How to pick yourself up from a tough situation

Posted on Posted in 2016 Business Opportunities For You, What's Trending Now


No startup journey would be complete without an emotional meltdown — the kind that leaves grown men sitting alone in the dark while Adele blares in the background. While the comfort food may change, rock bottom always feels the same.

Major losses force entrepreneurs to make hard decisions. These decisions almost always turn your life to a new chapter where the stakes are higher and the wins are bigger. Here are steps you can take to pick yourself from a tough situation.


1. Go through an emotional detox
You’re a human, not a robot, so deal with your emotions first. Relive the situation — emotions and all. Monitor how you’re feeling at different points of the experience. Think about the overall state of mind this puts you in.


2. Write down the facts
Describe your situation the way a journalist would. Report the facts with no emotional charge. Write what happened and why — avoiding adverbs and loaded language. No need to think about what your decision will be at this point, just explain what’s happened so far.

3. Write down the lessons you learned
Our brains are wired to dwell on negative experiences, so why not put that mental energy to use? Even in the worst situations, there are always lessons to be gleaned. Jot these down. Identify small changes you can make to avoid similar situations. It might seem elementary, but it gives you a sense of control, which psychologists have identified as the number one contributor to happiness.


4. Create a plan based on facts
Now, you’re in a good state of mind to develop an action plan. First, jot down some options. Then, select your plan and define it step by step. Next, read it to ensure each item is driven by facts from the second step.

When something goes wrong, it’s easy to let emotions run the show. But don’t drown in ice cream — grab a piece of paper and get it all out. Once you do, you can examine the situation objectively, reframe it as a lesson and allow facts to guide your choices.
