Making the Best out of a Bad Situation

Perfection is something people try to discover and the truth of the matter is, intentionally, they never will. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t continue to try. The closer we achieve success, the more we want to pursue more. However, it’s not all the time that things go along as intended. Frequently, things just don’t fall into place as planned and we regress. This, in turn, leaves an emotionally bad feeling in the pit of our stomachs. We should treat this feeling as an imposter. When things go sideways it is an opportunity for growth, a chance to overcome and when we do, we become stronger than we were before.  Making the best out of a bad situation might save you from ruin and turn the tides in your favor.

Here are two pieces of advice I can give you to keep your stand and maintain your sanity as you battle what may be the worst days of your life:

Do what you think is what’s best for you.

You don’t have to mimic other people’s successes. What worked for them may not work for you. It is common for people to think that conquering things is simply doing what other people did to beat the same problem. But it does not work that way. We are all different in everything we do. Do what you do best and not what someone else does, poorly. Most times you will come out right.

Find the motivation that pushes you forward, not upward

Motivation is a critical factor in overcoming adversity. Stay clear of motivators that only provide you with the urge to climb upward, regardless of who you are stepping on in the process. You need to find the right motivation that pushes you forward, allowing you to build your skills, strengths, and individual growth. 

“We, as humans, make mistakes, and there is always room for improvement.”Francis Castelli, Just Show Up.

It is normal to be held back, stuck within a situation you’ve never thought of happening. The anxiety, the fear, will slowly creep from the walls of your bedroom every night, trying to haunt your very existence. Don’t be surprised when you encounter individuals who would enjoy taking advantage of your “bad situation.” These people will happily take you down should they get the chance. Ignore them, recognize their motivation, and consider them vapor. Don’t play their game but play yours, making the best out of a bad situation and overcoming your challenges.
