People often ask Anne Grady how she keeps going in spite of hardship. Anne has gone through intense trials as the mother of a child with mental illness—the inspiration for her forthcoming book, "Strong Enough." Plus, she recently had a facial tumor with partial paralysis and then broke her foot at the same time!
How does she do it? Anne has a simple formula that she shares with everyone:
COURAGE + RESILIENCE = TRIUMPH
To start 2017 off strong, Anne recommends:
1. Find ways to turn your expectations around. Discomfort is a catalyst for growth, so when you have an event that you're not crazy about, try to figure out how you can use it.2. Let go of expectations of yourself and others. Usually when we're frustrated, it's because our expectations and reality are out of alignment.3. Find things to be grateful for. The simple act of looking for things to be grateful for releases dopamine and serotonin—the "feel good" chemicals—in your brain.
