In this day and age we hear so much about people, especially women, feeling like they aren’t good enough, smart enough or pretty enough, among other things. Feelings of not being good enough can impact not only our professional work life, but our personal relationships as well.
Knowing your core identity, and, consequently, your place in the world around you can be life-changing. And it can help give you power you didn’t know you had.
My guest today has helped thousands of people discover their core identity and with it the value in life they have coming to them.

Hi and welcome to Coffee with Claire!
Today’s theme is going to be about resilience.
The definition of resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.
At the beginning of anything new, there’s always excitement and an adrenaline rush as you build that something that has never been built before.
You figure it out, you put processes together, and pretty soon, you have a well-oiled machine that you understand and know you can depend on.
Then, one day, you hit a snag–something completely unexpected, and out of your control. Everything you worked for is suddenly gone. You’re left standing at a crossroads. Which road do you choose?
Path #1 is easy. You quit. You throw in the towel. You decide that the thing that happened was a sign that you weren’t supposed to do it anymore anyways.
Path #2 is you pick yourself up, gather the pieces you can find, and re-invent and re-create those that you can’t. It takes time and it takes money that you didn’t think you had, but you find ways to make it work.
Not everyone will pick Path #2. It may not be feasible. But those who are successful know there’s going to be up’s and downs. You’re never 100% right, or profitable, or marketable or whatever other adjective you want to inject. However, it’s the people who have resilience in their blood that are willing to try again. Maybe do it a little differently this next time around, but it’s definitely worth it in their minds.
The resilience I am speaking about specifically is Coffee with Claire, and how I came to the conclusion that just because we hit a major bump in the road didn’t mean we veered off the road, took the wheels off the bus, and walked home. Would it have been easy? Sure. But I wasn’t done, and I wasn’t going to give up.

Everyone has had some kind of adversity in their life at some point. Some things are extremely visible to others; sometimes it’s not so easily seem by a bystander. However, no matter what way it shows up, it still can derail you. It’s a choice to face it and figure out a way to work it out. Sometimes we can figure it out on our own; sometimes we need some help.
