If you take a look at the financial markets you’ll notice there is an upward trend all the time.
Of course, here and there, from time to time, they go down – for a while. But eventually they pick up and continue to bounce back and continue to grow.
Life can often be like this – for everyone.
Everything is going along just fine, life is good, everything seems to be working out just dandy, then bam! A hitch. A stumble. Maybe even a fall.
At that point rather than thinking that everything has gone wrong, that your world is caving in, and nothing will be the same again – realise it’s just a blip on the graph.
Look back at your life, can you see any other blips? Trawl further and further back, surely there were some blips hear and there. You lost a job, a partner left you, or maybe you failed an exam etc.
You got over it right? At least I hope you did.
So here’s the thing, we must look at these blips as simply that: blips in an otherwise upward trend. A crest leads to a trough which leads to a crest and so on.
This perspective (bigger picture) may help you see that your present predicament is temporary and that You can choose to move towards the next crest.
PS: If you are having trouble reaching the crests, if you seem to find deeper and deeper troughs, then start somewhere. Your relationships, your health, your career.
