And yet this can still be hard to believe, especially when you're used to beating yourself up if something doesn't go right, or if you aren't on point 100 percent of the time. So, if you are having a hard time cutting yourself some slack, then check out these tips below, because it’s perfectly OK to not be perfect. 1.
Don’t panic. Our natural reaction when adversity strikes is to panic. The fight-or-flight reflex kicks in and our natural inclination is to either run away from the situation or lash out at the source of the adversity. Either option is usually a mistake. Thus, the first step in dealing with adversity is not to panic.
3. Emotional Adversity. Most of us desperately need to learn how to have our feelings without letting them overcome us. Emotional maturity comes from experience and an effective state of mind. Those who don’t have that maturity face more difficulties in life. A very common, very human problem is for people to undervalue themselves.
Accepting adversity doesn't mean you won't feel sad and frustrated by setbacks. Give yourself permission to feel negative emotions, but try setting a time limit on how long you can dwell on them. For example, schedule 30 minutes to cry and feel in your pain. When time is up, divert your attention to completing a task.
1. Refocus and look at adversity through the lens of opportunity and learning. 2. Setbacks and failures need to be welcomed and overcome. 3. Remember that failures and setbacks develop your resilience. Deal favorably with them by taking action on correcting your course after receiving feedback.
2. Mental Adversity. Just like a physical handicap might limit you, so can a mental problem. Being properly treated by psychiatrists and psychologists is obviously crucial to managing your mental health, but there are steps you need to take beyond going to the doctor. If you’re dealing with mental anguish, routines are your friend.
A physical disability is the most obvious example of physical adversity. The quarterback who breaks his spine during a football game and is suddenly stuck in a wheelchair faces a number of new challenges and a drastic change to the way he lives his life.
Deal with adversity effectively and regain control over your life: 1. Understand that adversity is a part of life. When have you ever not had a challenge of some sort? Never. There’s always something wrong. When one issue is solved, another one will pop up to take it’s place. So dealing with adversity is just part of life. 2. Look on the bright side.
OVERCOMING ADVERSITY While overcoming adversity, avoid isolation. In times of difficulty, we can’t afford to isolate ourselves. We can’t afford to run from the battle. When adversity strikes we need to run to the battle. scripture declares, “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of love, power, and a sound mind” (1 Timothy 1:7).
