What Is Thriving?
Thriving is about living life to the full – it’s about choosing to experience life in a positive, optimistic enthusiastic way knowing that you have the skills and resources needed to deal with whatever life throws at you. To Thrive is to be on ‘top of your game’ and ‘smashing it out of the park’ whenever you get the chance to do so.
Why live a life of dull, boring mediocrity when you could be Thriving? Thriving is about embracing the challenges of life with courage, enthusiasm and a determination to win through in the end even when the odds are stacked against you.
Thriving isn’t about being perfect – it’s about doing the best you can given the situation you find yourself and the resources you have available to you at the time.
It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, your socio-economic or educational background, your age, gender, sexuality or what happened to you in your childhood – you can learn to Thrive!
Those Who Thrive
Thriving individuals don’t avoid or seek safety from potentially challenging situations but embrace life and all that life has to offer. They’re buoyant, enthusiastic and have a ‘can do’ attitude. Those who thrive are open-minded, flexible and goal-orientated – they tend not to dwell on the past, they look forward to the future and they recover quickly from set-backs because they’ve resilient and have tremendous coping skills.
Those who Thrive believe in themselves and in their ability to do well – they like themselves, look after themselves and hold themselves in high self-regard. It goes without saying that those who Thrive have high self-esteem, are self-accepting and have great social confidence!
Interestingly, those who Thrive tend not to be self-righteous, boastful or egotistical. On the contrary, thriving individuals tend to be modest, calm, humble and unassuming. They are, in other words quietly confident. The stability of their inherent sense of self-worth and self-belief means they’re unlikely to need or seek approval – they appreciate honest feedback and learn from what others say but they’re also able to assess and validate themselves with great accuracy. They are self-aware, emotionally intelligent individuals who treat themselves and others well.
