Handling Adversity


"The manner in which one endures what must be endured is more important than the thing that must be endured." - Dean Acheson

Each of us will face one or several obstacles in life. That is just the way life can be. Look at your own life and measure the number of times something has occurred which set you back, brought you down or just made you feel bad.

And here you are, still standing.

Did those events strengthen you? Did you learn something from the experience? Did it build your character? With each occurrence, was it a little bit easier to deal with and come through? If you can not answer yes to these questions, then you are allowing external forces to dictate your life.

You dictate your own attitude.

Examine your personality and how your attitude effects your own ability to pull through the bad times. Having a positive attitude will allow you to focus on the issues and solve them more quickly. A poor attitude causes you to wallow in self pity and despair leaving you with no ambition or willingness to confront the problem.

Face your issues with the idea they can be overcome.

A solution can be found so get up and create movement to change the situation. I have seen people follow the thought process of not confronting their approach to an issue and sure enough, nothing changes. The same conditions remain and they wonder why. And its because the same is not working.

Move to make a different kind of change.

Adopt a different thought, a different idea, a different attitude about your condition. There is the proverbial "light at the end of the tunnel" and based upon your attitude, it will truly be the light of a new and brighter day. Let your attitude shine in the light beyond the end of the tunnel, you will be quite pleased.

Stay inspired my friends!
