Confront and Overcome the Unexpected in Business

1. Step up to the plate. A job loss or divorce may make you want to conceal what’s happening. Don’t. Accept what’s happened, move on and ask yourself, “What should I do?”

2. Be the batter, not the ball. Circumstances may lead to pessimism. Fight negativity, or nightmares could become real. No problem has ever been solved by worrying.

3. Keep your eye on the ball. Pressures FRESH views may lead to a frenzied response as you try to control every element of your life. Surrender. Let go of things beyond your control and focus only on those you can control.

 4. Listen to your coach. These are tough times. It’s easy to feel alone and isolated. Reach out for help from friends, family and/or professionals.

5. Step outside the batter’s box. When you’re in trouble, it’s tempting to use the tools that worked in the past. Instead, take a moment and look at things from a fresh perspective.

 6. Wait for your pitch. Today’s fast pace can trick you into equally speedy actions, reactions and decisions. Patience is more important than ever.

7. Become a home-run hitter. When you realize every crisis is also an opportunity, you’ll be able to knock those curveballs out of the park.
