Updated: Apr 30

No one is immune from experiencing challenging phases in life that can really test your strength. When you encounter those speed bumps in the road, how do you react? Are you able to deal effectively with these challenges without going to pieces? Could you use some help in finding your inner strength?


Try these ideas to tap in to your personal reserves whenever the going gets tough:


1. Take some time to ponder the present dilemma. What do you see as the real issue? Are you making a mountain out of a mole-hill? How can you focus your efforts on the current event that’s troubling you?

2. Acknowledge your fears about the vexing situation. Before you can show resilience to move forward, it’s important to recognize any fears that have a bearing on your current circumstances. Ignoring them will only serve to thwart you from confronting the issue.


3. Consider every option. Writing down your options for overcoming your challenge will help you see the situation from all angles.

  • Brainstorming as many solutions as you can is a great start to finding a workable option.

  • Be open-minded. Sometimes you have to remind yourself to not automatically screen out possible solutions to a sticky wicket. Every viable possibility should be considered.

  • Considering every possible solution indicates you have the resilience to succeed.
