Seven Ways to Thrive Through Difficult Times in Life

Practice compassion

When a friend is going through a difficult patch, you would likely tell them that they are doing the best they can, that they should give themselves a break, that they can get up again.

Now tell that to yourself if you feel overwhelmed on your journey to healing. You may get exhausted sometimes. It's okay, take a deep breath, take some rest, but don't lose the momentum. Do small things that uplift you. You can move forward through difficult times.

Before jumping to a conclusion, think about the long-term consequences of your decision.

We may respect those able to fling themselves into a hard problem and make a quick choice with seemingly little thought, but making a meaningful decision needs to be done with care for the long-term effects.

Understand Decision Fatigue

It’s important to be aware of what state of mind you’re in before tackling a hard choice.

Decision fatigue happens when the mental energy required to weigh the tradeoffs of our decision becomes too much for us to handle. 

Defining breakthroughs

Breakthroughs are those moments in time when the impossible becomes possible.

If anyone wants to thrive in any area of their life, they have to reach a point of breakthrough where they will not settle for anything less than extraordinary in that area.

Your strategies

These are the shortcuts that help people get more done in less time. 

Don't rely on luck, build your strategy. Luck is what you do for a day or a week, strategies are what make it consistently happen for decades. 

Your story

We all have stories, those narratives we tell ourselves about why we can or cannot do or achieve something in our lives. Whether we believe we can or can’t, we’re usually right, because our expectation controls our focus, perceptions, and the way in which we feel and act.

Be the creator of your life
  1. Turn uncertainty into action: If you want to progress, allow yourself to feel uncertainty.
  2. Focus on your vision and on things that you can control.
  3. Decide and commit: Take the first step, make that decision and stick to it.
  4. Resolve to change: It means it is done, it is in you and there is no longer any internal battle.
  5. Give back: Remember, the secret to living is giving.
