Dealing with Bad Situations

We all have to deal with bad situations from time to time.  However, there are several things we can do to help us through the hard times.

  1.  Remain flexible – Being overly rigid can cause the bad situation to get worse, while flexibility allows us to find solutions.
  2. Perspective – Life is not fair, how you view your situation will determine how you feel and how well you can deal with the situation.
  3. Learn from the situation – Learning from what is happening might help you avoid similar situations or at least help you resolve similar situations quickly in the future.
  4.  Ask for help – We all need help from time to time, so don’t be afraid to ask for it.

The Noticer by Andy Andrews

Jones is one of the main characters in the book.  Jones notices things about people and helps them in times of trouble.  He teaches people how to gain a new perspective on their life.  He shows them how to be the person they want to be.  Many lives were dramatically changed, due to Jones.

A few of the principles taught by Jones are:

  • The struggles of life give us the strength we need to succeed in the future.
  • Read about the lives of great people, read about their struggles, their failures, and their success.  The experience of others is the best teacher.
  • If you continually focus on your needs, you will continually find things you need.  Instead, focus on the blessings you already have in life.  Gratitude will fill your life with happiness and abundance.
  • Happy and enthusiastic people are able to influence those around them.

This was a fun book to read and it’s defiantly a book worth reading multiple times.
