Ray Dalio:

Please join me in welcoming Dr. Rosenthal

Norman Rosenthal:

Here then are the keys to handling any kind of adversity.

Number one – accept that thew adversity has occurred. We all have trouble accepting that bad things have happened, but until we accept it we really cannot fully process it.

Analyze the situation (including your contribution). The point that I am making is that a proper analysis of a difficult situation, or even catastrophic situation can lead you to the right conclusion, which means don’t panic, analyze.

Calibrate your response in proportion to the adversity. If you have got a mouse, don’t use an ak-47 try a mouse trap instead.

Regulate your emotions and stabilize your physiology. If you are hungry eat, if you are angry settle your anger down, if you are lonely call a friend and if you are tired take a nap.
