There are times in life when everything comes crashing down around you.  But there is one thing inside you that can maintain a steady course, and that’s your attitude. In fact, this is when you need to stay positive, no matter what.

It may sound easier said than done, but it’s critical to stay positive – even when it feels like everything is falling apart.  The ability to stay positive during difficult times can not only help you find a solution for your difficulty but help you bounce back better than you ever have before.

Use these 3 tips to stay positive when you feel like giving up:

1 – Focus on your end goal

You’ve got to remember where you’re going if you want to get there.   Your past, no matter how difficult, has only created life up to now.  Remember your end goal and re-focus to bring clarity back to your vision.

Even if you’ve found yourself in a hole you can dig your way out no matter how deep. But first, you’ve got to make the decision to pick up your shovel and dig. Your potential is far beyond where you are right now. Write down a few small steps you can take action on this week, it will bring you closer to where you want to be (essentially making you feel better).

2 – Affirm gratitude

When life gives you a losing hand, remember how wonderful it is to still be sitting at the card table.  There is always, always, always something to be grateful for, even if it’s the fact that you’re breathing and reading this.

When you express what you’re grateful for, the things you’re grateful for will grow.  Your thankful attitude is responding to life and bringing more of what you want. Only a gracious, grateful heart will attract more and even better opportunities.

3 – “Refrain and release” your negative energy

Negative energy can be tough to tame when it’s hitting you full force.  Irritability can occur as you go through the venting process, and sometimes you feel like projecting negativity onto others.  It’s important to remember that they probably didn’t cause your situation. Even if they did, forgiveness is an important lesson to learn in life.  Refrain from spreading negative energy around you and try to help maintain positivity, even if it’s outside your own experience.

Inspiration to your Inbox

Don’t crop-dust people with your dilemma when you’re working through it either.  Remember that everyone is fighting some kind of battle, and they may have a hard time being able to handle the load.  There will be people to support you in your process, but it’s important to ask for that support first. It’ also important to remember that when an issues arises, consult your very best therapist – your inner voice – your intuition. Here you can vent and explore options that will lead to a solution.

  1. Thank you for your kind words. I'm not a Buddhist but embrace many of it's tenents. I'm grateful that I was shown how to do this prior to becoming ill.

    yes it keeps mind peaceful.. i think i know something about meditation because am a Buddhist, that's y i said to do meditation,,, have a healthy life mam !!

  3. I lost 85% of my pancreas to correct hypoglycemia and it failed. I'm in pain, on IV nutrition and was just diagnosed with Lyme. It's not easy but i get up everyday and pursue my passions of art and music. I listen to books on tape. It took a while but I'm grateful to have a chance to live a quieter more introspective life. What I lost physically, I gained emotionally. As you mentioned, people have problems of their own so I see an awesome spiritually based counselor regularly. Working through grief is easier if you can speak freely with no judgement. I've learned that I'm stronger than I thought and life is worth fighting for.
