We all know that life can sometimes be harsh on us. No matter who you are we all battle tough times here and there. So keep reading to learn ten mantras that will help you to get through those difficult times!
When you encounter a difficult situation, you might need something extra to help you push through and give you the energy to move forward, to get back up again and be ready for the next challenges life throws your way.
Below are our favorite mantras to help you past a difficult time and keep moving forward.
1. The Best Is Yet To Come
“Always remember that your present situation is not your final destination. The best is yet to come.”
The present moment is not your future. The only fundamental law of nature is change. If things are not going well right now, it will eventually pass. It will change. Just breathe and hold yourself up.
2. Bad Things Can Guide To Good Things
“Sometimes the bad things that happen in our lives put us directly on the path to the best things that will ever happen to us.”
It’s our perception that creates negative realities in our mind. The true reality is that the universe is indifferent. You never know what can come out of a bad experience. And it’s probably not as bad as our minds make us believe.
3. Keep Moving Forward
“If you don’t like where you are, move. You are not a tree.”
Life is about moving. If you feel you’re in a lousy relationship, move on. If you can’t stand your job, quit. You have choices. You need to learn how to see those opportunities. Sometimes you need the courage to accept that you’re not happy and just move on.
4. Let Go Of The Past
“You can’t start the next chapter if you keep rereading the last.”
It doesn’t matter how bad your past was. It is the past now. The present, the now, is all that exists. If you don’t leave the past in the past and focus on what you can do today, you will never be able to move forward and live in the present moment. You need to learn lessons from the past and start over again today.
5. It’s Probably Not Meant For You
“If it doesn’t open, it’s not your door.”
Even when you work hard, sometimes things are not meant to be. You cannot control everything. Acceptance is necessary so you can move on and see that there are always other opportunities waiting for you.
6. Remember Who You Truly Are
“Sometimes you need to step outside, get some air, and remind yourself of who you are and where you want to be.”
With the busy lives we have in today’s society, we sometimes forget who we truly are. It’s good to take a break, assemble your thoughts and clear your mind sometimes.
7. Mingle With The Young
“Sometimes you need to talk to a three-year-old just so you can understand life again.”
We all think we are practical and rational, yet often we misinterpret the simplicity of life. Life is about enjoyment and being present.
“Listen and silent are spelled with the same letters. Think about it.”
We learn so much more when we listen and understand people than when we listen just to reply. Learn to listen to people without already thinking of what to say after the person stops talking.
9. Listen To Your Heart
“Sometimes, you have to stop thinking so much and just go where your heart takes you.”
Overthinking usually leads to anger and hesitation. It’s better to disconnect and get in touch with your real feelings and what you think is important in life. Forget about judgments and talk more to yourself.
10. Don’t Stop Believing
“Never stop believing in miracles because miracles happen every day.”
Hope is the most important emotion we have. If we don’t get positive that the future will be better, then the chances are high that it won’t be. By giving yourself hope, things are more likely to work out okay in the end.
