Be A Comeback Story
We can’t let our bad times snowball into worse times, we need to take control of our life and get it pointed back where it needs to go. Demonstrating resilience in the face of adversity is a huge opportunity for personal growth, because growth occurs at our limits. Harness that potential and take control.
The reason we get ourselves into these situations is because we are short on motivation and will. It’s not easy to pull yourself out and reverse the tide, but it is possible, and here is how:
One thing to do is to talk to others about it. Everyone has their own set of issues, and people are understanding of that. Getting everything out of your mind and shared with someone else lets you address everything that’s going on while receiving usable feedback.
Also, it’s really helpful to make a plan. The nature of motivation is that it is intrinsic. When you don’t have it, you won’t be able to take action. However, having a plan tells you what you need to do, and can override your psychology helping you to move forward.
The reason I like phrasing it as “be a comeback story” is because it paints the negative situation in a opportunistic way. With that mentality, you will be more likely to overcome the situation you find yourself in.
