3 Quick Questions to Ask When Resilience is Needed

Honor was an important part of our resilience that helped us endure the POW era, and it’s closely tied to values and commitment. By definition, honor is “adherence to what is right or to a conventional standard of conduct.”

In reflection, I saw how the concept of honor had helped us endure, do our duty, and achieve our mission. it gave us a framework for maintaining our character and values and keeping our commitments in an oppressive communist regime.

Take a moment and reflect on the concept of values and resilience with these questions:

  1. Do you connect with your spiritual faith every day? Meditation and reflection are considered a powerful tool by all religions.
  2. Do you keep your commitments? What do you do when you see that you can’t keep them? Do you have a friend, cohort, or team, that can help and encourage you in keeping them?
  3. Do you have a set of standards to clarify your commitment to be an honorable person? Do you use them to coach yourself regularly to keep correcting back on course to live an honorable life?

Commit to your faith and values as you grow as an honorable leader. Someone is always watching to see how you will live and lead—what a great opportunity to influence and inspire others.
