It’s not going to be all sunshine and rainbows. There are going to be times when life starts to slap you around and you’re gonna have to fight back. That’s a lot easier said than done when the weight of the world is crashing down on you. Use these tips to help when you’re in that slump and need a boost to get out and get going again.

– Sometimes you need to stop digging. Sometimes, just sometimes the struggle is self inflicted. Not always – but sometimes it is. If this is the case, Stop Digging! It is too hard to get out of the hole if you’re still digging and making it deeper.

– Tell the Truth. Get real honest with yourself and tell the truth. You might have everyone else fooled, and they will never know what’s really going on – and that’s fine. But you can’t fool yourself. Tell yourself the truth and start there.

– Be Grateful Everyday. They can take a lot… heck they can take everything. But don’t ever let them take your spirit. You need strength in your spirit in order to fight back. Find at least one thing to be grateful for everyday.

– Control the Controllables. The circumstances around you might not be your fault. You might have absolutely no control over them whatsoever. But there are things that you can control – and that starts with how you act and react. Control your decisions and make positive moves.

– Make a Plan. Think about what you want and make a plan to move in that direction. If you don’t know “How” to do it – education becomes your plan. Get on a program or do so research of your own. Copy others that are currently doing what you want to do. Their plan might not be the exactly perfect for you but it is a good start to help you grow and learn until you can build your own perfect plan.

– Execute. Do the work. Each and every day do a little small part of that plan. Those small action steps will build up to success.

It’s hard when things are bad and you freeze up. But you’re not alone, it gets hard for everyone from time to time. We all want to show our good side and put out that instagram highlight reel. And that’s great motivation and celebration. But when times are tough – use these strategies to help get you moving in the right direction again.
