Let’s not sugarcoat this.
Somedays life sucks. Business challenges, personal problems, cash flow worries; troubling things happen to us all. No one is exempt from those unexpected challenges that leave us feeling scared, vulnerable, alone and even lost.
There comes a time when life throws at you something that’s hard to handle. Heartache, breakdown in health, unexpected losses.
Regardless of how strong you think you are, how confident you’ve been feeling there are times when it’s hard to keep smiling, stay positive and keep going.
But remember this, even if you feel utterly powerless…you’re not.
If you use the right approach you can adjust your sails and head for smoother water…
1.You can better your life by making yourself better
No one can live a life without some pain; but misery…well that’s a choice.
There was never a promise that life would be pain free or challenge free but within each of us is the power to develop meaningful ways of managing life when everything goes to hell in a hand-basket.
Some of the most painful things in my life have been the most incredible opportunities for growth. Make up your mind today that you won’t let wounds and hurts and pain destroy you. Don’t let problems control you, nor others determine your responses to life.
Decide not to surrender, nor to shrink, but triumph over all that comes your way.
Determine to come out the other side stronger and wiser.
Believe in great possibilities and to the degree you believe, it becomes your truth.
2.Follow an empowering philosophy
‘Don’t expect anything, then you won’t be disappointed’, is a terrible philosophy.
What’s so wrong with being disappointed? Disappointment, like regret is a useful feeling, reminding us of the vibration of energy we’re occupying. Uncomfortable feelings motivate you to fix whatever doesn’t feel good.
Disappointment, along with defeat can be the very light we need to show us a new way.
Expecting the world to be a supportive place; believing in your power to manifest a life you desire, makes success and happiness much easier to come by.
Expecting good things opens you to greater possibilities and opportunities. Nothing is too good for you. Set your sights as high as possible and determine not to allow disappointments to get in your way.
Expect wonderful things, believe you can have them, trust in the process and before too long you’ll begin to experience the evidence that it is so.
3.Begin each day on purpose
Without a strong purpose it’s easy to get crushed by a bad day, be wiped out by a bad month and annihilated by a year that seems to be going backwards. Having a strong desire for your future, something beyond next week or next month is a power that pulls you through desperate times.
Find a desire strong enough to full your mind your heart and your spirit and it will pull you towards it as powerfully as a magnet pulls iron. Miracles happen when your heart and soul work together filling you with great ideas that lead towards the fulfillment of your desire.
Use every challenge, every disappointment to transform yourself. Harness the incredible power within and manifest your greater reality. Don’t worry whether others believe in your vision, they have their own purpose to discover. Don’t let small minds persuade you not to have big dreams.
4.Change your mind…a lot
The best thing in the world is change. It’s a renewal that moves you from the old into the new. Change is that aspect of life that brings you what you want. Without it, there would be no progress, nothing to propel you forward to greater success and happiness.
Remember, that regardless of what’s happened in the past, it’s never too late to make changes of the heart and mind.
It’s never too late to think new thoughts about old experiences. Your thoughts create the bridge between your dreams to reality; from desire to fulfillment. It’s only by changing within that you can experience change in your outer physical world.
When something you’ve been thinking hasn’t changed or improved something, it’s a waste of your time and energy to stick with it. Renewal is called for.
Sometimes you have to find a new and better way to think, and do it daily if necessary. Start choosing new thoughts, those that produce greater health and happiness and move you towards the increase of all the good that life has to offer.
Think about it, those who are willing to change their mind, regardless of the times they live in, the circumstances that surround them or the place they call home are always moving toward a richer, more fulfilling life.
5.Managing the ups and downs of every day life
It’s not the one who can never see beyond the storms of life that finds himself in calmer waters.
Those who learn to use disappointments to their advantage, create a new personal philosophy and put it into action, or cultivate the habit of renewing their mind discover that nothing can stop them from living a joyful, fulfilling life. Believe you can, believe you deserve it, find the approach that works best for you and follow it.
Remember, you deserve to be your happiest, most successful self in every area of your life and I have a challenge for you: Make today your day.
