“Guy Neyens at Tiny Buddha suggests his own four step process for overcoming the curveballs of life. Guy’s four steps are simple, but work well when used in combination:

  1. Accept and let go.
  2. Observe and decide.
  3. Face your fears and take action.
  4. Practice gratitude.

Rule #1 suggests that we stop blaming ourselves for getting into these predicaments. What happened in the past should stay in the past. Second, you should look at the problem from a detached, unemotional viewpoint, and gather all the facts. Third, you need to get over whatever preconceptions or fears you might have, and enact a solution. His fourth step though is my personal favorite:

You may label problems as such because dealing with them takes you out of your comfort zone. Dealing with them in the correct manner means you are growing as a person. So, learn to be grateful for the challenges in your life, because they make you stronger.”
