9 ways to overcome setbacks

Life can be challenging at times and seem to be filled with setbacks especially in such recent times as some of us may have experienced.

What are some of the ways you can deal with such times effectively in order to overcome them?

The following is some of the ways I have found to be useful to apply in such times;

  1. Take each day step by step-do what you can.
  2. Set mini goals- nothing too big.
  3. Check off those important things you’ve done and recognise your efforts.
  4. Create a gratitude list- every morning and/or evening- list all the things you are grateful for.
  5. Practice being present- be aware of your surroundings- focus in on the sights and sounds.
  6. Find ways to channel your energy- exercise regularly and do what you enjoy.
  7. Connect with others and support and encourage them too.
  8. Spend time in nature.
  9. Have faith- all things change and we always overcome.

All of the above are ways that you can manage in the here and now, as some difficulties can make it hard to look ahead. It is with the daily steps however that things always improve and you can overcome any setback.

Stay strong and focused ♡

Heaven in nature

“I tell you truly, the Book of Nature is a Holy Scroll, and if you would have the Sons of Men save themselves and find everlasting life, teach them how once again to read from the living pages of the Earthly Mother. For in everything that is life is the law written. It is written in the grass, in the trees, in rivers, mountains, birds of the sky and fishes of the sea; and most of all within the Son of Man.” 
~ Jesus, in The Essene Gospel of Peace

Mindset

Mindset is everything and the one thing we do have control over. We may be knocked down and have temporary setbacks but we can always choose how to face it and to get back up.

Life can be unfair, yet we decide what to do with what we’re given and where to take it from there.

If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.

Choose to be the hero in the story not the victim.

Whatever life has dealt you, you get to choose how you deal with it.

“If life wants to play, then decide to play it your way. Make it what you can and be the greatest hero in your story. Be the scriptwriter of your life.”
