KEEP ADVERSITY IN PERSPECTIVE
Adversity is inevitable as I walk on the path to my dreams. When adversity pays an unwelcome visit, I modify my plans, stick to my purpose, and never surrender my dreams. My strategy for dealing with adversity has six steps.
First, I don’t panic. I step back from the problem and regain my composure. I deal with adversity only after I have a positive state of mind.
Second, I make a limited and orderly retreat. I sacrifice only those things that are truly expendable. It’s rare that a mistake is so large that all is lost. A limited and orderly retreat is better than total unconditional surrender.
Third, I assess the situation. There are always many alternative ways of responding, and I usually have enough control over the situation that I can select an acceptable response rather than have a single course of action dictated by my adversaries.
Fourth, I identify my resources and prepare them for action. My counterattack is on a scale consistent with my available resources, and my objective is in the realm of possibility.
Fifth, I act only after everything is in place and ready to go. Once I am ready, I take enthusiastic, positive, and fearless action.
Sixth, I never quit. No matter what happens, I will not surrender. As long as I don’t quit, adversity and setbacks are only detours on the road to my dreams.
