I hope all of you are weathering the economic storm and coping well with the new challenges and stressful circumstances that it brings for each of us. Please remember that the 11 free seminars that I offer focus on a wide range of important issues affecting the lives of individuals and families within our community. Moreover, my seminars provide information that can help heal and restore relationships, resolve current or past childhood traumas, recover from grief, and address life-threatening addictive behaviors. Each presentation will educate and inform the populations you serve, enlighten the members of your church, organization and association or serve as an in-service training that will enrich the knowledge base of your staff, lay/stephens ministers, or employees. Please feel free to call me if any of the topics in my "Road Map For Life Seminars" would be of value to you and a group of your choice.

Eleven seminarsTop 10 Ways to Handle Adversity

We've all experienced difficult times in our work or home lives, often through events and circumstances outside our control. But like great trees, humans grow stronger when exposed to powerful winds. Here are 10 suggestions for dealing with the hard times when they happen.

1. Take responsibility. Assume an "I can do something" attitude rather than pointing fingers. If nothing else, you can control your own response to the situation.

2. Limit the focus. Don't let the problem become all encompassing. When you compartmentalize the difficulty, you can focus on a workable solution.

Recognizing Victimhood

Samantha doesn't realize it, but there's a victim lurking inside her. Though she wears a sunny disposition outside, inside, the perky 42-year-old mother is resigned to three ideas:

  1. It's too late in her life to go back to college like she always wanted to. She'd look ridiculous, and who has the time, anyway?

  2. Her ex-husband is to blame for her financial problems and for her children's disrespectful behavior.

  3. No matter what she does—no matter how many self-help workshops she attends or how much inner work she does with herself—things are not really ever going to change for her.

Go to full story.
