Learn to circle your wagons.
Have you ever been confronted by some situation that has led to moments of deep frustration and intense anxiety?
I've certainly had my share.
I am fortunate that my military experience has really honed my adaptability and resilience.
Although surrendering is not something we were taught and for that matter I readily do, I will give any challenge my ultimate effort.
If for whatever reason I am still faced with impending failure, then and only then will I re-access surrendering.
Much like the circling of the wagons in the old westerns I too will do and try every possible solution before giving up.
It is only at this point (when the dust has settled), that I might accept the situation and surrender.
I then apply a regroup mentality and go from surrender to acceptance quickly.
I have found that by accepting a hard fought surrender, I am able to release all tension, frustration and anxiety.
It also allows time to create inner balance and gives me an opportunity to learn the lesson I was posed.
I believe every situation, no matter how dire.. has a solution.
Every battle won or lost have lessons to be learned.
Every success or failure also brings opportunity.
Make it a great dia!
