We may not all share the same hobbies, friends, careers, or dreams. However, we all share a version of adversity in our day-to-day lives. Life seems like a constant battle with moments of glory sprinkled along the way. It can feel like adversity always has the better of you. It doesn’t have to be that way. Here are six steps you can take to create a plan that will go to battle with you every day against the arch-nemesis that is Adversity.
- Find Hope.
For some, mornings are the hardest part of the day. That’s why it is essential to start your morning with the goal of finding hope for the day. What can you hope for today? What can you look forward to? What is worth fighting for? If you’re new to LiveTeamLife, we believe that everyone can overcome any type of adversity in their life, no matter the size. If you struggle finding hope, can we make a suggestion?
Find hope in yourself. We don’t know what level of adversity you face, but we know what your adversity is up against: YOU! You’re a daunting foe. You’re a valued person, a unique individual and one whose life is defined by successes you’ve transformed from failures. You. A fighter who has made it to today, to this website, to this blog. Find an excess of hope in yourself, and hope for a better version of you by following these steps. Catapult out of doubt! You can do it! Be hopeful!
- Be Proactive.
Now that hope has moved your heart, let hope move your feet. Make the decision every day to be proactive. Seek out victory, seek out success, seek out excellence. Seek to treat yourself well. Opportunity has found you at moments in your life. What if you were to find opportunity every once in awhile? How would that make you feel?
- Treat Others Well.
In the process of proactively fighting adversity, be mindful your of your effect on others. Follow The Golden Rule and treat others well. Don’t let your adversity add to someone else’s adversity. As you gain success, be generous and pass that success off to other people.
- Build a Team.
As you treat people well, you begin to build the intimate relationships essential for overcoming adversity. Build a trustworthy team committed to finding hope just like you! Surround yourself with solid personnel who seek excellence, share the vision and collaborate well. Your plan to overcome adversity gets easier with help.
- Set the Stage.
Attack adversity with a well-crafted plan. Just like it’s foolish to fight back against adversity alone, it’s also foolish to fight back against adversity without a strategy. Don’t go in blind and “wing it”. Planning for success is effort up front, but find comfort in knowing there is a plan to follow along the way.
- Give Hope Back.
Once you have executed your plan of attack, celebrate with your team and pay it forward. Freeing yourself by overcoming your adversity is a tremendous victory. But the most triumphant moment is being able to give hope back to others to help them overcome their adversity, too.
