There are days when you find it hard being human when faced with many battles of everyday living. We are hard on ourselves when we are met with setbacks, failures and weaknesses or even neglecting our mental, physical and emotional needs. I remember my experience with setbacks and how my past problem of poor credit made it difficult for me to have financial freedom as well as living the American Dream. Over time I started to suffer from depression and anxiety all because I was fearful and ashamed to tell my truth, to talk about the struggles that prevented me from being happy. I avoided the process to repair because I believed more in my limitations than my own abilities. I felt unmotivated and powerless, like many others who avoided embracing their struggles.
My situation began to turn around the day I embraced my struggles through empowering myself. I realized the same energy that I was putting into not doing, I refocused with a positive mindset and took many actions for self-improvement. It worked! I have financial freedom and living the American dream. You can also empower yourself amid your struggles. This starts with shifting your mindset.
Anything that you do in life requires you to be prepared. When you are talking about change, it is a process that requires a commitment to altering what is no longer serving you presently. Now that you are determined, you can identify your needs, but you must be honest with yourself. This is not an area you want to self-sabotage as this will only create setbacks where progress will be significantly slowed. You want to constantly be moving forward.
Decide on what is the best course of action you need to take to alleviate the struggles in your life. Be active in your change to produce results. Turn towards some resources that are available to assist you. Sometimes you may need reinforcement to keep your ground. Maintain a positive attitude by reminding yourself that you do matter, and you have the power to change your circumstances. Daily connect with something that keeps you motivated and empowered. You will be surprised how much one can accomplish with an optimistic outlook regardless of what other people think about your situation or how they see you.
Having a hopeful view is respecting your struggle when you can embrace it rather than ignoring that it exists. When you acknowledge how you feel and how you are impacted by your circumstances is the moment you can begin to heal. If you are struggling, you have the final say and not your struggle. Because you have the ability to change your situation. Become empowered when facing conflict so you can make a difference in your life.
