Question of the Week #7 How do You Handle Adversity?

How do you handle adversity?

This week’s questions is a bit more hard hitting. Because that’s what adversity is. It isn’t an easy part of life and it shouldn’t be. Adversity is a growing experience in the journey of life. Usually it is a painful experience where giving up seems to be the easiest thing to do.

So how do you handle adversity? Do you give up or give in at the first sign of hardship? Or do you stand your ground and face the challenge head on? This is an important question to ask yourself because some form of adversity is inevitable in life.

Usually I would add additional questions for you to answer but I feel that it isn’t necessary for this question. The method of how you handle adversity should be the only focal point. That method used is the determining factor of the level of success you experience. So make sure to really take your time with this question.

There is only one way to handle the adversities that life throws your way. That is to keep moving forward. Persistence is the only way to overcome adversity. It is the attitude of your persistence that determines the outcome of your hardship. If you are negative in your frame of mind than with almost certainty the end result will be negative. If you go through adversity with a smile on your face, with the faith that the storm will pass and your life will be better. Then eventually your situation will improve.

Adversity is inevitable so make the most of the situation. View it as a valuable learning lesson and a growing experience. Your life will be more fulfilling when you do experience the heights of success. All stemming from the depths of adversity and how you handled it.
