    How important is it to develop ones ability to cope with reality successfully?

    I see so many examples of people building up their hopes and illusions with "positive thinking" ideas or religious non-sense which is quite often totally removed from what reality is all about and seldom takes into account factual causality ... since nothing ever happens with out some reason, all events always have to be based on some cause, or a combination of previous events. The magic moment is NOW, when we all have the opportunity the observe the future in the making and use our abilities to make positive developments even better and avert negative projections from impacting us full force.

    I've been having a similar discussion elsewhere on HubPages.

    I think it's very important to be grounded in reality and to deal with every day life successfully. I speak from experience because it's something I'm awful at tongue However, I also think there is a lot to be said for positive thinking and spiritual ideas but without the grounding in reality they will remain as just ideas...

    i think it is crucial. As the responder above mentioned, there is a danger in the "positive thinking" craze in that it is often just wishful thinking. I think we each need to find a balance between the two extremes. To see things as they are, as bad as they might be, but then to look beyond that to the possibilities and try to figure out how to change things in a positive direction. Change can't happen if we are pretending things are a certain way when they really aren't. That's how complacency happens.

    Do you mean, " how to cope with Adversity" ?

    But it is apparent, that you are averse to religion ... having lost hope, somewhere, at some point in life ... your concept of Reality, has thus, undergone a profound change... in you Treating Adversity, as the only Reality in life.

    Anyway, if you would care to read ...
    "Reality, Is The Truth of Being. Meaning, there are Good and Ugly Things ... which Constitute the Physical Reality of Life ...

    The world that surrounds us, is not, what we might like it to be ...
    Thus, the Ability to cope with Reality, in state of Adversity, lies in Hope ... and Hope is the other Name of God.

    You can experience this inexplicable phenomenon ... when you would have said ... Oh my God !
    [Help me]

    If the Help, apparently did not come ... it was the better for you ... for we cannot understand all the complexities of Existence and Being.
