5 Strategies for Personal Empowerment in Difficult Situations

When you find yourself in situations where you are exposed to negative energy, you can still control your own sources of positive energy. Lifehack offers some ideas:

  1. Look for the good that does exist. When you deliberately look for good, you will find it.
  2. Avoid taking the behavior of others personally.  Know that what you’re getting from them could have nothing to do with you.
  3. Remain calm even when others are not. Stay grounded and avoid saying or doing anything you might regret.
  4. Ask for what you need. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no.
  5. Don’t make requests of people who are incapable of responding appropriately. That’s a setup for disappointment.
