Handling Difficulty October 3, 2008

Concluding this week’s topic:  Handling Difficulty, it is said:

FAILING TO PLAN IS PLANNING TO FAIL.

In times of difficulty, planning is more important than ever.  There is always a plan in our heads – maybe more than one version of a plan.  It’s when we take the time to refine and understand it that planning becomes most useful – especially in times of difficulty.

Other means of handling difficulty that have been suggested in classes this week include:

* Being light and injecting humor

* Maintaining fitness and personal habits at a high level

* Accessing spiritual and religious beliefs

* Taking a long-term view – in addition to being present to today

* Spend time in nature and allow it to restore you

This week’s topic:  Handling Difficulty.

There can be opportunity in difficulty.  Sometimes, we’re able to look back and see some good that occurred when tough things happened.  Often there are gifts in terrible situations.

Experiment with expanding your natural resilience to learn from all circumstances by routinely asking both questions:

What is the worst thing about this situation?

What is the best thing about this situation?

Developing and maintaining a balanced perspective is a key strategy in weathering difficulty.

This week, our topic is HANDLING DIFFICULTY.  Dealing effectively with adversity begins with being grounded.  Consider, please:

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise . . .
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And – which is more, you’ll be a Man, my son.
Rudyard Kipling
Excerpted from If

“Keeping our heads” is a skill that can be enhanced with practice through meditation, concentration and focus.  Experiment with moving away from doubting and toward trusting yourself and your life.
