Overcoming Adversity (2 of 2)

Overcoming Adversity: (Part 2 of 2)


(I know you’re in suspense!)

Part 1 offered this thought: People don’t live up to their potential because they are told they can’t!

How do we overcome this negativity?

The power of success is within us and we have to understand that we all face adversity regardless of where we come from which is why adversity is a natural occurrence.

1.     Self discipline: develop a mental attitude that controls emotions, sexuality, eating; control what you say by thinking before you speak and focus your mind on positive actions to gain mental peace.

2.    Acquire a pleasing personality that improves your likeability factor.

Personality is within your control and causes people to like or dislike us.

Personality can be controlled through your reactions, direction of your enthusiasm, and through self discipline.

Let other people speak instead of leading the conversation (Listen) and be careful of the sarcasm that is used during conversation because it can trigger negativity in your audience.

Hint from Napoleon Hill:

  • Finding fault with the world at large is not pleasing to others and indifference when others are speaking is resented
  • Don’t flatter where it is not deserved because it comes off as insincere and you lose trust
  • Don’t talk about your problems

3.    Most of all: Uncompromising faith in seeing your success out till the end.

Being able to see something where there is nothing is what makes the average great.

Defeat is life’s test to you.

Get rid of all doubts and you will get as far as the amount of faith you have in succeeding.

4.    Always exceed expectations!

5.    Lastly, form an alliance with a trusted co-partner whether your Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother, Wife, Husband.

As long as you have full trust and clear communication your togetherness will provide a compounding of success.

This will get you past your limit and get you to the next level.

I have faith that you will embrace your struggles and choose not to take the line of least resistance.

Overcoming Adversity: (Part 1 of 2)

Overcoming Adversity: (Part 1 of 2)

Adversity and Defeat: two terms no one wants to face. Why?

Because it takes too much effort – but, unfortunately, none of us will get through life without facing these obstacles.

I outline methods here that help us deal with these uncomfortable moments in life.

Adversity and Defeat are the universe’s way of disciplining us!

A direction is provided for us to follow, but we have to be aware of the new opportunity, and stay alert instead of letting the moment get us down.

We need to set a personal initiative to force our will to achieve no matter the resistance.

We can accomplish this with pure enthusiasm and by putting our inner strength into action.  Knowledge is power but only when we use it.

The key to overcoming adversity & defeat is to keep a positive mental attitude (I can, I will).


  • Refrain from controversy
  • Set your mind to positive
  • Ask leading questions to draw people to what you want
  • Have a good laugh when irritated
  • Have gratitude for your experiences
  • Focus on the can-do, strength grows from struggles
  • There are no unprofitable experiences
  • Life is an education
  • Comment positively on others
  • Be critical about oneself
  • Do not accept anything that you do not desire
  • Stay engaged in your purpose in life

More Techniques:

If you feel sorry for yourself due to certain specific circumstances, find someone who is in a worse off position in life and understand that it could always be worse.

Choose a role-model that you look up to and emulate them, we all admire someone so why not choose the best.

Whatever the mind can conceive it can achieve.

“Your thoughts can become reality if you let them which is why we need to fight the negative and concentrate on the positive.”

Why do most people fail to live up to their potential?

Because they are told that they can’t!

We are told that we can only get so far in life or that we have to work to climb the ladder of success and that there is a system that we need to follow to get to our dreams.

These forces of culture have trained us to formulate our attitudes towards the world around us in a certain way which is why we have to train ourselves to be positive – it doesn’t come naturally.

Tune in for the conclusion!
