Triumph over adversity
We never know when a life-changing situation is just around the ccorner. It can be painful, gut-wrenching and totally frustrating. There may cause us to give up completely and become overwhelmed by what has happened. Yet there is also an opportunity to embrace our circumstances and learn how to live in a very different way.
How would you react if, through no fault of your own, your whole life was turned around? What would you need to do to pick yourself up and start all over again? It takes something to face adversity and not let it be in control of you. It takes focus, great attitude and learning how to express gratitude, no matter what we face.
The first important step is choosing your end goal. It may be something that seems so far from where you are now and you have no idea how you’re going to achieve it. Yet by focusing on your goal, you immediately change your energy levels. Whatever you focus on becomes bigger. Focusing on the problems and obstacles only makes them seem much larger than they are. It weakens your ability to do what you need to do to pull through.
