Managing difficulties before they get easy is not as simple as we think. Or at least until it’s over. I have heard people say to others, condescending statements like, “You should have thought about that before you began! ” or “You should have known how hard it would be! “ and, Uh-huh, even, “… you got yourself into it, now you’ve gotta get yourself out. “
Yep… I have even heard that before and am no stranger to condescending comments from people who were supposed to be my friends…
Some are ok and we find that they are dependable. They provide some support too and for us during our specific trials, while others turn tail and run. I think we all have seen this. Nevertheless, we are rarely alone in our sufferings unless we make it so.
I think we all fairly can say that we have been through the wringer and out again or know someone who has.
These are the people who I consider and who should consider themselves as…
•The Champions of Survival
•The Mistress and Masters of Struggle
•The Dominators of Deals
•Managers of Negotiations
Let’s get right into them, shall we!
*The Champion of Survival*
Their Courage “In the Absence of Danger” is Admirable, to say the least. But to most its Stupidity or Arrogance. Because the opposite of Bravery and Courage is Stupidity and Arrogance. You would have to be either Brave or Stupid to access Courage and Bravery in the face of danger. It all depends on how you see it. If you see your situation as passable with an, “I’ll get by!” kind of Attitude.
They are the ones who rightfully walk away from things that don’t encourage them to excel. They also encourage those around them and those with whom they have sufficient influence to excel.
*The Master of Struggle*
They inspire us to see outside our own boxes and search for freedom beyond our own front doors. By the examples that they set in their own lives. In regards to how they handle their difficulties when compared to our own.
These are the people who “When faced with a challenge “, they stand strong. When life challenges them, they don’t give up. They hold their head up high.
They are blessed with a tremendous amount of Faith and Favor with you and just about everyone they come across and Firmly Believe that everything will work out in the end. “… and thus it goes.”
*The Dominator of Deals*
Daring to Dream
These people are the ones who strongly believe that Everyone’s life has positive and negative aspects whether they’re happy, successful or not. Also, that it depends greatly on which aspects they focus on.
Preferring the former, of staying positive rather than the later. They are willing to negotiate, make deals and compromise in order to actively work to resolve crucial issues making major sacrifices along the way for the greater good, hoping that things will get better at the end.
The dominator of deals has hope enough for the entire team, family, crew etc. They are the ones with that spark in their eye. The one with all the ideas on how to get out of that rut. They take chances and take risks. Their ideas are far-fetched but usually work out in the long-term. Daring to dream
*Managers of negotiations*
These are the people who are capable of performing nothing but modern-day miracles. They are the ones who are the peacekeepers encouraging others around them that things will inevitably get better. When they do get better, they are able to help others focus on rebuilding and fixing problems rather than ignoring or disputing them, because they are aware that time is our enemy and in order to make the best use if our time is to live harmoniously.
If and When these people faced with their challenges, it seems as though they flawlessly initiate then execute the most clever responses as a means to resolve those… (What it seems to be like) … every given situation, that they are challenged with and Somehow, manage to get through… it seems… without a scratch.
I know you’ve heard someone share their glory story and someone in that conversation say;
“… Man… The Luck People Have!”
Or, “Wow… That’s a Blessing!”
And you’re right! Because it very well may be that person truly came out with nothing more than something as simple as a bruised ego at the least. That’s possible…
We all have the unique opportunity to experience these challenges. Some of us may go through much more difficult trials and have tragic experiences that are more severe and have mortal consequences than others.
That’s not to say that one person cross challenge is more difficult to bear than another person or that person challenge is equally as challenging as another person Managing those difficulties may or may not depend upon the individual experiencing the experience.
It’s just in the way that the individual constructively adjusts to those hardships that sometimes continuously disappointment.
However, In every instant, with every person, there are those times that we may experience that annoying feeling of being overwhelmed and let down.
They may even feel like there’s no end in sight to managing those present and overly persistent issues that we are faced with from time to time. However, we are rightfully advised to not be discouraged.
