Consistent successful results come with their fair share of challenges.
Some people may look like they dont have challenges and obstacles, but the reality is that everyone encounters pitfalls.
Here are a couple of Dos and Dont’s that you can simply apply to your next bump in the road.
Dont Blame Other People or Make Excuses
Someone MAY be to blame! You might have a perfectly legitimate excuse. Your blame and excuses arent going to help you get a better result, they simply pacify you from feeling uncomfortable.
Dont Ignore Your Problems or Sweep Them Under the Rug
Sometimes you need to have difficult conversations. Sometimes you need to take actions that arent fun or comfortable.
Ignoring your feelings when you are angry or sad isnt going to fix anything. At best you are just delaying the problem. At worst you are letting your negative energy build and become worse.
Take the high road and get comfortable being uncomfortable.
What to Do?
Look for the Good in the Situation
There is good to be found in any situation, so matter how difficult it may be. This may not be easy and it might not be available for you see immediately. When you look back at even the most challenging moments in your life, you can find how that situation lead to something good. You can see how it fostered your growth and made you stronger. You dont have to wait years to pass to find the good.
The old saying that action cures fear holds a lot of truth. Especially when a solution isnt readily visible, taking action will help focus your mind on things other than the problem at hand.
You cant be negative AND grateful at the same time. By sincerely looking at other areas in your life that ARE working, at the very least, you will balance the challenging situations that you might be facing.
Start with the obvious and the easy to find. Your family. Your health. Your work or friends. Whatever fills you with gratitude is an immediate boost to your energy and allows you more power to go chase after your existing challenges. If you are really stuck this video will help!
