6 Rules for Surviving Adversity

By Michael J. Fox

EXERCISE – Especially if you have Parkinson’s disease. “We’ve learned it will prolong your ability to operate positively in the world.”

PACING – “It helps me think, the physical motion creates intellectual motion.”

ACCEPTANCE – “It isn’t resignation, and it freed me to actively deal with and endeavor to change my situation. I like to say, ‘My happiness goes in direct proportion to my acceptance, and in inverse proportion to my expectations.’”

HONESTY – Don’t remain silent or ashamed (about a disability). Once Fox went public with his condition, he says, “it was empowering to have people understand what I was going through. I immediately felt better.”

OPTIMISM – “I hate when people say, ‘You’re giving them false hope.’ To me, hope is informed optimism.”

HUMOR – “I laugh at (my involuntary movements and the scenes they create). There are times when I love these things.”
