat, simple trick.
Revving Up Your Emotional Engine
If you are a sports fan, you’re probably familiar with highlight reels, the video compilations that intend to show athletes at their finest.
Whether it’s Michael Jordan defying gravity or the US Women’s National Soccer Team pummeling opponents on their way to win the World Cup, everyone loves highlight reels. They’re cinematic, epic, and rev up our emotional engine.
Now, not all of us have a television crew following us around capturing our best moments. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t have your own highlight reel.
Creating Your Own Highlight Reel
The first question that comes to mind is “Why should I create a personal highlight reel?”
Simple: when we feel down, it’s usually because we doubt our abilities, or because we feel that we are not up to the task. A personal highlight reel reminds you that you are smart, capable, and able to solve problems.
To assemble your personal highlight reel, think of moments when you have been decisive, resourceful, or assertive.
Remember that no moment is too small if it resonates with you. It may be a situation where you stood up for yourself. Or maybe an idea that helped you solve a complex problem at work. Or perhaps a moment where you displayed exceptional wisdom or empathy.
Your highlight reel will be as unique as your experiences. Assemble your reel today and use it whenever you feel that you need to find your extra gear at work or in your personal life.
