Did you know that emotional resilience is a skill acquired through experience? As you go through the ups and downs of freelancing, here are 4 common situations where you will need to practice emotional resilience:
1. When you are rejected by a prospect
Learn how to bounce back immediately and focus on the next prospect. This will help you develop resilience towards rejection across all aspects of life.
2. When you are aware that you messed up
The truth is, you are going to mess up at some point- no matter how hard you try not to. The key is to see every opportunity as a learning opportunity.
3. When a client is being unreasonable
Avoid additional stress by taking your time to think before you respond. DO NOT REACT IMMEDIATELY.
4. When you face the reality that your animation business 100% relies on you
Regardless of your emotions, you have to move forward no matter what. Remember to stay focussed on the long-term rather than the short-term.
