Seven Strategies to deal with Crisis

Join in the fun at WriteTribe Festival of Words – a seven day blogging challenge – 1st September to 7th September 2013.

The theme is to write about seven wonderful things that help shape our lives. 


There comes a time in our life where man is standing in a critical situation and does not know what to

This could be a financial or an emotional crisis. Man ought to stay determined on what he wants or desires from the situation, and he shall achieve it if he strives for it.

Today's theme is Period of Crisis

“I finally figured out that not every crisis can be managed. As much as we want to keep ourselves safe, we can't protect ourselves from everything. If we want to embrace life, we also have to embrace chaos.” 
― Susan Elizabeth PhillipsBreathing Room

There are seven strategies to deal when in crisis

  • Calm: First and foremost is to calm your mind. Take deep breaths and do not let thoughts take over your body.

  • Close your eyes: Science has proved that meditation or saying a short prayer helps. Closing one's eyes can be therapeutic and can avoid thoughts coming in since the eyes are shut. This also helps in calming the mind.

  • Comparison: Man is all about connections at an equal level. Alas, that never happens. Thus, making comparisons helps the mind to mute. Once silent, this soul can then strategize on how to deal with the crisis.

  • Communicate: Conversing is very important especially with your loved ones or friends. This helps an individual lighten his burden and helps him design a blue print for the crisis while taking input from your friend/loved one.

  • Creative: Creativity spurs when the mind is silent, and an individual is communicating.

  • Contravene: Do not get intimidated by suggestions. Go with your gut feeling.

“Feelings are your guide. Trust your feelings and learn to express them, and do not blame anyone for how you feel. Be yourself, observe yourself. Look to understand any crisis you have been in or will be in.” 
― Barbara MarciniakFamily of Light: Pleiadian Tales and Lessons in Living

  • Conclusion: Once a decision has been made. March ahead. Do not turn back.

An unstable condition in your life is a point where your inner strength is tested. You have to challenge yourself, and will be surprised by your potential.

Mantra for today: Challenges tend to strengthen the mind.
