What can I do when nothing seems to be working?
Life is a series of peaks and bottom rocks. It’s a natural cycle of life. Business sometimes go up, sometimes down; in both you just stay working. Some of our challenges come from circumstances out of our control while others are direct consequences or results of the decisions we make. Have come to agree with the saying; “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react”.
Your personality is revealed in how you handle difficult times whether in business, job, marriage, relationships…Etc. When you are at the bottom rock in life; do you give-up and choose to stay in that Zone or you improve your ability to bounce back to the peak. You can’t enjoy success in business if you have not overcome some challenges. Challenges helps your Business improve; grow even you as the owner.
“The ability, skills and efforts you apply will either take you to the peak of success or keep you at the bottom rock of your business and life”. ~~Lakica Beatrice
Here are 5 tips to make things work in your life/business.
- Seek God
‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’ Jeremiah 33:3 (NKJV). This is one of my favorite Bible verse.
At the cross roads in life, choose to relax, stay calm, put everything secondary and God first. Have personally done this every time I can’t explain why things are not moving the way I want them to. Especially, when you put so much effort to see an accomplishment in your business, job, marriage, family but the end is worse than the start. Take time and seek God; it could be 10 mins of prayer and 10 mins of meditating on God’s word every morning. God knows our beginnings and endings; so if you don’t understand -know that God understands. There are things that you know nothing about in your business and life But God knows including your purpose in life. God is faithful. God knew that it will not be a smooth journey so He promised to answer us if we ran to Him in prayer. To seek Him and He will respond.
“God is the answer to all our questions if we put Him at the start of everything in our lives”. ~~Lakica Beatrice
2. Believe in yourself
“Never let the negativity get to you. There are going to be a lot of people you have to plow through, but as long you believe in yourself, that’s all that matters.” – Becky G.
Sometimes life hits you hard to the rough patches/surface of all areas in life. You feel hopeless, helpless, and worthless and doubt your abilities to go through it. You tend to believe in others abilities, time and money to come rescue you; but the fact is not until you believe in yourself nothing will change. Am not saying that- don’t look for solution elsewhere or from your mentors but the first step is to believe that you will make it with or without help. It is your life and what you do with it is all up to you. Credit yourself for everything you have already done. Don’t let challenges, critics drive you out of your abilities to make changes and progress, take action; believe that you’re the best person to do it and you will get to the top even stronger. You’ll boost your confidence and courage to face even greater challenges as you make mega accomplishments in your life.
“Believing in yourself is the only way you can be assured of living your dream and life that you love”. ~~Lakica Beatrice
