Sometimes we become are our own enemy. Life often brings us face to face with unfortunate events or circumstances that leave us speechless. How many times did we fell into existential crisis and felt highly discouraged? Many of us had big dreams and hopes for future but all crushed in few seconds and suddenly we struggled to find meaning in life.
Who knew rejection could be that dangerous?
Our Mind- A Mental Prison
We all go through this phase; some give up halfway before they even start while some try a few times and quit. The important fact to know and understand is that life doesn’t happen within our comfort zone. So if anything happens outside that solace; we instantly rush towards our self-created safety shell, which is more of a mental prison. We stop seeing our goals as something achievable because it requires a lot of strength, going out of the way and rising above the mediocre.
Yes, we get stuck at some point in our life. It doesn’t matter if you are a student who is not getting good grades or a person stressing to find a job, a parent struggling with their children, or a spouse with pressure and financial tension. Often people just want a solution to a particular situation. They run from their problems and keep all challenges under the rug. In order to overcome a weakness or a difficult situation, we must take risks.
It’s a gamble; we might face huge failure in life or achieve tremendous success. Who knows? So what’s stopping us from moving forward?
We absorb an effect of a negative situation and create a particular mindset. This keeps us from getting inspiration because we are too afraid to try again.
This takes us to the second most important thing.
The Secret to Staying Motivated
As long as you don’t give up, you will get through anything. For starters, if you have trouble finding your path and you are trapped under black clouds of negative emotions, then just hear me out.
Nobody will help you, but yourself.
With time, self-help tends to create a positive atmosphere for yourself. You will not get the ‘required’ encouragement from any life coach, no matter how convincing his words might seem. At the end of the day, you will be fighting some battles alone. So why not take control of your own life and be ‘intrinsically motivated’ rather than asking for help every time. You will be on a journey of self-improvement if you ‘chase down obscure leads’ to know how much you can gain by taking that one step. There is no time for calculated risks but listening to your gut and taking the right step. Get out of your head because that place is jeopardizing with your strength to live.
You will become better, you will find your ideal peace and ultimately you will accomplish your goals (if you first set them). All you need to have is a leap of faith, and believe me, you will eventually conquer every obstacle and win at life!
