We all go through a phase when all we ever think about is giving up on our hopes and dreams just because things aren’t taking the route we had primarily envisioned they would. It’s challenging to stay positive when things don’t go our way but the reality is, there are plenty of ways to kill a cat… or a dog.. or anything really so if one method does not work, figure out your next attempt.
First and foremost, the most vital thing you need to do is to believe that you will get where you want to be eventually. It does not matter how many years it will take but if you desperately want something and value it that much you will gracefully tackle all the obstacles that may come your way.
Also, do not be hard on yourself – avoid having extreme expectations of yourself because you might just suffer from minor depression when you realize that things aren’t as easy as they seem. Setbacks happen but they cannot stop you from being great if you are determined and know what you deserve. Yes, there will come a point where you will question the need for you to go on and question whether it is worth it or not. The mere fact that you started it means it had a trinket of worth in your life.
Drown yourself in anything that will keep you motivated, whether it’s motivational quotes, books or YouTube videos perhaps. If seeing a picture of your deceased family member reminds you how important it is for you to not give up, then keep that picture close-by and where it will be visible whenever the thought of throwing the towel crawls in your mind.
Usually things get worse before they get better therefore whenever you feel as though you are overwhelmed with challenging situations, keep in mind that it’s about to get a whole lot better. You will be afraid that setbacks will last forever and that there is no way of getting out of them but it’ll pass because well life goes on. Things will turn out great, just have a little faith.
