How To Overcome Adversity
Last Update: Apr 16, 2019
I've been working on my website for the Super Affiliate Challenge. It just seems that when I try to sit down and concentrate and get something done, something else pops up that needs my attention. Have you been through that? Here is just my personal thoughts on how to overcome adversity. Maybe this can help you also.
Just to give you a bit of context. I recently had my fourth back surgery (and hopefully my last). I felt like crap for a long time but just within the last 3 weeks or so, I have gotten the feeling that I am turning the corner. It's about time. I have been down for almost 3 months.
My wife and I recently got a new puppy that we adopted from our local city animal shelter. She is great. We also have a 3-year old staffordshire terrier that is about 70 lbs,
Anyway, just this past weekend, my older dog must have stepped on or ran over my puppy. My pup now has a hairline fracture in one of her legs. It's a good thing that I am off work or else we wouldn't be able to have her. As you might imagine, she needs a lot of attention right now.
$750 in emergency pet care later (thank goodness for credit cards), I'm now taking care of an injured pup while still showing love to my older dog. Good thing for the most part, I'm back on my feet but have to put looking for work on hold for at least another month so that I can be a nurse to my puppy.
How Do I Overcome This?
I'm not complaining. That's the first thing. Actually, I feel blessed. Puppy is learning to trust me and she is so cute with her cast. I'm back up on my feet. My wife is able to hold us down income wise for the moment. I'm building my business with my website and having a ball doing so with everything that I'm learning. I know that I won't have to worry about working for someone else at some point in the future because of what I'm learning here at WA.
So, how do I overcome the situation, I keep moving forward. That is the key for us all. Just keep moving FORWARD. As long as there is forward movement, you can get past anything and end up better off than you were before.
Adversity, is like lifting weights. When you first start lifting, you have to deal with the soreness and discomfort because the muscle is being torn down. The good news is, in tearing down the muscle, it is now ready to be built back up stronger and mightier than it was before.
So it is with adversity. In going through it, it's rough and hard to do sometimes. But as you keep moving forward, your strength is built up to a point where you realize, Hey, I'm good now and can make it through that situation again if it comes back up.
What a nice place to be.
Keep pushing, keep reaching, keep striving, no matter the difficulty keep pushing forward and see where you end up. Especially here, where it pertains to building your business.
Adversity is no match for those who continue to move FORWARD!!!
