How to deal with adversity

Hi there!

Today we look at a great idea from an equally great book named “10-Minute Toughness” which was written from Dr. Jason Selk back in 2009.

The idea I will share with you from the book is about what we should do in the face of adversity.

Dr Selk says:

“Anytime you are in the presence of adversity, ask yourself, “What is the one thing I can do that could make this better?”

And he continues…

“Force yourself to give a substantive answer.”

(“I don’t know” is not an answer that will help.)

You do not need perfection; all you need is improvement. Keep asking yourself the question until your problem is no longer an issue.

Follow two simple rules to ensure success:

Rule number one: Never, ever give up.

Rule number two: Follow rule number one.

So, do you want to face adversity?

Ask yourself “What is the one thing I can do that could make this better?” and never give up answering this question until the problem is solved. Remember we are not playing the perfection game but the game of improvement. Which means that the key idea is how you can make something better, not perfect.

Keep that in mind.

All my best,
Konstantinos Karypidis
