We all face adversity from time to time, but some flourish, while others seem to keep struggling. Hard times happen, but there are ways you can be coping better and can move through them and come out the other side with a better outlook than when adversity hit.
- Keep family and friends close, they need you, and you need them.
- Don’t lose your sense of humour and maintain a positive mindset.
- Have a purpose during the challenges and be accountable.
- Take stock and work with what you have.
- Engage with more entrepreneurship.
- Learn from the mistakes you and others have made in the past.
- Prepare mentally for the long journey ahead.
- Look for the valuable insights an opportunities for the future.
- Make peace with the situation.
- Believe in your ability and capacity to cope.
- Use the time to refocus your plans for a better future.
No matter the adversity, it can be a great teacher and your chance to gain valuable insights to learn so you’ll have a better chance of handling a bad situation next time.
Coping better means winners never quit, and quitters never win.
They take time to process what they’ve already been through and then resume moving forward. To find a way to continue to achieve your dreams, don’t lean too heavily on your understanding of what you should do and seek further advice.
Take a good hard look at your strengths and weaknesses? However, don’t create a biased opinion of yourself. You will either think too highly of yourself or too little of yourself, so seek objectivity and start coping better.
Whether you’re starting a business or are a seasoned entrepreneur, it’s vital to know yourself. Talk to people who know you. They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. The hardships you’ve going through can give you the confidence to handle whatever comes your way.
In coping better you must control stress.
If you’re worrying, feeling shut down or burned out, perhaps you need to increase your circulation. Poor circulation is almost always the reason for stagnation and failure in every area of life, not just your health.
Things go from bad to worse in times of adversity because people stop circulating their wealth, creativity, and knowledge, ideas and opportunities. It is usually too hard going it alone. The key to a better future is increasing the volume and velocity of circulation.
Successfully explaining your organisation’s new path forward to a virtual team, some of whom may be in different time zones or working at odd-hours to accommodate caring responsibilities, will almost certainly require you to communicate carefully.
Once, you would have called everyone together and talked. Everyone knew what was going on, but it’s tough to do now you have been severely disrupted.
