For Hard Days

Hard days are just as much about the mental game as they are about the situation.

“When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves./ — Viktor E. Frankl

Dwelling on the past and letting our minds be consumed by why we are in our circumstances will not get us any closer to where we want to be.

Accept the past and use i­t­ to transform your future.

Change starts with you.

“To be tested is good. The challenged life may be the best therapist.” — Gail Sheehy

See your situation, not as a failure, fear, or pain, but rather see i­t­ as a challenge to be a better human.

The way we describe and speak about our obstacles matters. ‘Being unlucky’ or ‘drawing the short straw’ etc. gives away power to your circumstances.

But deciding to take on our situation puts the ball back into our court.

“Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional.” — Roger Crawford

There’s always a way through.

We can’t take away hard days, but we can flip them on their head by letting them be catalysts for improvement and greatness.

Or at least we can not let the hard days completely wash out the good.

It’s okay to feel down and out sometimes, but never let hopelessness own you.

We might not have answers to our problems RIGHT NOW, but that doesn’t mean we never will.

Hard days are won in the mind first.

The rest is about letting go of the unnecessary things weighing us down, and focusing on immediate next actions to do better going forward and into the future.
