2 Essential Things To Do Every Day While You’re Pushing Through Challenging Times

Sometimesit'sthe.jpg“Sometimes it’s the most challenging path that leads you to the most beautiful destination.”

Wouldn’t you say that this year has been filled with a lot of challenges? And, I am not just talking about regular everyday challenges, I am talking about those big challenges that can be really, really hard to work through. It seems like every time I work through one thing, something else comes up and then something else. Has it been the same for you?

Well, if you can relate, you will probably appreciate being reminded of two very important things I recently reminded myself of:

(1) There is relief in sight…thank goodness. And, there are so many more good things waiting for you on the other side of whatever it is you’re working through. Although it may get challenging at times, you’re learning even more about who you really are and what you’re truly capable of.

Things don’t just happen to us. They also happen for us so that we can learn, grow, and be strengthened while life rearranges perfectly to give us everything we truly need. 

And, the second thing to remember is that …

(2) You don’t have to wait to reach the proverbial “finish line” before you start feeling really good. Even though it may not always seem possible, you’re actually meant to feel centered and maintain your peace of mind no matter what is going on or what you’re still working through. It’s like one of my favorite quotes explains …

How You Trust The Journey Even When Things Get Tough

Don'tletwhathappens.jpgHave you ever been working for awhile (maybe even for years) to get something you really wanted? Maybe there was something you were trying to accomplish or maybe you realized certain things needed to improve in your life?

Do you know what has always been interesting to me about these times when we’ve been doing our best to get the pieces to fall into place?

When things finally do fall into place … there will be something else. There are always more possibilities and even more things we are going to want, regardless of what we accomplish.

After you finally get the dream job, then it’s going to be about getting a promotion or the next job.

After you find the right person, then it’s going to be about creating a healthy relationship with that person.

After you finish writing the book and get it published, then it’s going to be about the next book.

There will always be something else. [Read more...]

5 Important Things To Remember When Any Challenges Come Your Way

Somanymore.jpg
Have you ever come across the quote by Paulo Coelho?

“Life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once.”

I feel like that quote totally applies to life right now, especially the part about there being so much happening all at once. It seems like challenge after challenge keeps popping up and there are so many things to handle and deal with.

Do you agree? Have you also had a lot going on lately?

Sometimes it just helps to know that you’re not the only one working through things and to also be reminded that everything will work out like you need it. It actually brings to mind another one of my favorite quotes …

“Difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations.”

Yes, things can be really challenging and push us harder than we may think is necessary. But, what I have finally realized, and what makes these times so much easier to walk through, is the understanding that they do happen for a reason. In one way or another there is always something that comes out of them that we need (even if it doesn’t feel like it or we have no idea what that could possibly be).

So, one of the best things we can do while we are walking through these times is remind ourselves of that Truth, recenter when necessary by settling into our Extraordinary Side, and keep taking steps in the direction that feels most right.

We’ve got to make sure we keep moving forward every single day and not let everything that is going on weigh us down or make us feel stuck because we think we can’t handle it all.

All the things we want for our life are on the other side of all the things we are working through. And, as one of my favorite quotes of all time reminds us … “So many more good things are coming down the road … just keep walking”.

Reassurance Always Come When You’re Listening

Also, haven’t you noticed that as we are working through these times, we get little reminders and reassurance to trust the way things are unfolding? Maybe someone will say something reassuring or maybe we will read something or come across a profound quote. 

I used to overlook and dismiss many of the reassurances that were coming my way. I thought they were just “feel good” sentiments and that I couldn’t really count on what they promised. There were even times that I thought it would be crazy to believe in any reassurances because very little seemed to be working out or falling into place. But, you live and learn. And, now I realize that my lack of complete belief was actually what was working against me the most.

It’s not crazy to believe in the messages and reassurances that come our way … It’s crazy not to believe.

The reassurances are coming for a reason. They are meant to point us in the direction of our inner voice. It’s why they catch our attention and why the messages resonate. We are meant to listen, let them strengthen our belief even more and provide us with some additional inspiration to keep going. They are our True North.

Everythingyouneed.025Do you want to know something that finally dawned on me? It’s okay to not know. It’s okay to not know exactly “how” something is going to happen or “how” things will actually come together… and still completely believe everything will work out.

For so many years, I thought it was enough if I just took steps in the right direction and “hoped for the best”.

And, you hear people say things like this all the time …

“I don’t know if it will work out, but I am trying and hoping for the best.” “Only time will tell, but I am giving it everything I have and staying positive.”

That used to be the way I thought about things too.
