Emotional Resilience for Practice Growth

In the world of business and personal development, we often emphasise the importance of strength and resilience. We talk about building muscles in the gym to improve physical health and stamina. But what about emotional resilience? That’s a muscle of a different kind, one that can’t be developed through weights and repetitions.

Consider this: You have a goal or a decision you want to make, but the voices in your head start to chime in. 

“I don’t feel confident yet.” 

“What if I fail?” 

“I’ll wait until I feel more ready.” 

These doubts and fears creep in, causing you to pause, delay, or even abandon your aspirations altogether. It’s as if logic is wrestling with emotion, but the wrong muscle is being flexed.

The path to growth: Facing fears and embracing discomfort 

This scenario isn’t unique to individuals; it’s prevalent in business settings too. When faced with crucial decisions or leadership challenges, we often grapple with self-doubt and fear of failure. And this internal struggle comes at a cost—it impedes progress and stifles growth.

The truth is, our inability to confront and navigate negative emotions hinders our potential. We wait for confidence to magically appear before taking action, when in reality, courage precedes confidence. It’s a process: courage leads to action, action leads to competence, and competence leads to confidence. But this process doesn’t unfold in the gym; it unfolds in the depths of our emotional landscape.

Insights from mindset performance coach, Jess Cameron

Recently, during a live session with our dental clients, mindset performance coach Jess Cameron posed a thought-provoking question: “What’s the one emotion you’re avoiding feeling, even if it means sacrificing what you truly desire in life?” It’s a poignant enquiry that sheds light on the discomfort we shy away from—whether it’s shame, rejection, or judgement.

Just as we wouldn’t skip leg day at the gym, we shouldn’t neglect our emotional well-being. Strengthening emotional resilience requires confronting discomfort head-on, embracing vulnerability, and challenging ourselves to expand our emotional capacity.
