    How to Cope with Adversity and Shift Your Mindset

    How to Cope with Adversity and Shift Your Mindset

    Do you believe you can shift your life in a positive direction after you've suffered trauma? It is possible.  In this episode Diane talks to Marcus Aurelius Anderson about how to cope with adversity and how to shift your mindset after you've suffered trauma in your life.
    You’ll hear Marcus’s incredible story of overcoming trauma and the victim mentality.  Diane and Marcus also talk about adversity as a gift, the importance of discovering what is truly important and what is not and how there is truth all around us, if we are willing to listen to it.  As Marcus says, you could either be a victim of circumstances or change your mindset. Listen to this episode to learn some tools and mindset shifts to move forward in a positive direction.
    What you will learn in this episode
    Why we can't just push dark thoughts away and must acknowledge them How Marcus deals with coaching people who are resistant to change Why it's important to focus on all they ways in which you can succeed and not just why you can't How we can let obstacles and hardship limit our levels of happiness and fulfilment How adversity can cause us to shut down Marcus's advice for people feeling suicidal The adversity scale Quotes:
    “There's a lot more that we can accomplish if we can give ourselves that benefit of being a little bit uncomfortable sometimes.”
    “We can't just push these things away. We can't just act like they're not going on and intellectually put our fingers in our ears and say 'lalalalala' and hope it doesn't happen. We need to acknowledge and feel that pain and go to those depths, because the sooner we hit the bottom, the sooner we can build upon to get out of that pit of darkness and despair.”
    “It's okay to be happy, it's okay to be sad, just don't let that define you.”
    “In the end we are only as strong as the adversity we overcome.”
