We all have experienced difficult times in life. What’s more, we as a whole overcome them. However, some show more signs of improvements than others. What is their secret? A large portion of it needs to do with the attitude. Moreover, we need to develop good mental habits to attain peaceful minds. Here are a few things to recall when life gets tough:
1. Finding the Root Cause
Misery happens when humans oppose the way things are in reality. In case, you can change something, make a strong move and change it. In case, you cannot change things, you have two options (a) acknowledge it and let it go (b) resign yourself by fixating on it. Opting one of these options will help you accept the things you can change and the things you cannot. Whatever the dilemmas you go through, balancing life will be the appropriate option to achieve a peaceful life.
2. Creating Positive Viewpoint
The fact is – we are our own worst enemy. Happiness is truly dependent on our viewpoint. If you think something is an issue, your thoughts and feelings will be negative. But if you believe it is something you can learn from, it is not an issue any longer.
3. Start Changing Yourself
Your external world is a reflection of your inner world. Do you know people whose lives are clamorous and stressful? Isn’t it to a great extent that they feel disorganised inside? We get a kick out of the chance to imagine that changing our conditions will transform us. In fact, it’s the other way round – we have to change ourselves first before our living conditions will change for us.
3. Everything is Learning
You should simply wipe out ‘disappointment’ from your vocabulary. All extraordinary people who have ever accomplished something have ‘failed’ again and again. It was Thomas Edison who said: “I did not fail at inventing the light bulb, I just found 99 different ways that did not work”. Take back your so-called ‘failures’ and try learning something new from them rather than feeling disappointed. Figure out how to improve next time.
4. Believe that Something Better is yet to Happen
Sometimes it is hard to accept if things don’t go the way you wanted. When you glance back at your life, you will have the capacity to perceive any reason why it was really something to be thankful for rather than something that did not work out. Maybe the job you failed to get would have influenced you to invest more time away from your family, however, the job you got allowed you to be more flexible. Simply have confidence that everything happens the way it should.
5. Cherish the Present Moment
This moment will never return. There is always something valuable in each minute. So don’t let it pass by. Before long it will simply be a memory one day. Even minutes that don’t appear to be pleasant can be looked upon as something that you may miss some time in the future. As the down-home tune by Trace Adkins says, “You are going to miss this. You are going to need this back. You are going to wish nowadays hadn’t passed by so quick. You may not know this now, but rather you are going to miss this for sure…”
Everything is temporary in this wicked life. Push yourself a little more to improve your life and attain a peaceful mind.
