A common response when things get difficult is to slow down or even stop making progress towards what we want.
While that can be a valid response sometimes, most of the time, it does not help us deal with our current situation in the best way possible.
If we stop making progress, it can:
- Intensify any frustration or stress we may be feeling.
- Affect our mindset and outlook on our current situation.
- Make us question our ability to accomplish what we want.
- Diminish our self-confidence, which in turn, will affect our actions.
The sooner we can address the difficulty of the situation we find ourselves in, the quicker we’ll be able to move past it and accomplish what we want.
