“Thinking will not overcome fear, but action will.”
– W Clement Stone
At some point, many of us end up at the lowest low in our life. Nothing seems to work. Nothing is enjoyable. There’s resistance everywhere. Just remember that there’s always a creative way to get back on path. And don’t ever forget – we are far more resilient than we think. When you’re rebuilding life from the ground up, every day is filled with chaos. So one of the key things to do for yourself is to create a “happiness” ritual. It will add predictability and stability into your life. Think of some of the things that you used to love and take joy in and start there. When you begin to remember them, start to use them to start you “ritual”. Be very aware and conscious of everything you do. You will find that there are certain things that could set you off of your path to regaining yourself and happiness. Try to replace those things with something new you might not have done before. You would be surprised to find that things you might not have been a custom to or tried before just might be one of the things missing in your life. There is no such thing as a perfect life and there will still be many obstacles along the way, but it’s how you react to them that will count. If you do not try to take control of your life, you will never be able to find that happiness you are longing for. I am writing this post now because I need to take control and be the person I want to be again. So lets do it together- Climb back up from rock bottom one step at a time with me.
Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even.
