Life is not always easy. In fact, some of you today are going through the toughest season of your life. There will be seasons where we will suffer. There will be seasons of real pain. The real question is, how will you respond in those moments?
Life is hard sometimes. Easy is not an option but it’s worth fighting. It’s worth believing, it’s worth giving yourself a chance and never giving up. It’s worth it and you can do it. When life hurts, do not give up, just smile and say “I will get trough this!”.
You may be going through so much right now. Stress, anxiety, break up, failure and many other things but I want to encourage you, it’s always about what’s happening inside of you. Just because you feel afraid, it doesn’t mean you have to be afraid. Just because you feel discouraged, doesn’t mean you have to be discouraged. Just because you feel lonely, doesn’t mean you are alone!
Most of the time we overthink simple problems and imagine it as a huge mountain. Relax, stay calm and solve the problem patiently. Overthinking doesn’t do anything better.
The sentence out of your mouth is the story you are putting out.
- I am not gonna make it.
- I quit.
- Let’s get a divorce.
- Business is never coming back.
- I’ve made too many mistakes.
- I am a failure.
- Nobody can help me.
- It’s too late!
I don’t know what is coming out of your mouth but it’s a death sentence. And as you continue to confess it and as you continue to declare it, well.. don’t be surprised when it becomes true in your life.
You need to remember, this is not the first time you cried, this is not the first time you were short of breath, this is not the first time you didn’t see a way clear, this is not the first time you were hurt, this is not the first time your heart was broken, this is not the first time you didn’t have money.
When ever you feel or think any of the death scentences above you should decide to speak optimistically.
- Yes! I am gonna get back up.
- I am just gonna make things right. Not gonna give up and never give in! Pain is not permanent.
- I can get through this, I’m bigger than my pain.
- Say, I am gonna live to tell my story.
- This too shall pass. I will remain. I am not gonna quit!
- I will win, no matter what! This is just temporary.
You are going to prove everybody who tried to stop you, everybody who tried you pull you down, everybody who tried to kill your dream, you prove them that that are wrong. You keep coming back. Don’t give up, don’t give in, just get through it!
If you can work through your pain, I am guaranteeing you, on the other side, there is a reward. So break the odds and go forward because life is too short to regret!
