How to Keep Going On Despite Difficulties

How to Keep Going On Despite Difficulties

There are times when we find ourselves in rather sticky situations whether we like them or not. Sadly the only thing that pops into our head is, “Is it over yet?” How are we supposed to deal with this type of distaste? Now, life is meant to be enjoyed but then again, we can’t really be expected to enjoy every single step of the way. Life has ups and downs. Everyone looks up to the ups, but not a lot of people actually talk about dealing with the downs.

What do you do when you are at a distaste with your current situation? Hopefully these following tips would help you cope:

1. Look at Problems from a “Bird’s Eye View”
Sometimes the cause of our anxiety isn’t the actual problem itself. Sometimes the cause of our anxiety is how close we are towards the problem. The smaller our vision, the more cluttered things seem. Learn to zoom out and look at things from a more objective point of view. It’s normal to feel a certain emotion with every type of situation but do not let that emotion cloud your actual view of the situation.

2. When Tired, Take a Rest, But Don’t Give Up
Instead of learning how to quit, learn how to rest. Rest is vital in development and recuperation of strength. If you are drained, learn how to rest instead of just giving up. Let’s face it, everyone gets tired. This is a trait most CEOs know how to carry out really well. Most successful CEOs know when to rest. Instead of letting worry and doubt cloud your head, learn how to rest. Besides, worry and doubt are very counter-productive.

3. Always Keep Yourself Motivated
The root of motivation actually comes from a simple line, “I can do this”. And sometimes that’s all it takes. All those motivational speeches are helpful but at the end of the day, your biggest motivation should be yourself. Allow yourself to be motivated by others but do not rely on them as a source of motivation. Instead, rely on yourself to keep yourself motivated no matter what happens.

4. Every Day You Give Your Best is a Win
Winning by default is still winning. Imagine this, you’re in a competition with some of the best contestants around, the competition gets tiring and one by one your competition starts to quit, isn’t that a sign to keep going? A recent study has shown that intelligence is not always the measure of success, it’s grit. Grit is the trait of champions. Being able to get up after every fall knowing how small that bump would be in the whole picture, now that’s a trait of a true champion.
