The quest to find answers for our ongoing dilemmas never ends. Everyone regardless of status, race, creed or social standing is thrown with something that is beyond their instant understanding to work around. I have laboured this point for years; that challenges are universal, but how we deal with them is what distinguishes us from the rest. The difference between successful people and those who are not is the ability to overcome challenges and working your way out of the gutter situations that seek to pull one down.
I believe that it’s crucial to embrace the right kind of thinking so that you have a healthy perspective concerning the circumstance. Learning to see right and see beyond can carry you through some of the toughest times in your life. Just when others expect you to drown in sorrow you can surprisingly beat the odds that are stacked up against you.
It’s easier said than done, but definitely worth a try. It’s important to find a resolve regarding that which you are faced with. Yes you may not have all the answers or may not even understand what is happening; but resolving to not be overcome by this storm is a good starting point.
Finding a resolve in simple terms is settling within yourself to be content about your situation and determining a course of action regarding what you are faced with. It may not be to obliterate the problem completely but at least help deal with it in a less stressful way. This would enable you to find peace in the midst of storm and help you to continue the journey.
In the middle of trying to grasp the activities all around, and accurately discerning the place you are in; it would be advisable to set your mind on the right things. Focus on the good and try to be balanced in how you perceive life, knowing that nothing just happens. Every problem serves a purpose, and that your great outcome is a culmination of the good, the bad and the ugly. I tell myself every so often that my current discomfort, is a part of the process and that my destiny requires me to go through it all in order to shine on the mountain top.
Finding such resolves are impossible if you are not feeding your faith. It’s therefore imperative to surround yourself with positivity, whether it be in the form of associations, what you read or what you expose yourself to in the form of television, conversations, social media and other influential platforms. If it is not adding life then discard it dear friend because life is too short to invest in that which destroys you and adds no value to your life. Glory lies in life and not in death. Starve your doubts, insecurities and fears about tomorrow. Settle to believe that the weeping only endures for a night and joy will surely come in the morning.
Breathe, relax and rest
