Motivation, Inspiration, Personal Development and Leadership
We often face situations that from initial look appear extremely challenging to overcome. However, every situation, regardless of its complexity, has a solution attached, the challenge is to dig deep and find that solution. In some cases, to avoid being hit in the nose by life, while searching for a solution, we may need a ‘helmet and face mask’ to protect ourselves from various roadblocks along the way.
The thing is, it’s all about how you look at any given situation. You may say that there are some situations which have no possible positive outcome, or you may say that clear outcome may not be in plain sight and you have to really look for it with magnifying glass. But, at the end of the day there’s always an outcome. In some situation it may differ from our expectations, but less favorable outcome is still different from no outcome. There’s always an opportunity to keep seeking the desired outcome until you finally able to achieve it.
Don’t be afraid to reach out for help
It’s important to remember to keep those around you, your close friends and family, in mind when support and feedback is needed to re-focus. Often, we simply need for someone that we trust to listen to us vent, in order to release that pressure that has built up inside of us over time. Once, that is done and we laid out everything that we may be dealing with and obstacles that we may be facing, we can look at any challenging situation from a different angle and different, positive perspective. So, don’t hold everything inside of you, don’t let stress build up, just remember that there’s someone who is always willing to hear you out regardless how busy they may be.
Positive and optimistic outlook is the key
Remember to remain positive and optimistic at all times. Don’t let negativity to get inside of you, because, negativity spreads very quickly and adds a toll to our emotional and physical state in the form of stress. It definitely helps to stay away from the source of negativity whenever possible. Instead, taking nice walk and clearing your mind from any negativity you may have involuntarily accumulated, while listening to some music that you enjoy.
It works the same way when you receive a very direct written communication via email or text. Before actually responding immediately, just walking away from your desk for few minutes, because, when you return the communication that you had in your mind earlier will no longer be applicable, and more positive communication will be delivered. As one of my previous bosses used to say: “be a bigger person.”
Remember, you are in control how you view and feel about any particular situation.
