5 Tips to Stay Positive When Life Gets Tough

When things start to get tough, it’s easy to start to dwell on the negative. But it’s important to remember that life can be unpredictable and there’s no guarantee that things will always go our way. So, rather than focusing on the negative, it’s important to stay positive. No matter how bad things seem, remember that there is always a chance for things to improve. Here are some tips to help you stay positive when life gets tough:

Recognize when your mood is affected by events outside of your control.

One of the most common things that impact our mood is the events that occur outside of our control. For example, if someone close to us dies, this can have a big impact on our mood. Other events that can have a big impact on our mood are things like being stuck in traffic, being pissed by someone, facing failure in some work, or unexpected workload. Regardless of the cause, it is important to recognize when our mood is affected by events that are out of our control. This will help us to better manage our emotions and stay in a positive frame of mind.

Talk to friends and family about your feelings and how you’re feeling.

Talk to friends and family about your feelings and experiences. Let them know what’s going on in your life, and be open about your feelings. Let them help you. Talk about your experiences with your friends and family. They can provide support and encouragement. Let them know if you need to talk about anything in more detail. It’s important to be able to talk about your feelings. It can help you to understand and cope with your experiences. It can be helpful to have people who understand you and who are willing to listen.

Keep a journal to document your thoughts and feelings.

Starting a journal can be a great way to improve your mental well-being, as well as to track your progress. Journaling can also be a cathartic experience, allowing you to express your thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment. The journal can also be a great way to document your progress and keep track of your accomplishments. Some people prefer to write in a personal notebook, while others prefer to write on a Computer/laptop. Start writing. Even if you don’t have anything specific to say right now you can simply write down your thoughts, feelings, accomplishments, or just how your day goes.

Exercise regularly to boost your mood and reduce stress.

Exercise regularly to boost your mood and reduce stress. Exercise releases feel-good endorphins that can help improve mood and reduce anxiety and stress, not just that but it also helps you to stay fit physically and emotionally. Some physicians recommend 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise each week. This can include brisk walking, running, cycling, swimming, or playing team sports.

Be hopeful for the future and live in the present.

When we are hopeful for the future, we live in the present. Hopeful people are resilient and are able to see the good in situations. They stay focused on their goals and stay positive, even during difficult times. When we live in the present, we are more connected to our emotions and can calm ourselves in difficult situations. We also have more patience and can appreciate the small things in life.
The future is always uncertain, but by being hopeful we can allow ourselves to dream and plan for the future. We can live in the present and enjoy the journey, instead of worrying about the destination.


When times get tough, it can be easy to fall into a negative spiral. Sometimes it gets worse that getting out of that dark room feels impossible or really hard. If needed please seek professional help in such a case.
Staying positive is important. One thing that you can do is to remember that things will get better. Another thing that you can do is focus on the good things in your life. Believe in yourself. This can be difficult, but it can help you to approach life with a positive attitude and, as a result, feel happier and more in control.

you will be okay, you have no choice

Learning to detach – From the book “Tuesdays with Morrie”

¡Hola Amigos!!! Hoping you all are safe and doing well. Last week, I was reading this wonderful book “Tuesdays with Morrie” by the author Mitch Albom. The book is about sharing some really great and deep pearls of wisdom about life, by a dying man to one of his old students Mitch. They met each other every Tuesday, and Morrie shares his powerful words of wisdom and some life lessons. I don’t know if you have already read this book or not but if not, I will strongly recommend you all to read this. I believe you will find it astonishing. My today’s post is to share my feelings or can say a few thoughts on one of the topics discussed in this book “Detachment”.

On one of the Tuesdays, while discussing emotions, Morrie told Mitch that how and why learning to detach is important. However, Morrie was the person who always talk about experiencing every moment in life even good or bad. But, this time he was talking differently. He is saying to detach yourself from the experiences. It was strange for Mitch so, when Mitch gets confused about this he asked to explain and in reply Morrie said:

“Detachment doesn’t mean you don’t let the experience penetrate you. On the contrary, you let it penetrate you fully. That’s how you are able to leave it .”

“Take any emotion–love for a woman, or grief for a loved one, or what I’m going through, fear and pain from a deadly illness. If you hold back on the emotions–if you don’t allow yourself to go all the way through them–you can never get to being detached, you’re too busy being afraid. You’re afraid of the
pain, you’re afraid of the grief. You’re afraid of the vulnerability that loving entails. But by throwing yourself into these emotions, by allowing yourself to dive in, all the way, over your head even, you experience them fully and completely. You know what pain is. You know what love is. You know what grief is. And only then can you say, ‘All right. I have experienced that emotion. I recognize that emotion. Now I need to detach from that emotion for a moment.”

How thoughtful it is, no? This whole conversation gave me a reason to stop and think about what exactly Morrie is trying to teach here. We all have a habit of holding onto our past, our problems, pains, grief, regret, anger with friends, family, or any other beloved, but happiness. isn’t it? I feel that. If we go through a rough time we keep holding onto the pain of it and stay in grief for long. but oppositely, if we go through any happy moment we live that moment for the time and then we move on. Why does it take so long to move on from the pain like it is not going to end ever? I think because we don’t allow ourselves to move on. we do not allow ourselves to experience any other emotions when we are depressed. But, on the other side, we let our happiness be compromised with any other negative emotion so easily. If you are happy and someone calls you bad, you immediately get angry or sad but if you are sad and someone tells you nice things, then you do not get in a happy mood. I am sure if you take a pause and give it a thought, you will find the same.

If we hold back any of the emotions we would never be able to walk ahead in life. Life goes on and so we should. Things happen, good, bad and it keeps coming and going away. If today is bad, it is ok to feel sad, to cry, to feel pain but holding it till tomorrow makes your tomorrow bad too. I don’t know much about you but for me, I really need to practice learning to detach from not only bad emotions but good too.

I hope you will find this helpful too. Looking forward to your thoughts on this or any other topic from the book “Tuesdays with Morrie” if you have read it already. Have a great day every day!

How do you inspire success?

Success is something we all chase to achieve. Jumping over the challenges and standing back from failures moving toward the aim is not that easy as it sound. It need a lot of courage to stand back and start again when failure hit you so hard. It need so much power to keep focus on the goal and jump over the challenges that can push you hard to think again to be on a path that you decided.

Success don’t come overnight it need consistency of hard work and patience with clear vision. I believe we all need to follow some rules to stay on track to inspire success and I am sharing some of the principles to follow and practice in daily life.


5 principles to inspire Success

  1. Believe in yourself Never doubt your strength, never underestimate yourself. You are way more powerful than you think. Always stay loyal and true to yourself and trust your gut.
  2. Be Risk Taker- Don’t sit back in thinking of falling. It’s ok to be afraid but you must get down into the well to dig deep for water. Come out of your comfort zone to find new ways, new experiences, and to meet your strength.
  3. Watch Your Limitations- We all are limited, no is like everything to everyone always. There is no shame to ask for help where needed. And learn to say “No” where required.
  4. Work Hard- We all know this work hard pays its worth. It is important not to give up on your shore and if you fail this time, just jump back in the ocean with more power.
  5. Be Kind and respectful to everyone- I don’t think this needs any explanations. Disrespectful and egoist person can never achieve the crown of success.

Never stop dreaming and working on your dreams. Vision will help you to achieve great things and hard work will help you to build that dream exactly as you wished for.

Comment down if you have more suggestions, great rules, mantras or practices to inspire success in our life.

Share with all- What are your key points in your life?

“Something you have is a dream of someone to have”

This is true and can’t be denied that whatever you have, whatever you get, or achieved, there is someone out there having a dream of all those, and they are praying, they are trying and fighting all day and night to have those not just because they need it but also they understand the value of all those things. The thing can be wealth, health, food, shelter, knowledge, family, friends, basic needs, or maybe luxuries for some and so other things. They actually know how it feels not having any of those just like you know how it feels not having a thing that you want to have. So, they understand the value and do work hard for those and pray sun and moon. But before you conclude anything here, I want to add that too that while they are dreaming and praying to have something that they don’t have, there are many other dreaming and praying for things that at least they have.

There is nothing wrong to dream for more and more but we should always be grateful too for everything that we have.

I am grateful for having good health, good job, family, and list of other thousand things and hoping you are too.

Comment down your dreams, your thoughts and let all know What are you grateful for.

Let’s Get ready to Fly

With every book you read, you reach one step higher in the sky where you find your world bigger than ever before.

I am not a regular reader but I started reading books recently and felt the changes it brings to me. I now agree with the quote “Books are our best Friend”. Not only because they are accessible anywhere anytime you need but they are the best teacher too. They understand you as no human can do. 

I felt like, books are the entrance of another world that is totally different from the world we are living in. It is a world hidden in the words, and you can paint it in the picture as you want. No buddy stops you here or holds your thoughts to touch the sky.

When there is nowhere to go I believe you can still travel the world and explore its beauty by just sitting on your couch and holding a cup of coffee. The more you read the more you travel. Once you are connected to this world, you can talk to the people, you can feel the atmosphere and even you can paint the pictures in your head as I said as you want. The best part is, everything will be exactly as your expectation.

I also found this is the only world where you can imagine anything out of the real world and make them alive to live in your stories. The Unicorns. The Fairies. All exists in this world. You can see fishes flying in the sky and birds swimming underwater. This is the world where magic is real and the beauty of this world is, that sometimes you lose yourself in this world and sometimes you find yourself there too.

If you dive deep inside the ocean of the words, you will fly higher in the sky of knowledge.

Let’s get ready to fly!
