Staying Positive Under Adversity
Sunday October 30, 2005
We all face problems in our life that seem impossible to overcome
and feel that we have no control over our life whatsover. Going through
adversity happens to the best of us but you cant dwell on the negative
experiences or you`re just going to end up being more upset than you
would`ve been if you stayed positive. The true tests of life are not what
your problems are, but they are the ways you went about overcoming them.
Staying positive under adversity is a characteristic few people possess and
can take a life time to learn.
The most important thing to do when faced with a problem is to
locate the source. What caused the negative thought or experience? Is there
any way you can avoid the situation so it doesn`t happen again? Negative
issues are a factor that take a toll on everything you do. It gives you the
mindset that you can`t do anything right and keeps you from achieving the
goals you have set for yourself. Most negative thoughts are only imaginary
but when you have an outside source causing the problem, do whatever you can
to overcome the issue.
Write down specifically the problem you are facing and research
ways that will help you achieve what you need to do. Study other people who
went through the same battles as you are going through and get inspired by
their attitude and perseverance towards the problem. Everything in life has
obstables, you need to realize that trials are all a part of the game and
always keep focused on the specific goal you want to accomplish.
A positive mindset is one of the best traits a person can have.
You feel in control of your life and believe you will be successful at
everything you do. Being positive will also lead to a more productive life
that wouldn`t be possible if you kept abiding in the past. A good example of
a positive person is bicyclist, Lance Armstrong. After suffering testicular
cancer , he still had the determination to move on and finish his career
with 7 Tour De France wins. If you are looking for an inspirational story,
read about this man!
Staying positive under adversity is a true test of maturity. It
will make you stronger in the long run and all the battles you face in the
future will seem painless because you`ve exerienced tougher battles. Trials
are like Basic Training for the military. Everything seems confusing and
impossible at the beginning, but after time you start to gain discipline
that will be used on the battlefield if the situation arises. It`s the same
way in life. A positive attitude is the only way to achievieving what you
are looking for. Until next time, think positive!
