Whenever a tragedy strikes are natural response is to tell the person involved to ‘stay strong’. If you have been on the receiving end of this saying then you are aware that it is much easier said than done. It is pretty tough to overcome a tragedy let alone staying strong during the process.
With that said, this post is going to be dedicated to anybody who is currently going through a hard time right now and is on the verge of losing their vision of their hopes and dreams. Before I begin I just want to say that this is completely normal, so you shouldn’t beat yourself up over it. When we are faced with a tragedy or some unfortunate circumstances we are taken so back that the last thing on our minds is our dreams and goals. Heck, if the tragedy is really bad then most of us even have trouble performing the normal day to day tasks such as dressing ourselves and eating so it is completely understood. No need to make yourself feel worst about it. It’s part of human nature to be really set back by tragedy.
With that said however, this post is going to inform you not only about how to stay strong during the process but also how you can DOUBLE your chances of succeeding even though you are going through a travesty.
How To Stay Strong
I feel as if I have already touched upon this topic in a previous article which can be found here: How To Overcome The Death Of A Loved One, but to give you the brief run down, say for instance you have lost a loved one, well instead of sitting around all day and weeping, you have to go out there and become successful not only for yourself, but for your loved one as well. Without a doubt, your loved one had a lot of dreams that they didn’t get the chance to live out, so you have to accomplish your dreams to give them a taste of how it feels since after someone close passes they live through you. They are living in your heart so once you accomplish your dreams they are also accomplishing theirs. Hence, the key is to not spend time weeping, instead let this inspire you to make both yours and your loved ones dreams come true. I go into depth about this topic in the article I just mentioned above. So you might want to check that out.
How To Use The Tragedy In Your Life To Double Your Chances of Success
Whether your circumstances involve you losing a loved one, things not going your way, being on welfare, working your ass off just to make ends meet, or resorting to prostitution to make ends meet. Each and everyone of these circumstances along with countless others can be used to double your chances of succeeding in life. You might not be able to see it now, but hopefully it will become obvious by the end of this article.
Whatever your circumstances may be I just want to make one thing clear, you can either become paralyzed and start to feel sorry for yourself or you can utilize the wrong hands you were dealt by life as MOTIVATION. You may feel like you have hit rock bottom, but think of it like this, the only way to go now is UP. I sincerely believe that the people who are at the lowest point of their lives have the best chance of becoming successful. Why? Because if they learn not to get all down, they can use the tragedy’s as fuel which alone will take them along way.
Another MAIN reason is they have nothing to lose. If you are a sports fan then you have probably noticed that the teams who are out of the playoff list usually end up beating the ones in the playoff race. Well the reason for this is they simply play as if they have nothing to lose and this is true, since they aren’t making the playoffs. Another example, is the countless stories of people who have gone from rags to riches. Some have even gone from being homeless to a BILLIONAIRE. Why is this the case? Well they had already hit rock bottom so they just lived as if they had nothing to lose. They had no fear because they were already down on their luck and had already lost everything.
A cardinal rule that has been proven to be correct endless times is the person who has nothing to lose almost always ends up on top. Hence, you shall use the unfortunate circumstances in your life as springs which will launch you off in the sky and towards success. Act as if you have nothing to lose and watch how fast your luck changes.
