When things don’t seem to be going to plan and you feel as though you’re taking more steps backward than you are forward, the negative committee rolls out the red carpet and along comes doubt, anxiety and plenty other notorious figures, ready to attend the pity party of the year. Oh and guess who’s headlining at this A-list event? The orchestra of epic frustration ft. rage. Shut the doors stat! Next, rewire your mindset.
REMEMBER WHY YOU STARTED
If your dreams are in cardiac arrest, resuscitate them. Remember why you started and keep that crystal-clear vision of the future you crave at the forefront of your mind. Let it drive your decisions – the seemingly insignificant ones that when compounded over time, allow you to rack up a tidy reel of accomplishments. The why is a renewable energy source, one that will continue to reignite your fire when all appears to be lost. Even when your string of unfortunate events has robbed you of all motivation, leaving nothing but a nasty cloud of doubt, nagging you to surrender your dreams – the why will rescue you.
NOBODY’S JOURNEY IS LINEAR
There is no such thing as a linear path to success, not in this lifetime. There are curves, bumps and ugly potholes that will ruthlessly test your patience and your persistence. It’s what you signed up to when you made the decision to pursue your dreams. It’s the terms and conditions of living a fulfilled life. And yes, it can be awfully disheartening when you fall unexpectedly, even more so when you bruise, but every battle scar represents a life lesson, an inch of wisdom, undying strength. So, instead of resenting the sometimes agonising journey, take pride in your collection of battle scars. It’s what makes your story one worth telling.
