When the going gets tough, the tough get going. We’ve all heard this saying, and to many it’s just cliche. If you stop and take a moment about the meaning…you may find yourself molding your person to become stronger and better. We all go through difficult times and are placed in difficult situations, but how you deal and handle these obstacles is strictly up to you. Tough people will take action, yet those who are weak will be afraid to take a step towards a risk. We have 60,000 thoughts swimming through our heads each day – deciphering the useful thoughts from the confused and negative ones can be a task in itself when they’re all competing for your attention.
Are your resolutions from the start of the year in full swing, or do they need a little dusting off and a new sense of self-belief injected into them? When we take time out to set our goals, whether they be during a drunken moment on New Years Eve, or during a rainy afternoon when you have some time to reflect, nothing can stand in the way of you and these moments of self-confidence and determination.
In hard times, there are a few things that I like to live by: empowerment, perseverance, encouragement, energy, human life, Christ, and completed goal milestones. Positive impact can come into our life by any mean and at any stage of our life. It can be a solemn oath to prove to yourself that you can do really anything you want to. However, often when we translate these desires into everyday life and we have the more mundane priorities taking over, or we experience periods of self-doubt, persevering and taking the road less traveled can seem daunting and at times, an impossibility.
If you’re feeling this way, don’t give up. You are made of tougher stuff. Just remember, every successful entrepreneur, actor, athlete, mother or artist thought the same before they succeeded. The challenges are there to teach you something, if you’re able to view them that way.
In my quest to boost my personal growth, I hope to inspire and support you through your process!
