Actions to take
- Be optimistic in all situations.
- Strive to look at the positive side of things.
- Write down all the positive events of the day.
Going through agony and unknowingness is something everyone experiences. It is rare to find a person who hasn’t gone through life’s trials and felt the anguish of not knowing what is next, or someone who doesn’t encounter sadness that seems unending. It could come through various events, sure, the intensity or the timing or duration might be different for different people but it is definitely a phase that everyone goes through. For most people these phases are what either build them to be stronger or break them down. For overcomers it is a rite of passage that paves their path for success.
So as you toss and turn through these phases, one sure thing that will keep you going is hope. Hope that there is something better waiting for you, hope that all your current problems will be resolved, hope that you’ll live through this and come out stronger. Hope is a powerful emotion, but hope without any relevant action is mere fantasy or a daydream. So, when you hope for something to happen, you also need to prepare yourself to be able to manage what you receive. And it is in the stage of preparation that you are empowered, you are strengthened and emotionally ready to walk into the next phase. You are able to overcome the dark side and see a brighter phase ahead of you.
Finding your ray of hope, a motivation, is crucial to your wellbeing. It helps you hold on and persevere because you know there are better things ahead. Your ray of hope gets you through the preparation stage as well, giving you a vision and showing you the path to reach it. Clinging on to this hope sets you up to overcome any challenge that comes your way. It also shows you that as after a dark night, the dawn brings in light, so will it be with you. Your ray of hope will shine through, preparing you to overcome and succeed.
