If we can just get stronger, more resilient, and persistent during the darkest hour there is nothing we cannot accomplish.
I have always found it very moving and inspiring when I contemplate, it is darkest outside just before dawn. What an amazing metaphor for our life. How many times has your life seemed so bleak only to transform into a courageous moment?
I want to invite you to reflect and think about your past. Recall a time when you were challenged and you may have felt it was impossible to go on. Please reflect on the time period after you overcame the impossible….. What a miracle.
I want to encourage you to look out for those moments big or small when you feel you cannot do anymore. Whether you are building a business, eating healthy, starting an exercise routine, learning a new language, or working to complete a project. Whenever you feel like you cannot finish or it has become too hard, this is the time practice being faithful. Use everything in your toolbox to remain present in the struggle and push ahead. Just get past that feeling of impossible to the other side of possible. If you do this frequently enough you will build an amazing muscle of coping and resilience. Miracles are possible when you learn to master your mind during those moments when you believe something is impossible.
So moving forward follow the following three steps for your ultimate success;
- Recognize when your mind is labeling a situation as impossible.
- Breath. Begin to do whatever it takes to stay in the struggle and overcome. Use affirmations. Keep repeating, “I can do this.” Do not abandon ship keep moving forward.
- Persevere. Then repeat again as necessary.
If you commit to doing this anytime life gets challenging you will build character, strength, and resilience. You will succeed at anything you put your mind to doing. I am rooting for you! Let me know if this was helpful. Karla
