We all know that life can be really hard sometimes. And it doesn’t matter who you are, we are all together on this rollercoaster called life. So, when times are tough, and life gets heavy, it is important to find the strength within us to move forward.
These 9 mantras will keep you on the right track every time you feel like you’ve lost your balance.
1. LET GO OF THE PAST.
“You can’t start the next chapter if you keep rereading the last.”
Whatever happened in the past, let it stay there. The present is all that matters. Embrace your past, and learn from it, but don’t let your past stop you from moving on with your life.
2. REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE TRULY
“Sometimes you need to step outside, get some air, and remind yourself of who you are and where you want to be.”
We live busy lives and we focus on so many trivial things that we sometimes forget who we are and what we really need. So, take a break and remember what thing is the most important to you.
“Listen and silent are spelled with the same letters. Think about it.”
We can learn more by listening and trying to understand people instead of only by listening with the intent to reply. Learn to just listen to someone without thinking what you should say next.
4. IT IS PROBABLY NOT MEANT FOR YOU
“If it doesn’t open, it’s not your door.”
No matter how hard you try, some things are not meant to be. You can’t control everything. You need to accept that some things can never change and move on to new opportunities.
5. KEEP MOVING FORWARD
“If you don’t like where you are, move. You are not a tree.”
In life, you always have a choice. If you are in a bad relationship, leave. If you hate your job, quit. You need to be brave to move on from anything that is not making you happy.
6. MINGLE WITH THE YOUNG
“Sometimes, you need to talk to a three-year-old just so you can understand life again.”
We all try to be rational and practical that we tend to forget the simple things in life. Let’s all be kids for one day and enjoy the life in the purest and simplest way possible!
7. LISTEN TO YOUR HEART
“Sometimes, you have to stop thinking so much and just go where your heart takes you.”
Overthinking leads to hesitation and anger. It is essential to listen to your instincts and get in touch with your real emotions and what’s your purpose in life. Focus more on yourself and your heart’s desires.
8. BAD THINGS CAN LEAD 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 the negativity in our life. Nothing is as bad as it looks like. Every negative thing happens can lead to something positive.
9. THE BEST IS YET TO COME
“Always remember that your present situation is not your final destination. The best is yet to come.”
Understand that the present situation doesn’t mean that your future will be like that. Everything passes. Everything changes. Life is constantly moving, so are you. Just breathe, and hold on.
