Positive Thinking When Times Are Hard

We’ve all had those moments; the ones where it feels as though the entire world is going to collapse, right into the palm of our hands. One thing after another seems to slip, and our life seems to be this downhill roller coaster ride, with no brakes to pause or stop. A feeling may emerge at the pit of the stomach, our head may race, and we may feel completely, hopelessly, and utterly lost. Life seems to throw those curveballs at us sometimes – but how can we possibly get out of this? If you’ve been caught in a constant loop of negative feedback and you can’t seem to get out, it’s time to do something about it. You’ve gone on far too long with anxiety, depression, anger, irritability, and stress looming around in your mind, body, and spirit – it’s time to get to work.

Positive thinking isn’t just for the “hopeful” or for those who like to “see the glass as half full”. In fact, positive thinking can be a deliberate decision – giving you full control and choice over the matter. Now you may be thinking to yourself, “How am I supposed to choose to be happy amidst this chaos? I’m supposed to be content with everything falling apart?” In short, no – positive thinking isn’t about being happy with every situation and circumstance you run into – it’s about being content with your life because you can only change what you can, and you understand that you must accept the things you can’t. Positive thinking is about embracing what you do have right now, and what you can work within the moment to help you get through the hard times. If you can master this, you’re pretty close to mastering life.

When the going gets tough, life tends to have a way of testing our strength and our resiliency. Positive thinking sets us up for this by giving us a clear mindset, even amidst fog and uncertainty. American author and lecturer Dale Carnegie once stated, “Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.”

Start feeding your mind with positive, productive thoughts. Practice counteracting those negative, pesky thoughts with ones that are more reasonable and are based on logic rather than in-the-moment emotions. You will get through this hard time. You are truly capable. You’ve made it before, and you will make it again. You are not alone.
