In the face of challenges
Do not panic.
Never panic when the situation is dire.
However bad your circumstances are
Things will get better
But only when you don’t panic.
It is natural to experience anxiety when
–we are faced with disappointment, stress, terror and disaster.
But stop. Do not
Take in a deep breath. Assess the situation.
Look at the challenge
Survey your trial from all angles.
Tell yourself that “Things will get better.”
When you are drowning in debt
When your lover fails you
And your test result is woeful
And the medical diagnosis is depressing
Or you can’t find a job
Or just lost your job
Or your goods are not selling
Or you can’t produce as you planned:
Stop. Do not panic.
Inhale deep. Exhale fully.
It is not over. It is just the beginning.
When you don’t panic
Things will get better.
When I lost the use of my leg three months ago, I truly thought it was over.
I was sad. I felt helpless:
My leg is fully recovered.
And all the anxiety I gave myself did not help.
Stop being anxious.
Everything is alright.
