Seven Tips to Deal with Challenges

Seven Tips to Deal with Challenges

Life is full of ups and downs. We’d prefer not to have many downs but that’s not life. Perpetual sunshine is waiting for us in heaven. Meanwhile, there will be lots of rain and all kinds of life challenges. How to deal with them, that’s the key here. Joy is not the absence of demanding life events, it’s the ability to deal with them. Okay, you say. How can we do that? The main thing whenever you meet any kind…

Do you remember a Robin Williams movie called Dead Poets Society? It was done in 1989 but it’s still one of my favorites. I especially loved how Robin Williams taught his students to look at things from different perspectives:  “Why do I stand up here?  I stand upon my desk to remind myself that we must constantly look at things in a different way.  You see the world looks very different up here … Just when you think you know…
