We can’t control what happens to us, but we can choose how to respond to our circumstances. Bad things happen to everyone, but successful people cope more effectively. Here’s some tips to improve your ability to cope:
1) Don’t make emotional-based decisions. When we lose our temper or want instant gratification, we react instead of respond. I’m not saying be a “robot”, but it’s better to think before you act rather than say what you feel. We need to be more aware about how our decisions affect others.
2) The past doesn’t determine the future. Many times we dwell on what we know or have experienced so far. This becomes a destructive cycle. To break the cycle, you must decide to do something new and expect different results.
3) Train your brain. Listen to this equation carefully: Your thoughts trigger your feelings which cause action (or inaction). That means everything starts inside your head. Don’t self-sabotage yourself before you begin. Turn your negative thoughts into a positive “I” statement. You’ll be amazed what an optimistic attitude can do for you!
