You’re tired, stressed and fed up of trying.
You feel like you’re getting nowhere, and that life has kicked you in the shins. I know I often feel like that at the worst of times and just want to give up.
You have no reason to feel so down other than the feeling of getting nowhere. You have support from the people who care about you and have no real excuse of feeling so low.
You feel that although others may be optimistic about your situation, you see it as a dead end. Everything looks dim from every corner and you feel like there is no escape from this terrible feeling.
But the truth is there is always an escape.
No matter how tricky the situation or how hard the problem is there is always a solution.
Sometimes you just need a little faith and a little optimism to get you out.
Difficult times do pass, and life moves on.
Things do get better and remember hard times will end if you carry on trying, making that positive change.
Carrying on through difficult times even if you don’t see a change gets you closer to your goal without you even realising. Just because you don’t see any change or improvement, it doesn’t mean you’re not succeeding.
The best way I carry on when things get tough, for example when studying for exams or even reading all the books I have set to read, is by having my goals and things that I hope to achieve permanently in mind.
I constantly remind myself that with perseverance and a good attitude things will change and for the better. I remind myself how good it would feel to have succeeded.
To my mind, nothing feels better than to overcome a big hurdle and come out triumphant.
Everyone gets a bit disheartened sometimes. Often we don’t realise that it is when things get tough that you are actually getting closer to what you want.
Difficulty comes with success, and you cant be great and succeed without facing problems.
So, when things get difficult and times are hard, remember your goals and just how close you could be to reaching and tasting that sweet success!
