Keeping the faith, having hope is what halts fear in its tracks, while infinitely brightening up your life. Hope is something that we all have within us, at times lying dormant, and when times get tough, is when we need to activate it. Having hope is what accelerates focus, and once doing so is when things will get better, as it’s the promise of hope that turns things around. At times, it becomes possible to lose sight of hope as it can waver, so we need ways to recognize its symptoms and then get it back. We can only sustain pain for so long until things get better. With hope, anything becomes possible.
9. Acknowledge All Your Successes
Always congratulate yourself whenever you succeed, this regardless of how small the accomplishment, as what it does is generates your motivation while helping you build on them. So dwell on your past achievements and give yourself credit. Reflect back on your life and list all of the wins, which has made you who you are today.
Spend a few minutes daily to read this list, acknowledge all your positive traits, and allow them to penetrate your consciousness. Once you accomplish what you set out to achieve, then you can propel this success to make a difference in the world, this to yourself and the lives of others.
8. Focus On All Your Strengths
Know and focus on all your strengths instead of your weaknesses. Always concentrate on those areas where you’ve proven yourself in the past. Never ignore these weaknesses however, and continue to improve on them.
During this process always keep your focus, as what a lack of focus does is weakens your confidence, creativity, enthusiasm, and overall performance. You’re also not getting any better. So your attention should be on focusing to improve your strengths, while working around your weaknesses by not ignoring them.
7. Passages Of Time
If something bad happens to you, never panic, blame yourself, or others, this because “this too will pass.” You’ll eventually reflect on it as a stepping stone to where you want to be. Never lose hope, while believing that something good is about to happen.
That determination, dedication, and hard work is what leads to success. Know that everything that happens passes with time and for a reason. Know that you’re going to get past it, and get better as a result.
