Have you ever thought you need a breakthrough in your life? And how do you get it?
This is to all out there who feel that life has not been fair and they have been left bitter. You are not alone but you can bring change and only you have that capability. Change is essential in such a state. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from or your background. You need to change your thinking for that full breakthrough, it doesn’t just happen automatically.
I know the feeling; the loneliness and the silence which is deafening all around you and all you do is live in your own cocoon not wanting to let anyone in for fear of rejection and that you aren’t worthy of anything. You stay away from your loved ones and keep your distance. You feel broken, empty and lost.
Life can live you so bitter that you cannot even see opportunities lying ahead. You are a writer but with no words to write. Your hearts’ bleeding from one more bad events that have occurred in your life. This makes you scared and you are not sure of what life has in store for you. The pain is too much; more than you can bear and the scars always reminding you of the past. Sometimes all you want is that the earth to just open up and swallow you and all you do is cry. All you need is someone to hold you close and make you feel safe and assure you that it will be fine. It’s alright to cry; for it lessens the pain and your heart feel less heavy afterwards.
How best can you handle all those negative thoughts in your mind?
Just keep on walking and don’t look back. I know it might seem so far and at times you tend to wander whether walking is the best choice but what more will you lose? As long as you have hope, even the tiniest bit, that hope will keep you going. You will stumble and fall several times but you need to gather up some energy and courage and stand. Limp, jog, walk or even run if you have to but keep moving.
Change your thinking and attitude and believe that things will get better. As you walk, you will come across bridges and walls but always believe that the grass on that other side of the bridge is greener than where you are NOW. Remember that we have seasons; summer, winter, autumn and spring and summer will always come even after it snows. Seasons will change.
Some of us believe in God and praying and trusting in him keeps us moving. There are others that don’t believe that God exists but all that I can tell you is that there are forces beyond us and as long as you believe that things will get better and keep going all will be well. I can assure you that it will get better.
What can you do as a start?
- Plan for every single day the moment you wake up. Go into every new dawn believing that ahead of you is a beautiful start with opportunities to greater things to come. Set a target as to what it is you want to achieve for that day. Whenever a negative though crops up, brush it off
- Erase any negativity. Believe that you can go beyond the setbacks
- Don’t ever look back at your past mistakes and dwell on their negative consequences but look at what those mistakes have taught you. Focus on that and learn from them
- At the end of every day, note down whether you achieved the number 1 target above. If yes, that’s a big up for you and if not, point out what went wrong or what you can do different to achieve it.
Turn that pain into victory. Just practice the above every single day and believe that it’s impacting positively on you.
