Everybody faces challenges, but only some are able to successfully overcome them.
If you are looking to build a strong personality, consider using Assertiveness and Self Confidence Training Course delivered by pdtraining in Christchurch, Hamilton and other cities in New Zealand.
There are only two ways to handle a difficult situation that is recurrent. One is to get on top of it and beat it, and the other is to be under it and carry its burden. If your earlier efforts for resolution have not brought results, you will need to consider how your personality is affecting the resolution. Do people take you seriously? Do they believe you can be convinced to change even when it is not in your benefit? Are they confident that they can get their way every time at your expense?
Image the Impact of an Enhanced Personality
Every action precedes a thought. If you believe you lack the qualities to handle challenges, consider enhancing your personality. It will make your life more satisfying and smooth.
If you are currently facing a challenge, image how would it help if you would speak out to claim your rights, if you tell a difficult person that his/her behaviour is damaging to others and himself/herself, if you refuse others when you believe accepting would be confining. Imagine the results of your behaviour. It must make you feel good without hurting others.
Get to the Root Cause to Gain Control
If a person or a situation makes you unhappy, try to get to its root cause. What are the circumstances or who are the people who are impacting you negatively. Once you have identified the root cause of the problem, determine your stance on it and act on it immediately. It might need you to be outright or even stubborn, but its resolution will help you to gain back peace.
When speaking about your preferences or correcting bad behaviour by others, make sure that you are rational, unbiased, humble, and yet assertive. Do not accept others’ efforts to ignore your discomfort, but, at the same time, do not allow yourself to make others discomfort. Your goal is to regain control over how others behave with you or how a difficult situation impacts you. Stick to it and you will find that people will adjust to the changes over time.
Believe in Your Strengths
Believing in yourself is a way of life that will help you to achieve the most difficult tasks in life. Every person has some strengths and some weaknesses. If you believe that with your strengths, you can beat your weaknesses, then you will have the confidence to accomplish any task.
It is healthy to make consistent efforts to overcome weaknesses. It is a good morale booster. For instance, if you do not like to wake up early in the morning, force yourself off the bed at five in the morning. You have been believing that you cannot do it, but you will find that once you do it, your belief about yourself will change. The second time you do it, you will feel more in control of yourself. You don’t necessarily need to wake up at five every morning, but it is a good activity to alter your perception about yourself. Choose a weakness and use your will to overcome it. Your confidence in yourself will skyrocket.
