4 Reminders You Should Take to Heart if You Want to Survive a Crisis

4 Reminders You Should Take to Heart if You Want to Survive a Crisis

If you’re anything like the millions of people who’ve been shellshocked by the coronavirus pandemic, chances are you’re currently in the process of piecing your life back together.  For some, this crisis is a speed bump on life’s long and winding road.  For others however, it’s is a full-blown obstacle.  It’s not easy figuring out what to do when livelihoods have been disrupted. To make matters worse, there are still many reasons to feel uncertain about the economy overall.


Don’t Give Up:

No matter what it is you’ve lost, or what kind of failure you’ve had to endure in the wake of the pandemic, don’t let these hard times defeat you.  Your potential is still limitless, and the pain of this moment can help you find resilience. Psychology Today defines resilience as “a quality that allows some people to be knocked down by the adversities of life and come back at least as strong as before. Rather than letting difficulties, traumatic events, or failure overcome them and drain their resolve, highly resilient people find a way to change course, emotionally heal, and continue moving toward their goals.” Here are a few things you can do to find the strength you need to keep pressing on:


1.    Put Your Failures into Context:

It hurts to fear for your health.  It’s dreadful to watch your business suffer because of circumstances you can’t control.  Even so, take a step back from the agony of this moment and remember, you have what it takes to survive.  You’ve faced challenges before, and they didn’t stop you from making progress.  You can face this challenge all the same. Just start by making one good decision after another.


2.    Turn Your Frustration into Fuel:

All energy in the human consciousness can be channeled into constructive momentum.  It doesn’t matter whether that energy as positive, or negative.  Joy can motivate inspiration.  Sadness can motivate compassion.  Pain can motivate caution, and even anger can motivate action.  Use the entire spectrum of your current emotions to accomplish things which produce helpful outcomes.


3.    Think Outside the Box:

Surviving any crisis depends on how well you economize, and improvise.  If previous ways of life are no longer sustainable in your current environment, be as practical as you can in the process of moving forward.  Be creative and efficient so that you can develop sensible solutions which transcend the urgency of the present.


4.    Listen for Life’s Lessons:

What doesn’t kill you, will only make you stronger. But strength can only be formed from a mind which is willing to learn from experience.  If there are any mistakes in the past which made you vulnerable to the dangers of this crisis, solve them with the advantage of hindsight.  You might not be able to change the bad things which happened previously, but you can prevent the same bad things from happening again.



Surviving difficult times is not an ability for the faint of heart.  It takes force of will to stand against the pressures of a crisis and overcome.  The bad news is, it’s not going to be easy.  The good news is though, that it’s entirely possible.  Many have endured much harder trials and survived.  So can you.  Fight the fear, keep calm and carry on.
