It is undeniable that life will, at some point, challenge us. The question is not if this will happen, but when it will happen and how we will deal with it. We may not always be able to control what happens to us, but we can control how we respond.
Our ability to deal with these challenges depends heavily on our level of resilience and bravery. Resilience helps us to withstand and recover from adversity, while bravery allows us to take risks and seize opportunities.
When we take the time to develop resilience and bravery, we open up new possibilities for ourselves and our lives full of authenticity, joy, and love. We can face our challenges with confidence, and we can seize opportunities with excitement and enthusiasm. These are not fixed traits you either have or don't have. You can build resilience and bravery by taking steps to develop them in yourself.
In this episode, we, together with our guest Pamela Brinker will explore different ways in which we can develop both our resilience and bravery – done with full awareness and intention. Pamela will also discuss the power of therapy and how it can help us create the life we know we're meant for.
Pamela Brinker is a writer who has worked as an integrative psychotherapist for over three decades. With extensive training in somatic work, she equips and empowers others to learn and use transpersonal techniques building upon intrinsic, conscious bravery. Having developed over 20 tools and practices, Pamela speaks, teaches & writes about bravery, resilience, and presence during adversity. Her new book, Conscious Bravery, teaches us how to train in bravery using solid concepts, tools, and practices.
