Moving on in life is never easy as it is always hard to find the motivation and courage to move on in life. We always want to grow and progress and nobody likes to stay at the same place as the years pass by.
All of us at some point come at a junction of life where everything seems to swiftly pass by while we are standing still and become stagnant. Our existence itself becomes meaningless as we desperately try to find purpose in life something to cling to something to move forward. We are continuously in search of a miracle that can set our lives straight and guide us towards the path to a better tomorrow. The state of being stuck somewhere is similar to the stones that lay at the bottom of a river or ocean staying there as they have been while the huge currents of water pass over.
Such overwhelming feelings tend to break us and we befriend depression and pessimism. Although there are a lot of problems that stall your motion in life there are only a handful of solutions. Here are a few things that can help you move forward in life:
1. Ignoring Rejection
Rejection assaults our very being and existence. Rejection and abandonment can destroy a person’s self-esteem and shatter their personality. Rejection can leave scars and drains our self-confidence.
“You are not good enough”
“You are not up to the standards”
All of us face rejection at some point in life and worry over it as the opportunities pass by. If you want to move forward you need to filter out all of the rejection from your life. Keep working and keep failing until you achieve what you desire. If you tend to worry over every rejection in life you will be depressed and frustrated as it destroys all you have ever accomplished.
Accept yourself and let everything go. Move with the flow and never stop for anything. If you can forget about the rejection and reach you goal the people who reject you today will admire you tomorrow!
2. Being patient
Patience is one of the key qualities that we lack. You need to be patient with yourself as you sort out your life and yourself. Without patience you will be overcome with emotions of failure. Wait for the right moment and before you know it you will have all the opportunity you need!
Keep your calm while you build yourself. It could be anything you want a career or a dream.
You will be working hard with dedication but it may seem impossible if you have not achieved it yet. Focus on the positive aspect of the journey, the skills you acquire and how it grooms your personality and it will help you get through. Remain patient and you will get there.
It always seems impossible until it’s done. – Nelson Mandela
3. Conquer yourself
In order to progress you need to be able to face yourself each and every day. Fight your emotions and feelings… the thoughts and habits that stop you from evolving. Conquer yourself and you will have no fear in life. Challenge yourself and each day and emerge stronger than you were the day before.
“He who conquers others is strong; he who conquers himself is mighty” – Lao-tzu
