Sharing the love

There will always be ups and downs in life. At times, it may seem impossible to get through hard times. I’m here to remind you that even in the midst of the greatest storm, you can ride it through.

There is no going around it.

Yes, you will meet upon tough times but the ultimate factor that determines how you get through hard times is your reaction to bad events in your life.

People who are successful in life choose to push through amidst disappointments. On the other hand, unsuccessful people choose to give in to the circumstances and call it a day.

A true winner is one who never quits

The moment you decide to give up, you lose. Make a decision to be resolute and resilient to face any adversity so as they come you can rise above.

How can you persist and push when the situations seem bleak?

5 Ways to get through hard times:

1. Get through hard times by recognizing that obstacles are essential

You need to understand that obstacles are essential.  I don’t believe you can be successful without having some kind of tests. Through these tests, you will develop the character that is needed for success.

Nothing that is worth having or nothing that will give you ultimate happiness in life will be naturally easy to do. You will always have to push yourself aggressively, passionately and consistently.

Really take look at all the successful people in life. Did they find success easily?

No, they all have something in common. They had a struggle at the beginning of their life. There were situations in their lives that could have prevented them from pushing through but they remained focused.

2. Get through hard times by challenging the critics

There are many things in life you don’t control. One of those things is the opinion of others. People will always talk about you. They will talk about the bad in your life, and when it is not enough, they will make up stories about you.

However, don’t listen to what people say.  Ignore the critics. People can say whatever they feel like. As a matter of fact, it is a right.

They are entitled to their own opinions and you can’t control or influence what they are going to say because you could be the nicest, kindest person in the world, there will always be naysayers, dream killers, energy suckers out there.

What you control is your reaction. you can always ignore their words

Confident successful women like Oprah Winfrey came from a poor background, she faced many adversities.

So many people discouraged her and told her she wouldn’t make it. She has been through hell and back. Did she give to any of these situations?

No, she kept pushing on. She fought for her dream because she knew what she wanted and she decided that nothing was going to stop her.

Tyler Perry had done many productions, put out his all but didn’t get the results he wanted. he failed. Did that stop him? No. He pushed, he pushed until success came.

Nothing is promised in life to be easy especially when it is to make you successful but you must make up your mind to fight the odds against you in life until you come out on top.

What’s your excuse? Stop living behind your problems. You need to stop listening and giving power to what people are saying negatively over you.

You need to stand up, take charge of your life; speak against all negativity in your life, practice positive affirmations and speak words over in your life even when things are going bad.

When it seems hopeless, have faith, trust God and he will bring you through. Don’t believe what man says but believe God and he says that you are purpose. He says that you are destined for greatness.

Take back your power by daring what naysayers say. Dare what they think of you. Dare your setbacks. Show yourself that you have what it takes. Be strong for you.

3. Get through hard times by Learning from the overcomers

What better way to find success, reach success by looking at the roadmap of other successful people.

You should take advice from successful people who would have gone through difficulties and know what it is like to feel overwhelmed.  You can learn from them.

You’re not going to live by their road map exactly as it is. No, because you are unique and your situation may be somewhat different from theirs, however, you can use it as a reference, as a guide to reaching success.

Don’t let ego get the better of you. Ask for help. No one in this life has achieved success on their own. At some point in time, they had to have received help.

Ask for help, find someone successful on the path you want to develop and make them your mentor.

4. Get through hard times by keeping focused on your goals

You may try at something and it fails, it doesn’t mean that you are a failure. It doesn’t mean that you should stop there; whatever it is that you’ve set out to do, continue on that path.

That is the time to be more focused on your goals. Don’t lose sight of what you want and don’t stop until you have accomplished.

Like someone once said, “In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.”

When you look at the things that are going wrong, the disappointment, the hurt, the problems, you will think about all other things that could possibly go wrong.

However, once you keep focused on your goals nothing can get you off track. Things may take off guard but not off track.

Be persistent in your dreams.

5. Overcome hard times by learning from your experience

Ask yourself what you can do when things are going bad, not as planned. You should try and learn from every situation in your life and see what lessons you can get from each difficulty.

Is it that you could have done something or said something differently?

What made the situation the way it is?

 Should you keep trying?

No one is perfect and it is in making mistakes that we build ourselves. Therefore we shouldn’t be resentful to constructive criticism.

When we are alone we tend to be our own critic. Give yourself constructive feedback; don’t be too hard on yourself.

How are you going to learn?

How are you going to know what needs to be adjusted?

Be open to feedback and learn from the situation as they come.  That’s how humans develop character.

You can get by through times. Don’t you think so?
