A Simple Way to Face Adversity and Disappointment
We’re BIGG fans of The Celebrity Apprentice.
On the most recent episode, The Donald fired Debbie Gibson. In her exit interview, she said:
“Did my ego like that I was fired? No. But Mr. Trump can’t fire me from being Debbie Gibson.
So nothing is lost.”
We immediately looked at each other. What a great quote! What a great attitude!
We define BIGG success as life on your own terms. It’s a process of discovery which begins with your self and expands out from there.
Once you know who you are, you can deal with adversity and disappointment much more easily. You naturally retain your sense of self-worth and confidence.
No one can take that you away from you. You’re really cool. You know it. C’mon, admit it.
But our definition of BIGG success is more than a process of discovery. It’s also a tool which helps you define your world.
The terms you use can limit you or embolden you. They can tear you down or buck you up.
That’s why we like her parting sentence – nothing is lost. You can quickly take the sentiment and turn it into an acronym – NIL.
NIL means something that means nothing. It is something of no importance, no significance.
When things don’t go your way, invoke the term NIL to empower you.
Call up the term NIL to brace you when things aren’t going your way.
You can use the term NIL to remind yourself to stick your next out.
Get over the hurt when someone disappoints you by saying the term NIL out loud.
Things won’t always go the way you want. You may face adversity or disappointment. You can’t control it all. But you can control how you respond.
So use the term NIL to help you get past it. You’ll instantly recall that nothing is lost. You will remind yourself that you’re still here. You’re still you. You’re still fighting for the life of your dreams. That’s BIGG success!
