Ask Dr G Resilience Goal
Written by Doctor G

The Easy Part


You know the problem with choosing a goal? The problem is that then you have to work toward it. 

I decided I wanted to write a book! That was the fun, exciting part. Then I had to write it. 

I decided I wanted to raise my kids to be people of strength and integrity. That was before I realized it was challenge and difficulty that build strength and integrity. Then I had (have to, daily) get out of their way and let them struggle. 

I decided I wanted to strengthen every person within the sound of my voice. That was before the media and the internet came along, offering me the chance to amplify my voice if I really meant it. Then I had to examine all my beliefs and all the research and figure out how to translate this knowledge in a way that reaches into people’s hearts and minds to honor their experience and challenge them to look beyond those experiences.

“Set goals” is a crucial part of resilience – because how can you navigate change if you don’t know what you’re navigating towards? – but it’s actually maybe the easiest part. 

It’s the steps that come next that are harder for me:

Finding options. Taking action. Persevering.

This week, I’m working hard to find options and take action, and it’s a slog. But when I get whiny about it (and I do – I have witnesses), I actually think of this moment in one of my favorite movies, Evan Almighty. In it, Morgan Freeman, as Gd, is talking to Lauren Graham who plays the wife of a modern day Noah (from the Bible story). And… well maybe someone is bold enough to speak for Morgan Freeman but it isn’t me. Go watch!

Anyway, what goal have you set that you’re recently struggling through steps to get there? I’d really like to know!

All my best,

Dr. G
