In dealing with all challenges, here are five tips to keep you sane through the difficult times:
1. Do the best you can with what you have and where you are. You can't
always make your situations disappear instantaneously. And you may not
have all the answers in your desired time frame as to how to get to your
resolutions, so just work from where you are, to the best of your
ability. And make sure you acknowledge that you're doing your best.
2. Don't panic. It impedes your ability
to tap into the wisdom needed to take proactive, solution-oriented
actions, and it only worsens your circumstances because you end up
making snap decisions from your place of fear.
3. Don't complain. What happened happened. It's done and will never be
undone. It's best to only focus on how you're gonna transform the
circumstances, which you can't do if you bury yourself in complaint (and
blame). It blocks your fortune.
4. Stay appreciative. Focus on
what's working, what's right, what you enjoy, love, and what makes you
feel good in your life. Think about and talk about those things A LOT,
and give thanks for them repeatedly. This keeps your mental energy on an
upswing, keeps you hopeful, boosts your self-esteem, and allows you to
stay open to receiving more good.
5. Don't give up on your
desired outcome, no matter how jacked up things look. Grab your faith
and keep it close. Rely on it. Use it to keep you focused.
