In The Face of Adversity

Often times we find ourselves in circumstances beyond our control; have to quickly decide howwe deal with what could be termed adversity and how we allow the outcome affect our lives. We soon learn that adversity is the success of the great recovering.


Napolean Hill says it best:


Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.

-- Napoleon Hill


My not so recent Internet Service Provider (ISP) problems began in June of 2014. At the time I never made the connection to what was taking place with my laptop since after a few tweaking here and there the problem appeared to have been solved.  However it continued intermittently over the next few months.


During the month of October in downloading sites I would get messages - Websites not vailable, the site has become unresponsive, your DNS is not responding, the details shows I am not connected (even though on my laptop it is saying I am connected and the icon is showing that I have  excellent strength). I certainly did not know what DNS meant. Now I do.


Process Of Elimination

So my coping skills kicked in. I internalized and thought about my situation. Getting all upset and angry would not help my situation so I walked away finding other things to focus on, emptied my mind sat very quietly and disassociated myself from the situation. I accepted the fact that I could not do anything about this particular problem.

In the process I learned a few things:

It would serve no purpose other than to make me ill if I were to become emotional. Then where would I be?  

Being quiet and free of worry about my adversity allowed me to quickly make some decisions I was struggling with for some time and my thoughts brought relief. 

Next I wrote to my ISP took the letter into their offices and as if by faith I happened upon the visiting regional supervisor. After listening to my woes he promptly started a process that was the beginning of solving my problems. 

The lesson is that in cases of adversity, find that little voice of reasoning inside, listen to that voice and act accordingly relying on the coping skills which we all posess. Realizing and accepting that some things happen for a reason and should be a lesson to be learned.
