Written by P.T.F


Every person has predicament in life, some cope with them quickly, continuing to enjoy every little thing, others withdraw into themselves and stop communicating with their loved ones. Being depressed for a long time can lead to negative consequences, so you need to pull yourself together and quickly resolve all the difficulties that worry you. In this article I will tell you what qualities help a person to overcome all life’s difficulties.

The Predicament – What is It?

Predicament are certain obstacles that arise in the life of every person. They interfere with the achievement of their goals, require effort and keep us in constant tension. Difficulties are very different – from the simplest to the most difficult. Some people are afraid of difficult situations, others calmly react to them and try to cope with them faster, believing that they make a person stronger and more experienced.

Sometimes overcoming the most negative problem opens up new opportunities, allows you to test your strength, allows you to learn from your mistakes and forms experience. To overcome all adversity, you need to have will and firm endurance. Sometimes a person disguises his negative qualities, but when faced withdifficulties, they manifest themselves, and then others begin to wonder how they could have made such a mistake in a close friend, brother, or relative.

Difficult moments make people vulnerable, but they also help to identify the weaknesses of friends, soulmate. Cowardly individuals who are too lazy to act and fight for their goal, follow the road of least resistance, they look for their own benefit in everything and strive for a quiet routine life. When trouble appears on their path in life, they choose the easiest way to solve it – they run away from it or load it onto the shoulders of relatives and friends.

There are also such individuals who, with any difficulties, begin to show their aggression. They speak negatively of those who created these difficulties, accuse them of all sins and threaten them. This should not be done, since all unpleasant situations must be treated calmly in order to overcome them more efficiently and quickly. Then you will earn respect, increase your self-esteem, and achieve success.

If you still find yourself in a difficult situation – tell yourself: “This will not last long”, “I will definitely cope with everything.” But there are also hopeless situations with which you need to come to terms and not blame yourself for failure.


Several Examples of Predicament

All adversities are different, they can be:

Material. Lack of money, lack of any property, there is no way to increase your fortune.

Professional. Loss of a job, demotion, too complex a work project.

If you stay idle and do not solve difficult situations, this will lead to prolonged depression.

Everyday problems are a completely familiar phenomenon that every person faces. The main thing is to find
the right way out and not despair. I will describe several exercises that will help you not to lose yourself, to easily get out of the depression and indifference.

When a person can completely abstract himself from the whole world, giving his body and brain time to rest,
he has endurance. The best way to relax is the Shavasanu yoga exercise. This is a very useful technique that quickly relieves fatigue and replenishes energy. This training should be done every evening when you get home from work or are excited about something.

I will list a few tips on how to successfully get out of any difficult situation:

Make a list of all your obstacles. Separate the real from the fictitious – the unreal, the contrived ones.

Try to talk to your difficulties. Ask why they are present in your life, think carefully about how to fix everything, make a plan of action. After carrying out this technique, tear the entire list into several parts and throw it into the trash bin.

Start living in the here and now. Concentrate your attention on what is happening in your life at the moment.

Enjoy these instant events as they will never be returned.

Find and fill knowledge, skill and skill gaps. You can engage in self-development on your own or sign up for courses, get the desired education. The main thing is to learn what is new to you.

Remember how all the felines usually lie. They completely relax, but are always on the lookout – at the slightest irritant, they are ready to take action.

Try to achieve the same relaxed state. With complete relaxation, you will feel that your skin freely envelops the skeleton, like a tissue.

3. Relax Your Mind

You can start this exercise only after mastering the previous one. Remember the relaxed state that you have achieved as a result of “Shavasana” – lightness and serene happiness. Do it again and come up with your own suggestion formula:

  • I am free.
  • I feel serenity and lightness.
  • This technique quickly restores all strength, helps to quickly cope with excitement, excitement, aggression, irritation, and
  • it also provides rest for your brain.
  • The more often you devote time to such a technique, the faster it will bear fruit – you will become calmer, and your willpower will be strengthened every day.

4. Keep Your Muscles Tense

This method is able to develop:

  1. patience;
  2. equilibrium;
  3. exposure.

Sit or stand, raise your arms and keep them at shoulder level. They can be pulled forward or spread apart.
Try to keep them for a certain time – 15-30 minutes.

If the muscle tissues are poorly developed, it will be difficult for you to perform this exercise, as there will be severe pain, so you need to have willpower to withstand this test and not put your hands down.

5. Walk Slowly

Take just three steps in a certain time – a few seconds, then increase it to half a minute. The maximum time interval is 15 minutes. The movement should not be interrupted, imagine that you are in a slow motion movie. This is a challenging exercise that targets every muscle tissue throughout the body. As soon as you get used to this technique, you immediately feel the power over your body. You can easily withstand any trouble.


What are the Typical Difficult Situations or Predicament in Life?

Anyone who has never worked has never faced trouble. So, I will list the typical unpleasant moments that often arise on our way:

New things are always scary. This is due to the fact that you cannot fight your fears. Learn to be stronger than them. Write down a list of your apathy and come up with a plan to get rid of them. Remind yourself constantly why you are not giving up.

Doubts often arise. This is completely normal. Some personalities very often doubt and stop acting. It is necessary to deal with uncertainty in your actions.

Doing several things at once. Some people are so busy with their self-development that they try to grab onto absolutely everything – learning, reading, learning languages, fitness classes, dancing, work. First you need to make a list, first list the most important skills, then the unimportant ones. Plan when and what to do, right down to the date and time.

When mastering one material, another is forgotten. Each skill must be trained to automatism. To do this, you need to perform special exercises and training.

Life difficulties are small stages in our life that test us for strength. They make us more determined and stronger.

4 Pro Tips to Cope with Predicament

To successfully get out of difficult situations, you need to have psychological stability, if you do not have it, I will tell you four secrets on how to develop it. It helps to withstand any trials, to keep control of your emotions, thoughts and actions.

1. Accept Reality

Do not feel sorry for yourself, as this weakness will become an obstacle that will prevent you from moving on. Pity robs us of fortitude.

3. Keep Pessimistic Thoughts in Check

Reason sometimes becomes our ally, but sometimes it acts as an enemy. If negative thoughts flood your head, you are unable to move on. Beliefs such as: “I can never do it”, “I can’t bear it” – prevent the solution of difficulties and the achievement of goals. Try to catch the moment when your healthy thought process turns into a pessimistic one.

If you feel panicked, quickly reflect on what you would say to your close friend if he was faced with this situation. Most likely, you will support him, try to cheer him up and offer your help.
