[New Blog] How to Achieve Great Success While Dealing With Adversity
Here’s a question for you: What are you made of? What are you really made of and how will you achieve great success? When push comes to shove, when the rubber meets the road, when the chips are down, and when you clear your mind what lies at the very core of your pillars of character?
Discovering Your Pillars of Character
You learn what you’re really made of only when things go wrong and you are tumbled, end over end, by some adversity or setback that hits you like a Mack truck coming out of an alley. Since your behaviors on the outside are the real indicators of who you are on the inside, only by observing how you behave when things go wrong can you tell what you really have inside you and of what your pillars of character consist of.
How to View Setbacks
Let’s make one thing clear at the beginning. Life is a continuous succession of both small and large problems. They never end. No sooner do you get control of one situation when you are hit by another. Life is a process of “two steps forward and one step back.” When you become a great success, you simply exchange one type of problem for another. No matter how smart and clever and careful you are, you’ll face challenges, difficulties and sometimes-heartbreaking adversities every day, week and month of your life.
And thank heaven for that! You couldn’t possibly have become the person you are today if you had not had to contend with adversity on your way up. Perhaps your chief aim in life and in your definition of great success is to develop a noble character, to become an excellent human being, to become everything you are capable of becoming. Only by contending with challenges that seem to be beyond your strength to handle at the moment can you grow more surely toward the stars and build upon your pillars of character.
Develop Pillars of Character and Clear Your Mind
Clear your mind – this is the starting point in creating great success in your business and personal like is in dealing with any difficulty is simply to relax – to clear your mind. Get yourself into a state where you’re calm and cool and in full control of your emotions and your begin to develop your pillars of character. Back off mentally, and become as objective as possible. Step back and look at the problem with a certain amount of detachment, as if it were happening to someone else. When you can clear your mind and analyze your adversities, you sometimes see opportunities to turn them to your best advantage.

Very interesting piece in today's Daily Telegraph about the benefits of Vitamin D. Written by scientist Oliver Gillie, he highlights that our "indoor lifestyle" benefits nobody.
I agree, and despite potential skin issues, I spent quite a while yesterday in the sunshine and used to spend much of much childhood out in the elements come rain, wind or shine. So much better than being stuck in front of a blasted computer.
I also, in part, put my father's longevity down to him having spent 60+ years by the seaside...
