I always find it helpful to have some “rules” to live by. Short statements that help keep me pointed in the right direction, ready to handle the challenges of life.
And let’s be honest: challenges are an unavoidable part of life. Those who tell you that having struggles, challenges, or illnesses is an indication that you are doing something wrong? They are wrong and misguided. Life is going to challenge each of us… right up until we die. Which every one of us will do.
So the question is how we live our lives. Today. Right now. Regardless of what life is throwing your way.
What we often do, in the face of a challenge: Worry, Complain, Avoid. All three keep us stuck, frozen in place and to the challenge ahead of us.
So, I have decided instead, to adopt the rule of “Act or Accept.” I will either act toward resolution, or I will accept where I am. And the acceptance? It need not be permanent. It is about where I am right now. It may be waiting for a possible action.
Let’s talk about this rule and how to apply it. Listen to the podcast episode below.
