Everyone makes mistakes. It’s also true that unpleasant events happen to everyone at one time or another. In this article, I am including a list of resource books and courses to help you when recovering from bankruptcy or divorce. In fact, both I and some of my clients find these articles, books, and websites helpful.

I think one of the first things to realize is that the experiences of divorce or bankruptcy are a good opportunity to learn about gratitude. Of course, that’s in opposition to the fear and panic that sets in for a lot of people who go through these types of events. The truth is, focusing on the positive aspects of what you’re going through is a great step in the right direction. For one reason, it gives you the ability to see your processes through to the conclusion without a lot of excess stress and trauma.

I’ve read many studies that show how some people thrive in the face of adversity while others get stuck in depression and defeat. The latter is, of course, so easy to do. So, it’s up to each individual to take steps to see the silver lining in every situation. In fact, I believe that people who thrive in the face of adversity do ONE THING fundamentally “different” from those who give in to defeat. Instead of giving up, they embrace it and look for the silver lining! The same principles apply to whether someone has cancer or are wrongfully going to prison.

So, why not focus on the positive aspects of your bankruptcy while learning from it and becoming a better person? For instance, think about what you’re learning from the decisions and events leading up to your bankruptcy. Amazingly, these are lessons you can take away to improve the rest of your life.

Yes, bankruptcy is all about rebuilding your life. That’s why we work hard to help you bounce back and create a new and better beginning while rebuilding your life. In fact, that’s really the ULTIMATE GOAL of our office.

So, don’t just lash out and blame the system but instead turn inward to learn and reflect on how to be successful financially and in relationships. Unfortunately, some bankruptcy and divorce clients go into a phase of repeating the same habits that only create the same problems over again. Don’t do that. Instead, do your research and learn as much as possible about what you’re going through. However, always do it with an attitude of gratitude for the best results.
