Can you bounce?

“There are 2 kinds of people. Those who bounce and those who break.” – Brian Tracy

Like those cartoon characters that get dropped or steamrolled or shredded, it really is possible and it’s never to late to bounce back. Resilience is learn-able.
The first step is to take full responsibility for whatever happened. Even when it really was not your fault.
As tempting as it is grab the moral high ground when someone kicks you in the teeth. Instead of blaming, fuming, raging… try a complete about turn. Explore all the ways you can take full ownership of whatever happened. Dig deep if you have to. The tap root of seeing yourself as the victim must come out.
Grab back the reigns by saying, “I am responsible” Heady, scary, exhilarating. Hold a higher vision of yourself. Much better than lying in a heap.

Try these three 3 steps
1. radical control. Take full responsibility
2. radical forgiveness. Free yourself and your energy and focus.
3. radical re-visioning. Start seeing yourself as already being at the top of the bounce. Or whatever your highest vision of yourself is.
To achieve steps 1, 2 and 3 and align your vision with your purpose with speed, grace and focus it helps to know your fingerprints.
