“HOW DOES IT HELP…TO MAKE TROUBLES HEAVIER BY BEMOANING THEM?” – SENECA
It’s the only logical response.
Sober, collected, unemotional action produces the best results and protects your health from stress.
Accept that things will go wrong in life and every time they do it’s simply another opportunity to build mental toughness and grow as a man.
Fighting and resisting adversity adds a layer of stress and distraction to the problem while deteriorating the chances of a positive outcome.
Take emotionless control of the situation and get to work on resolutions.
We can also better prepare for future adversity by practicing what the Stoics called “negative visualization.” More on that HERE.
