When tested by adversity, standing strong is at times a valid option for us to consider. Trusting our intuition, and believing in our abilities, we might wish to face difficulties head on.
By drawing on the inspiration of either successful points of reference in our field of work, or possibly an inspiring building known to us, we can adopt behaviour akin to standing strong.
In many instances by deciding not to flee we will discover a seemingly impossible obstacle is actually a minor hiccup and not capable of slowing our progress towards heartfelt goals.
What at first appeared as a mountain is in fact a molehill. Standing strong gives us the perspective of a fuller vision of the moment. From this we are able to manage to the best of our ability whatever truly needs to be dealt with.
Other options besides standing strong could revolve around letting go of the struggle before we get too ensnared in it.
Choosing when to deal with a challenge is not always a choice available to us, yet when it is we need to evaluate also the idea of waiting for the best moment for us. Few problems are so urgent to justify a panicked response from us.
