How to Triumph Over Disaster
There will always be times that do not go as planned. There will always be situations that knock you down. True strength comes from standing in front of adversity and boldly moving forward. Here are some ways to overcome and triumph over disaster.
What Can YOU Do?
When something terrible happens, we tend to blame external circumstances out of our control. Shift your focus to what you CAN change, who you CAN affect and how you need to show up to impact the situation in a positive way.
Nothing has a meaning aside the meaning you give it. Change the story of what it means, look at it from a different perspective, and find the great meaning. As Wayne Dyer famously said, "when we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change"
Ask Better Questions
The way you feel is largely determined by your focus. And your focus is directed by questions. Ask yourself questions that will give you better answers. Instead of 'why did this happen to me?' ask 'what can this teach me moving forward?' Better questions allow you to give situations better meanings.
Live in the NOW
So much of human suffering comes from focusing on the past or focusing on the future. The only thing that matters is what is happening right now. This moment is the only thing that you can affect. Make the decision to get present and focus on where you are now and what you need to do to move past it.
Attitude of Gratitude
Fear cannot exist when you are in a state of gratitude. It allows you to be fully engaged with the present moment and forget about everything that might be going wrong. When disaster strikes, put yourself in a state of gratitude to eliminate the worry and connect with what's really important.
Power of Love
The power of love is the antidote to fear, it is the medicine of hate, it is the cure for war, and it is the one thing that can overpower any negative feeling and change it to one of abundance. Disaster will happen, but with love we can overcome it.
Disaster will happen - it's inevitable. That is something we can't change. But what we CAN change is ourselves. We have to power to change our perspective, live in the moment and come from a place of love so we can change the story to one of positivity and power.
