Coping mechanisms for men to live a better life at work (and at home)
The problem is not the problem.
Our ability to cope with the problem is the problem.
Why can one man deal with a challenge and get through it,
And the next man flounder and struggle under the same situation.
What is the common denominator between these?
What makes the difference?
As men we are too often stuck in a space of comparison.
Not being as good as some other man,
The pressure to ‘man-up’ leading us to ignore the problems and not deal with what the true issue is.
What makes us a better man?
What makes us more capable?
How we cope.
What we do when confronted with challenging situations.
These are our coping mechanisms.
These are skills we can learn,
Tools we can apply,
Ways that we shift our mindset to stop focusing on the problem and begin looking for solutions
Life is not what it’s supposed to be
It is what it is
The way you cope with it is what makes the difference to your life
