4 Not-So-Obvious Benefits Of Adversity

You have to look at what adversities do to you first, before you can find out ways to overcome them.


With a lot of adversities and disappointments, we build up anxiety and panic within us. When this happens we become a vibrational match to that experience.

Adversities often keep us away from taking action. When adversities come our way, we step into a state of paralysis because we are analyzing. Analysis is paralysis.

Benefit of Adversity n.1: Learn from them

Whenever you face an adversity, it’s all about how you perceive it. What lesson can be learned? All adversities will test your patience. It’s almost as if the universe is trying to see if you are who you say you are.

Once you see the complexity of what you think is simple, then you will see the simplicity of what you think is complex

The hardest thing in the world is simplicity. Many of our lifestyles have become so complex that adversities are inevitable.

Try to always see what positive can you draw from an adversity, because whenever you feel hopeless like something is happening to you, you forget your true power that you can imprint your intention on everything around you.

Benefit of Adversity n.2: Put things in perspective

Adversities can help you put things in perspective. What other alternatives are there? Whenever you focus on problems, you’ll have more problems. When you focus on possibilities, you’ll have more opportunities.

A lot of people are a vibrational match to adversities and setbacks. Why? Because they are expecting so much. Because they want everything right now and this attracts adversities into their lives.

Everything comes to us at the right time if we can only let go.

Benefit of Adversity n.3: Think about yourself

When we have an adversity, it frustrates us because we realize that control is an illusion. We don’t have any control over an external event. We only have control over our internal condition.

So, every time you will deal with an adversity, take some time to realize what is most important. Is this adversity really an adversity?

Benefit of Adversity n.4: Live in the NOW

When you face an adversity, you have to step forward because that is the only way to arrive where you were before. Instead, if you keep ruminating on what’s happened you’ll stay stuck in the past.

When you step forward, you align yourself to the present moment and the power is in the NOW.

Don’t forget to smile.
