You are what you think about most of the time. There are tons of stories made up by your mind involve your daily experiences, life achievements, positive vibes, and your own made-up negative insecurities and fears. Start developing positive thoughts if you want to leas a positive life.
When you tell yourself you are good enough, your future becomes yours. You have the upper hand in your own plan because you choose to believe. Once you start building your life with faith, life starts giving you more reasons to level up.
There are times when you want to turn around and just run away from all hardships. However, running away will make you start a new chapter of your life called misery. You will not settle down for less than you were aiming before. You will always feel incompetent and coward. Furthermore, you will lose confidence and may lose people you cherish along the way.
Actually, you can stop anytime, pause for a short period, and then resume your journey again. You may have reached your limits and need some time off. You have suffered enough with our a breather, so you decide to back off. It can be okay and harmless as long as you come up with a backup plan later. Also, a new approach for your life to rely on for the following chapters.
1. Choose to believe
You can choose to believe in yourself. It's not easy to convince your mind to be a strong believer especially when your life is not going as planned. Despite this, what you are planning may not be the only way out. Maybe failure is a motivation to shift to a new road.
Only a believer in oneself can see other ways out. You can do anything in life when you believe enough in you, your vision, and your capabilities.
2. You can fail
There is no permanent failure. Failing becomes a reality when you make it a life motto. It's your job to make sure it becomes temporary. Many of us have the problem of being labeled as a failure when it is actually not a big deal. When you fail, it means something is wrong whether it's your plan, attitude, thought, or something else. Don't forget, there may be other reasons for your failure won't be discovered until it's time.
What makes you a real success is encountering many failures. Every step walked on the road of failure is a building block of your successful life. So, embrace your failures and make sure you got the lesson if not now, then later.
3. Fight back
I can do it. I have my own way which can turn failure into success. I may not be able to see it, but I am a capable person. I know my limits, but it's time to discover what's beyond my sight. I am the only one who can uncover my own myths.
When you go to a faraway place and see an amazing surreal scene, you want to take that pebble shining there which is nothing but a piece of your current memories or evidence of you passing by once. This feeling is just the same when you reach a point of your life and feel you are doing well and if it goes this way a little more, you can reach the top you are aiming for. When you arrive at that station, please capture that moment and treasure it for a long time, it will be a source of your strength later.
Undoubtedly, we are not always going up through life, there must be a downhill waiting for us there to swallow our efforts if we decide not to fight back. You can decide to fight back and you will win for sure.
4. Challenge yourself
If you are not doing it, then who will? If you are not confident enough, then who can help you gain it? If you are not sure you can walk properly, then are you sure you can stop now and forever with no regrets?
Each step is heavy and burdensome at the beginning. If you give up every time you just start, then there will be a time you will be able to give up washing and bathing just because you are lazy and non-committed, and used to that for a long time.
Challenge yourself to do it and never let a moment of hesitation eat up your whole lifetime effort and achievement. Set challenges for yourself to overcome. Every time you succeed, you have won a war against your enemies. Those enemies of fears, lack of confidence, and negative thoughts won't vanish from your life without chasing them out.
You are the captain of this ship, so lead it wisely. Develop a positive attitude towards everything that happens in your life, then it will become a habit of developing positive thoughts.
