So, you’re having a great week with absolutely zero obstacles. Everything’s just perfect until you realize that ‘Uh-oh! This is just the calm before the storm,’ because a pit in your stomach tells you that something’s going to go wrong soon because so much good luck is somehow suspicious. And sure enough, there it is!
The obstacle. The ‘boss level’ that’s so difficult to beat. The storm.
And just like that, your ‘amazing’ week goes down the drain because all you can think about at the moment is how to deal with this snag you’ve hit, despite all the trouble you went through to avoid it.
Annoying, isn’t it? Especially when you’re almost done with the last of your work and somebody comes along and drops another pile of tasks that need to be completed within an unreasonably short period of time. Or when you think that you’re so close to getting what you want, only to have your spirits crushed? Or basically, everything in life that you think you’d never get over.
So, how do we tackle these ‘snags’ we hit every now and then? More importantly, how do we handle ourselves when we’re having a bad day? I’ve been through situations where even the most minor inconvenience made me forget about everything good that had happened.
So my question to you is, ‘Why do we focus on these rough patches more than we should?’ It’s not like fixating on everything that went wrong is going to magically fix things for us. Okay, we get an occasional hard level amidst all the easy levels that we breeze through, but isn’t that what life’s all about? How are things going to be interesting at all if we don’t have challenges to face? Can you imagine? Life would be so incredibly dull.
The more we look at it closely, the more we realize that hard levels are just normal levels that need to be played with more focus than normal levels would.
Maybe we need to be dramatic first, but we eventually do get over it. Sleep on it if you need to. The truth is, there is no handbook for the ‘boss levels’ life throws our way. We have to play these levels with just a little more careful planning than the easier ones. The same goes for any kind of hurdle we need to jump over, too!
Get, set, go!
