Why Heroes Need Adversity

How To Deal With Adversity

  • Competence refers to the ability to deal with the pain, and can be increased by reflecting and journaling on the problem, talking to someone about it, or read helpful information.
  • Relatedness refers to the social environment and the support of others. A feeling of relatedness comes by when you dare to be vulnerable, and share what’s going on with others.
  • Autonomy refers to the responsibility and freedom one has in one’s own life. If you can take active charge over where you are, and where you’re going in life, then you’ll be autonomous.

“There is no coming to consciousness without pain.”
