Never forget that you are not alone. God never gives you more than you can bear. In fact, he prepares you for something wonderful.
Here are some things to consider if you are struggling with difficulties.
1. The first step is never easy
The beginnings towards better things, more beautiful chapters in your life, and more special stories are always the most difficult, but these difficult moments open the way to happiness. No matter how much you struggle, be strong and trust yourself. Persist, and your efforts will be rewarded at the end.
2. Good things come very rarely, and very seldom without an effort on your part
Life is not easy, and yet it is worth living. If you expect it to always be easy, you will be disappointed for years. Learn to align your efforts with your goals and then start each day by moving forward, evolving, growing and becoming a better person; fight more and wiser than you have fought so far.
3. You will always have less control than you desire
The only thing you can always control in life is how you react to things that get out of control – and yes, there are many things that you can’t control. The better you adapt your thinking to this reality, the easier it will be for you to get over obstacles by accepting them completely and continuing your journey.
4. You can’t avoid problems in life… ever
Risk is a part of life. And so is happiness. Stop worrying about your mistakes and failures, stop worrying about tomorrow, stop worrying about what you can’t control. Give yourself the opportunity to be one of the lucky people who have survived so far and will continue to do so.
5. Your greatest problems are often in your head
The main cause of your unhappiness is never your current situation, but your thoughts about it. Happiness and success usually depend on the way you think and the way you act based on your thoughts.
6. Long-term happiness cannot be bought… it must be earned
Whatever you do, don’t forget that the main purpose of life is to be happy. Enjoy every moment, smile as often as possible, surround yourself with people who have a good soul, have fun, follow your dreams, live your life to the fullest. Do what it takes so that one day, many months (or maybe even years) from now you can look back on your life, get inspired and smile wholeheartedly.
