100DC Day 53: Indomitable Spirit

100 Day Challenge: Indomitable Spirit“Indomitable” means impossible to subdue or defeat. What positive life changes would you experience in a world where you were unconquerable?

Automobile magnate Henry Ford said:

For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward.

Help us? Do you look at disappointments and complications that way? “Oh, awesome! I’m getting a massive amount of help today!”

It’s easy to be positive, confident, and upbeat when everything’s going your way. Not so much when Murphy’s Law has taken over your rulebook. But how we deal with less-than-optimal circumstances is who we really are — because that’s when our raw, untempered character is exposed.

Learning to master our actions and reactions in difficult circumstances can be life-changing.

Ups and downs of performance are often directly traceable to psychological ups and downs.

Given that our attitude and perspective is entirely within our control, cultivating an indomitable spirit can make an enormous positive impact on our results.

    It’s easy to see the “blessing” in a “curse” long after the fact. Do you have tips on how to do so when you’re in the middle of the crisis?

    What a great question, optimalmission. Perhaps my best tactic (although I’m not remotely an expert on this topic!) is to use past experience to keep perspective. When I realize that most of the crises of yesterday are already forgotten, it helps me to remember that the current crisis is probably momentary as well.
