Inner strength is something we all have but unfortunately your brain does not comprehend the situation because you’re feeling that life has turned against you. It’s a terrible feeling when your life seems to be falling apart and you’re buried deep in the wreckage of the life you had mapped out for yourself. That gut wrenching feeling you have when your bank account is in the red and you can get no more help from the manager, with no sign of the promising income you’re owed and no opportunities on the horizon. That terrible feeling you have when someone you trusted and said would guide you through the dark days betrays you and breaks your spirit. Or when you’re emotionally drained to the point you can’t get yourself out of bed in the morning. It’s not OK when you’re engulfed in failure or shame or a grief like you’ve never known before.
Inner strength is something you use when you’re fighting what’s happening around you today and you are still thinking of yesterday’s problems, you can resourcefully fight the battles of just one day. It’s only when you add yesterday, today and tomorrow, that life gets overwhelmingly extremely intense and complicated. You must try to accept that it’s not just the experience of today that is holding you back,
that is depressing you and driving you mad but the fear and dread of what tomorrow might bring, but probably won’t. This is when you must concentrate on today finding the solution right now then move on.
Your inner strength will force you to look seriously at the goals you have set yourself. Please don’t set too higher targets that look far too big and will frighten you off completely. Your goals need to excite you, making you want to reach them so, break them down into manageable, achievable, small bite-sized pieces that will help you move forward with them.
Base your goals on what brings meaning into your life, not just what you think you “should” do, working on them will, help you flow easier into each new day.
