I like this saying..

“An entire sea of water can’t sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship”.

Similarly, the negativity of the world can’t put us down unless we allow it to get inside us.

So… How we could have a new direction, purpose and meaning even when things are not moving in the right direction?{Note:You may like to watch this short video we made for you and continue reading..}

By thinking in a little unconventional manner, it would be “still” possible to bring in some positivism even when things are not moving in the right direction also.

#Start by thinking what we are already blessed with……..What we have, Yes!, Be Grateful for what we have…That is where it should start, If we were to really introspect meaningfully!

#Believe in the power to “adjust” and also believe in “yourself” more passionately:- …Still remember the day I started believing a lot more in my capabilities to adjust, …And that made a big difference! Back then , I even wrote this in my scrap book. “My deep faith in me is the only truth which will allow me to survive & I will come out of this despite people unknowingly putting me down through dint of my perseverance and hard work” .Once I wrote this and started reading this every morning before I set out for my work I had a lot of inner confidence.Reminded myself every day of the adage .”You are stronger than you think.” And I did it repeatedly as if to reassure me.”In life there are certain things,we might never really get over, Some times the best we could do is just “get through “ But that’s okay..There is still a lot of beauty to find on the other side”!

# Develop a strong inner conviction : One will be able to generate deep faith and transform it into confidence resulting in experiencing peace in difficult situations and “Truly” so by all means!

#Develop better resilience to adjust to the adversities..

Don’t always expect everything to be great. Although the downs are sometimes hard to face, they still have a way of molding us!.”Keep your spirit pure,nothing on earth is worth your soul”

#Learn to cope up with the pressure of not being able to make it

Learn to find happiness through the minor things that we generally forget.Making small steps at a time in order to make it meaningful for the future to be brighter is like playing a “game”. It is all about finding strength and happiness even when surmounted by difficulties and going ahead with optimism.

#We might win some as much as we are bound to lose some other!

Setting stretch goal is good but then it shouldn’t be such that it corrodes our emotional strength.One should not bother too much about the end result as long as one has made sure that he/she has done everything possible.

#Most Important: “The” ability to remain humble at all points of time is one of the greatest assets.

As much as we need to be aware of our strengths we need to acknowledge our weaknesses as well. Awareness of our weaknesses should keep us so humble that we should accept it in the first place, learn from it and work hard to align it positively;Gather enough strength to turn those into our greatest assets.

Finally friends,Take courage from what we have to go through in life and use the same to enhance life and career.That reminds me of my favorite quote…”Strength does not come from winning.Your struggles develop your strengths”.When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is the “strength” developed which would help you in the long run.A lot of strength comes from the indomitable will power god has given us and finding strength through every “such struggles” in life is what makes it meaningful for us to carry on…..
