How To Welcome Adversity

How To Welcome Adversity

How To Welcome Adversity

everyone i'm tatiana i just got off
from instagram i did a live video i
answered some questions there and
someone asked a question that i thought
i would share with you because i know
many of you might share this
concern or this question
and so i thought it might benefit you
and the question was
tatiana how do you stop yourself from
giving up when things get hard
and the question was in relation to
business
but really could be a question about
life in general
so in relation to business
you first must understand that when you
are
on this journey of entrepreneurship
starting your business you have to
antikipate
that things won't always go your way 100
of the time
that there will be situations where the
unexpected happens
surprises that
you welcome and surprises that you don't
welcome
there will be problems and issues and
it's just this is normal this is part of
being a business owner
you know it's not always going to be
perfect in fact it's part of life the
only people who don't have problems are
the ones in the cemetery
so i think that
in our society we
not our society but we just we fear
problems we think that problems are the
reason why we're not happy and fulfilled
and we don't have all the things that we
want in our life and why we're miserable
and xyz but
they don't have to be it's they only are
if you make them that way if that's what
you tell yourself and so i have a
different way of looking at problems i
welcome adversity and it's just the way
i reframe it you know i just reframe it
in my mind because that's what serves me
it's independent of what is the truth
because who really knows what the truth
is i feel like
everyone's got their own form of truth
and that shapes their reality
so
i've chosen mine and this is what really
serves me in both business and personal
life
so
these problems these these challenges in
life these are just stepping stones in
my evolution
they're what make me stronger
and the reason being is because if i
just lived life without any struggle
well i wouldn't i wouldn't really evolve
much would i
if everything's just handed to me
everything's so easy
then how would i really grow
it's only when you face adversity that
you now have to figure things out you
now are met with something that you've
never faced before you've got to learn
how to
move past it push through it figure it
out
and that helps you to become
wiser more knowledgeable it helps you
gain experience and that experience is
valuable
that experience is what is going to help
you to
to become a better business person
in fact you know if i lost everything
tomorrow you know all my business all of
my money all of that stuff i wouldn't
have lost my most valued asset
and that's in here it's in my mind and
and what it is is the experience that
i've gained along the way
because with that experience i can now
recreate i can duplicate i can build
success again but much faster because of
that experience
and so
all experiences in life i welcome some
of them are really amazing and awesome
and fun and some of them are challenging
and
hard and difficult but they equally
contribute to my growth
because i'm experiencing more i'm
learning more i'm discovering more about
myself about the world
and so when it comes to these challenges
i realized that this is just a stepping
stone in my evolution and i i welcome
them because it's what allows me to face
myself you know i always like to
remember this it's not about what you
get it's about who you become
i think oftentimes when in that
situation we're desperate or broke we
think it's all about the money i want to
become successful so i can make more
money
and it's true at that stage in life but
once you've met your basic
needs
there's food on the table there's a roof
over your head you've got some money in
the bank
you have some money to have a social
life and enjoy yourself then you achieve
a level of comfort
when you achieve that level of comfort
in your life then you don't value money
as much as you did when you didn't have
any
and then what you start to value more
is who you can become on this journey of
success
if your goal is to earn a million
dollars you start to value wow the
transformation that has to take place in
order for me to be the person who
receives that million dollar check
because it's not i can't just be who i
am today because who i am today i don't
have a million dollars in order to
become the person who receives that i
have to grow
i have to become more resourceful i have
to become more creative i have to become
conscientious i have to learn how to
create solutions for problems i have to
add massive value to
people to clients to
to customers to my community because you
always have to remember that
you're not going to receive masses value
in the form of money money is a form of
value unless you give massive value so
whether you're giving services products
whatever way it is that you're going to
earn your value there's an exchange that
takes place and so if you want to earn
massive amounts of wealth you have to
give massively you have to contribute to
the lives of others and so you realize
that this is all going to help me to
evolve into this person that i'm capable
of becoming and that's your motivation
that's why you do it because you start
to realize that yes like the money is a
byproduct
it's really who i'm becoming that is
what's pushing me forward and pulling me
towards this end goal
i'll share with you a story
there was a family
that was keeping an eye on two cocoons
antikipating the arrival of two
beautiful butterflies
and the children were amazed at how
much effort it took the poor butterfly
to squeeze itself out of the opening of
the cocoon
so they decided to spare the second
butterfly the struggle
and they very delicately cut open the
cocoon and scooped the butterfly out
but the butterfly was never able to fly
it turns out that that very struggle
squeezing out of the cocoon
is what
pumps the wings and activates the
butterfly
so
this is to show you that not all
struggle
is without purpose
that there's some struggle in life that
really
is purposeful and that can help you grow
and transform into a beautiful butterfly
and whether it is a problem that has
purpose or doesn't have purpose is up to
you it's up to how you frame it it's
about it's up to how you see it your
perception of it
because the reality is
the problem it's not negative or
positive it's what you decide it is it
just is it's just there it's just the
thing that happened in your business
you choose how you view it and that's
really powerful and so um this is the
way i view and i welcome adversity in my
life because again
what persists resists and so if i'm
always trying to
resist problems resist struggle resist
adversity then i'm going to see that i'm
perpetually creating more of it
more problems and more challenges and
more unexpected unwelcome situations
show up in my life because i'm resisting
it but if instead i can just
see it observe it not judge it and just
it is what it is and
that's okay and i'm gonna get through it
i'm gonna resolve it i'm a capable being
i'm gonna figure it out
if as long as i'm willing to
and i just say okay this is the
situation
great let's let's figure it out
instead of resisting it and trying to
avoid it and run away from it i'm just
seeing it for what it is accepting it
and that way i'm actually
experiencing it
and
i'll notike that there's fewer problems
and fewer challenges in my life
because i stopped resisting it
so the last piece is
you have to have a compelling why
if you want to make money or become
successful just because that's not good
enough
because then the moment challenge
strikes
you're going to say this is too hard i'd
rather go back to what i was doing
before but if your why is strong if you
have a compelling vision for your future
for your what it is the reason that you
want to achieve your goal if it's juicy
if it's important if it's of enough
value to you
then no matter what is in front of you
that's nothing
nothing is going to stop me from making
that happen my why is so strong my
reason is so strong
that nothing's going to stop me
so having a strong why is key
and so i encourage you to think about
that like what is your reason is your
reason just because you think you should
be successful is it just so that you can
prove your parents something is it that
you just you want to feel respect you
know like you have to have a strong why
and it has to be something that comes
from you not trying to prove something
to someone else that comes from you and
if you can if your why has something to
do with serving others even better
because we often do more for others than
we do for ourselves that's why children
are oftentimes a really great why
so that's what i want to share with you
guys and i guess the last thing is that
you know i i know a lot of people and
even more
references and stories that i've read
and seen
of people who come from very humble
beginnings and circumstances that are
very very difficult and they create
massive success in their life
because they've chosen to use that
struggle to motivate them
to pull them towards their goal for them
success was an option for them it was
necessary
and
so they
adopted the mindset of they could have
said oh poor me i'm never going to be
successful because of my circumstances
i'm not even going to try
they decided and said that because of my
circumstances i must be successful i
must overcome my current situation i
must
evolve and grow into what i'm capable of
growing into and becoming
and
those people are extremely inspiring
because they didn't have they had all
the excuses in the world
right but they chose not to use those
excuses
because they knew that it would just
hurt them
they chose to instead focus on what it
is that their goals are and just take
action and they overcame adversity time
after time after time after time
and that's what makes them inspiring
those who don't have struggle in life
often aren't
the people that we look to for
inspiration
so
that tells you something
we all relate to struggle we all relate
to challenge because it's part of life
and we're inspired by people who
who can overcome that
and who understand
who understand that
yeah it's just a process
and
they can work through it
all right guys thank you for watching i
have another video uh that i'll share
with you on the mindset of success i'll
link in the description box for you if
you enjoy this video i think you'll
really enjoy that one because i really
do tok about
how it is the foundation if you want
success in your life it all starts here
because all the tools and strategies and
tactiks they're all great but they're
all going to be funneled through your
mind and your mind is what's going to
determine whether you take action with
those or you don't whether how much
effort you put into it
it all starts here so when you can
really work on this and cultivate the
mindset of success
you're already halfway there you're more
than halfway you're 80 there so then it
just takes a little bit of strategy
all right thanks for watching guys take
care
