The eighth letter R in TOGETHER stands for “Reaction.“
We have reached the eighth and final letter in the word TOGETHER.
A “reaction” is defined as “an action performed or a feeling experienced in response to a situation or event, a process that initiates change.”
You subconsciously and passively choose how will react to any given situation and how that situation will affect you. Consider taking a conscious, active approach for your reactions instead. Be actively engaged in co-creating the life you desire.
“How easy or difficult your life will be moving forward during and after the COVID19 crisis is directly dependent upon your reactions.”Stephen Lesavich, PhD
The Covid19 virus has created adversity for you, your family, your friends and for all of us worldwide. Adversity is a “serious or continued difficulty or misfortune.” How are you going to react to the adversity you are facing?
“It is your reaction to adversity, not the adversity itself, that determines how your life’s story will develop.”Dieter F. Uchtdorf – aviator and airline executive.
Adversity creates hardships, and challenges in your life you need to react to and overcome. Are you going to react in a positive, productive way or in a negative, destructive way because of the Covid19 virus?
“Life is 10% of what happens and 90% of how you react to it.”Charles R Swindoll – pastor, author, educator.
The choice is yours. How will you decide what your reactions will be? Will your reactions allow you to become a victor or leave you as a victim? Will you react with fear or courage? Will you react with anxiety or peace? Will you react with anger or calm?
So, what steps can you take to formulate appropriate reactions to the adversity you are facing?
Reacting to adversity in your life in a holistic manner with the proper reaction attitudes way will create a positive impact in your life and in the lives of anyone you encounter.
Remember, we are all in this TOGETHER. Things will get better.
Stay safe, stay healthy and stay home…
