Inspirational Thoughts on Difficult Times

Lion sitting in tall grass, Courage, Dealing with Difficult Times

The difficult times seem to come out of no where. They cause chaos and turbulence where there was comfort and safety. The natural reaction to the onslaught of all the difficulties is to bunker down. This might make us immobile and inflexible that is exactly the opposite of what is expected. The faith and trust in your abilities and divine providence help us in dealing with all the difficulties that the life can throw on us.

One thing to remember is to that no matter how tough the circumstances they will change. All things will eventually change and if we keep a positive attitude they will often change for better and provide us the opportunity to become better due to the challenges.

If we can keep just one foot after another and keep moving towards a solution then life will start getting better and better-

“Sometimes you don't need a goal in life, you don't need to know the big picture. you just need to know what you're going to do next!” ― Sophie Kinsella

Difficult times force our attention to the problem but the way out of the difficult times lies not in the problem but in the solution. It is a matter of perspective change from the problem to the solution that is the key. One has to constantly keep the attention focused on the solutions and options to overcome the problem and then get busy following the solutions. This effort towards the solution and a firm understanding that we can’t worry about something that we can’t change would definitely help overcome all odds.

“We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand.” ― Randy Pausch

Slowly with the time the solutions starts to emerge and there is a tiny little light at the end of the tunnel. Then there is more light, and the light just grows as we walk towards it. This can become a self reinforcing cycle and difficult times become an opportunity to find out what type of stuff we are made of…

“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” ― Winston S. Churchill
