In anything you endeavor to do life will challenge you! It’s going to throw things at you. Life is going to hit you square between the eyes. It’s going to hit you in your heart. It’s going to make you cry. What I have learned in my own personal life is that being discouraged is a total and colossal waste of time!!!
“My own personal history” has taught me that anytime I allow things in my life to discourage me and affect me mentally in a negative way….EVERYTHING STOPS & nothing happens in my life!!! I know life can be hard, things go wrong in people’s lives every day!! If you allow them to- the negative happenings in your life will bully you!
The things that you go through in life can become a bully just like the bullies in grade school! Negative happenings, if you let them, will cause you to want to give up on your dreams, your goals & aspirations that you set for yourself & the ones you love!! We have learned by experience that the only way to defeat a bully is to STAND UP to ‘em! We all know at least one someone who had to deal with bullies and how that whole scenario played out according to how the one “being bullied” responded to them.
The outcome of the person who didn’t stand up and fight back usually ended up how??? It’s the same with life if you don’t STAND UP to it and face it head on!! It’s so much easier to give up, to quit and to just say, I can’t do this! Life can seemingly be saying to you that you aren’t supposed to do anything with your life and that you should just pack it up and go home!!
I have faced some REAL hard times and some repetitive difficulties in my life but when it was all said and done I could not allow the things that I went through to paralyze me “mentally and emotionally” but I had to fight back or I would not be here today!
So what can you do??
#1. Follow someone or several someone's on social media who overcame hard or seemingly impossible circumstances to help you overcome your negative thoughts and emotions so you can regain proper perspective.
#2. Challenge the challenges that challenge you, develop your strategy and WIN!!!
#3. No matter what happens to set you back-DON’T GIVE UP!!!
Now I'd like to hear from you. What do you do when life tries to bully you and make you give up?
