The hardest days will be where you get the best lessons. So keep this in mind when you are having a bad day.
1. No one promised that life would be perfect
“If you are looking for perfection, you will never be satisfied” – Leo Tolstoi
Do not condition your happiness to satisfy every expectation that you created. It is good to be ambitious, but you will never be perfect
If you hope to be, your life will be plagued with disappointments.
2. Success does not happen overnight
“The trees that take time to grow have the best fruit” – Molière
Do not fool yourself by thinking that success will come to you quickly. It is not easy to be patient but let me tell you something: everything that is worth it takes time (often, a lot). If you get frustrated, remember why your goal is important and why you do what you do.
3. There is a lesson in every fight
“And once the storm has passed, you will not remember how you went through it, how you managed to survive, you will not be safe even if the storm has really ended. be the same person who entered That’s what this storm is about “- Haruki Murakami
Do not complain about how terrible your life is. It is tempting to do so, but bitterness will not make you feel better.
Look for solutions to change what you do not like and not reasons to get there. Find everything that invites you to advance your problem. Do not drown in it. If you learn the lessons now, you will know what changes to make in the future so that they do not happen again.
4. Without difficult times you would not appreciate the good ones
“Strength is born from winning When things are ugly and you still decide not to give up and move on, that’s strength” – Arnold Schwarzenegger
Do not be sad if you lose. On the contrary, how are you going to learn to be better? If you look at failure as part of learning, it will allow you to maintain a positive attitude to pursue your goals as long as necessary.
5. It’s okay to cry sometimes
“Do not blame yourself for crying, without this emotion, we would simply be robots” – Elizabeth Gilber
Crying is not a sign of weakness. It is a way to vent tensions and feelings of discomfort. If you let them accumulate they will end up doing you even more damage. It is normal that sometimes you need to vent, do not be ashamed of it.
6. Worrying about everything is not right
“Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its problems, but it empties today of its strength” – Corrie Ten Boom
If you forget things that you cannot control, you will have the ability to concentrate on those that you can. And also, is it good for something positive to worry about things that you cannot control?
7. Nobody’s life is as colorful as it seems
“How much time would you save if you stopped looking at what your neighbor says, does or thinks and you will look at what you do, say and think?” – Marco Aurelio
Do not compare your life with what another person reflects. Since everything your eyes see is not true. When you are comparing yourself think that what you observe is a high definition version of their lives. In addition, and apart from all this, you do not need to compare yourself with anyone.
8. It takes courage to ask for help
“The most persistent and urgent question in life is: What are you doing for others?” – Martin Luther King Jr.
No one would have arrived where they arrived if they had not asked for help. That’s how it is. The strength of a man also resides in his vulnerability. So do not hesitate to ask for help because you will never be a burden.
9. You deserve love and happiness
“People tend to be almost as happy as they set out to be” – Abraham Lincoln
Think of something you are grateful for right now. It could be this morning’s cup of tea, the puppy waiting for you at home when you get home from work, or that pair of healthy eyes that allow you to read this article.
It’s so easy to forget about these little things when we have a bad mood
. I challenge you to break this trend! The next time you’re down, think of something that makes you happy. Repeat that behavior until it becomes a habit. Your negative thoughts will have no effect on you if you stop listening to them.
