However, what distinguishes successful people from the rest is perseverance ; an attitude that draws on patience, learning and self-reflection. If you are going through a difficult stage in your business, personal life or work, you should know some tools that help you overcome these crises and turn them into another step to succeed. Take note:

1. Make small improvements in your life

If you feel too much pressure at work or at home, try changing some things that increase your level of stress and anxiety. For example, or fix those papers that have you worried. Identify those pending that bother you in different areas and define which ones are easy to attend; You will notice that the majority will take you less than two hours and that it will mean a great change in your life.

2. Lean on positive people

The least you need in these moments of crisis is to surround yourself with people with a negative attitude. If you do, you will absorb its bad vibes and only increase your frustration. On the contrary, positive people may be just what you need to transform your mood and see things from another perspective.

3. Get away from the problem

If you have a routine, it will be very difficult for you to stop thinking about the difficult situation you are going through. Therefore, it is best to perform an activity that you normally do not do. You could take a few minutes to walk in a park or maybe take a walk around a museum; that is, you must “change airs”. You will return to the office with new ideas and solutions.


4. Don't take it personal

It is the wisest advice your friends and family have given you. When you have a problem with a person or you face a failure, the most common is to turn this situation into a reminder of your defects and limitations. “I'm not good at this” or “that person hates me” are common phrases. To get ahead you will have to stop thinking like this, be empathetic and try to understand why it happened or why the other acted that way.

5. See the good things

When we are going through difficult times we tend to see everything black. This is how we stop visualizing the good that happens around us. Take a few minutes to calm down and think about the positive things. Try to write and read them from time to time. It will serve as a reminder that not everything is wrong.

6. Meditate

This exercise can be extremely relaxing and inspiring. Start every day meditating for about five minutes. Use that time to focus on your breathing and your body. Let the thoughts pass and avoid judging them. Try to do it in a quiet place, just after getting up. It will reassure you.


7. Disconnect

If your company is experiencing a crisis or you have a serious problem at work, it is likely that you will find it difficult to put aside your computer or cell phone. However, spending a completely “unplugged” time, away from messages and problems could be the best vitamin. Turn off any form of communication for 10 minutes and do something you really enjoy.

8. Exercise

I already know what you think: “I don't have time or desire to run or go to the gym.” Yes, your agenda is saturated, but that's not why you should neglect your body and your health. In addition, exercise serves to release endorphins, which translates into an excellent therapy to expel your anger or sadness through your movements.

9. Search for your mentor

As we always advise, in your career as an entrepreneur and professional it is essential that you have this figure. It can be a friend, a teacher or a relevant personality in your sector; The important thing is to be someone with experience and to be honest enough to talk to you with the truth. Relieving yourself with him or her will give you a sense of peace, and you could also receive advice that allows you to alter that terrible course you are following.

10. Find the root cause

When you are going through a difficult time it is normal for you to blame everyone, to let off steam with your partner and with your friends, and that you are against anything that is put in front of you. The most advisable thing is that you feel to think and analyze what is the reason why you have those feelings. Doing so will help you understand if it is something that you can control or something that you cannot and that you should accept and let go. There lies the wisdom.
