Is finding a way on overcoming challenges something you are working on? I believe in you. You can do it! Overcoming challenges is not something I only come across in my daily therapy work but also in my daily life. Here are six easy to implement tips that work for me any time, no matter how tough the obstacle may be.
“Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.” ~Gail Devers
Stop and Breath – 6 Steps that Make Overcoming Challenges Easier
Step One: Stop. Breath. Believe.
Stop. Take a deep breath. Let go. Believe. You are loved.
Whatever challenge or obstacle you are facing, you will get through. Whatever you need, you will find. Whatever you are feeling, it will pass.
“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.” ~Norman Vincent Peale
Step Two: Breath. Let Go.
Take another breath. Let go a little more.
You are exactly where you are meant to be. All challenges and obstacles are given to you for growing. All is for learning. Mistakes are meaningful. Failure is not trying.
Step Three: Breath. Let Go. Again.
Take another breath. Let go again. You are wonderful, beautiful, perfectly imperfect.
Any doubt you have about your worth is a lie. You are loved.
“Be strong, be fearless, be beautiful. And believe that anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you.” ~Misty Copeland
Step Four: Breath. Focus on Gratitude.
Keep breathing. You have so much to be grateful for.
You have everything you need to overcome your challenges. Even if it doesn’t feel like it, I promise it’s true. It’s ok to want more. Don’t forget to appreciate all that you have.
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” ~John F. Kennedy
Step Five: Breath. Relax. Trust.
Fill your belly with your breath. Relax. Trust.
Whatever challenge or obstacle you are struggling with, there is a solution. Whatever you need help with, there is someone who wants to help you. Stay open. Ask for what you need.
“I truly believe that everything that we do and everyone that we meet is put in our path for a purpose. There are no accidents; we’re all teachers – if we’re willing to pay attention to the lessons we learn, trust our positive instincts and not be afraid to take risks or wait for some miracle to come knocking at our door.” ~Marla Gibbs
Step Six: Relax. Let Go. Breathe.
Relax. Let go. Breathe deeply.
Sometimes life is painful. Sometimes life is joyous. You are capable of more than you know. I believe in you. You are loved.
“Believe you can and you’re halfway there.” ~Theodore Roosevelt
