Are you struggling to reach your goals?
Are you feeling stuck somewhere in the middle of your life or career?
You cannot figure out how to change things? How to improve your life beyond your current situation?
Sometimes life is putting us down, nothing seems to be working and we feel exhausted.
I would like to share a poem that kept me going through hard times.
Maybe it can work also for you.
“When Things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and debts are high,
And you want to smile but have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,
You might succeed with another blow,
Success is just failure turned inside out!
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit,
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.”
Stop to fight, accept the situation for what it is, surrender just for a moment, be gentle with yourself.
When you let go your control and allow your life to flow along the path of least resistance, you will gain new perspectives, new insights and more energy.
You will be ready to start again, maybe you realize that you need help to turn your life around and reach your goals.
Asking for help and understand why you need it is an action that requires a lot of courage and a demonstration that you are really committed to take a new step in your life.
Take a rest if you must, be gentle with yourself
ask for help if you need, but don’t quit!
