How do you motivate yourself to get up when you hit rock bottom? When life gets really hard?

What would you tell someone who has just hit rock bottom and is about to give up?

When I hit rock bottom, I take a step back and look at my life from a different perspective. For example, I would wake up and be happy that I’m above the ground (still alive) and that I had a bed to sleep in. No matter how bad we think things are, there’s always someone else who’s in a worse situation and we can be grateful that we are doing better than them.

Another thing I like to do is to read about the past failures of successful people. You’d be surprised at the things some famous names went through and they made it despite all the hardship. That really gets me going.

I would tell them that they’re not a failure until they give up. Things are not going to be easy because if it was, everyone will be successful, but the perseverance is worth it.

How do you motivate yourself to get up when you hit rock bottom? When life gets really hard?

What would you tell someone who has just hit rock bottom and is about to give up?

Have you ever heard of this before “WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LIMES, REARRANGE THE LETTERS AND SMILE”?
The first time I ever hit the rock bottom in my life, I came across that quote coincidentally and it felt as if the writer had me in mind while writing those words.

I healed with those few but beautiful words and realized just like how little flowers can gradually turn into a forest so to speak, you can trim those flowers and make a beautiful garden.

I give myself the power to feed my mind on what I need, not what life wants me to hear.
Most importantly, I remind myself the tomorrow will be fairer just in case today ever seemed dark for me, so even when I get to the tomorrow I wait for the other tomorrow. that’s how I survive.

To anyone there, who has just hit the rock bottom and wants to give up, I won’t tell you not to. It’s a choice. However, one thing you know is, the minute you give up, you deny yourself opportunities to win, opportunities to smile and laugh again.

Because life itself is beautiful, life itself is awesome. You must know that it is not life itself that robs you of your joy but ‘you’.

So before you give up, weigh these two options, when you give up, that’s the end to all the beautiful things you could ever see and taste again. If you choose to live on, perhaps you will see that time is all you need to heal and start enjoying life all over.

Just imagine the good old days you wished would last forever and see what you want to now deny yourself of.

But just in case none of these makes sense to you, you might want to hear my voice first before giving up. If you contact me, and you still feel like giving up, then I’ll give up even before you do.

How do you motivate yourself to get up when you hit rock bottom? When life gets really hard?

What would you tell someone who has just hit rock bottom and is about to give up?

I had times in my life when I felt very discouraged. Sometimes it was because of health problems, financial reasons or love issues. When any of these happen, you feel depressed and you are unable to see a solution.

Even when friends advise you, you still feel that they don’t understand, that it seems easy for them to distinguish good from bad because they are outsiders but things aren’t so simple for you. So, yes, I do understand what you feel.

The first thing you have to do is to look closely at your life and find other times in your life when you felt hopeless. You will see that although you felt you hit rock bottom before you still manage to get over it. You need to have confidence in yourself and trust comes from experience.

Stop dwelling on what you lost, or what could have been. Focus on finding a solution for the situation in which you are now.

If you are sick and you wonder why is this happening to you, well it doesn’t matter why. You may feel it’s a divine punishment for something that you aren’t guilty but there is no point in thinking about all these. Go to the hospital, see what the doctor recommends, then go to another doctor and ask for a second opinion. Take the treatment or do the surgery they recommend. You can get better only if you take action.

If you lost your job and you don’t have any savings then search for another job fast. You can accept even a lower paid job for a while and later continue searching for something better that fits your skills.

If your partner broke up with you and you weren’t ready for this, stop obsessing about him or her. You may feel it’s your fault for not being good enough to make the other person happy but that is not true.

It’s useless to try to come up with plans on how to get him or her back. Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option. Stop wanting someone that doesn’t want you anymore. There is a big world out there. No matter your age or social status, if you start getting out and meeting new people you will find the right person for you.

How do you motivate yourself to get up when you hit rock bottom? When life gets really hard?

What would you tell someone who has just hit rock bottom and is about to give up?

I’ve been through this phase only recently, and probably, I’m still, passively there. I hit rock bottom, and I hit hard because reality can sometimes be too cruel to handle.

What I did at this time was to let my mind wander, I set myself free, I took a break, and I didn’t set a time limit for this break. I travelled and I spent time with myself to understand the dilemma that I was in. The people I trust the most counselled me, and in all these things, I found my courage to get back out there.

As I wrote above, I’ve been there, I know how it feels, perhaps a little different but not entirely. I know that giving up seems like the only option, like the easiest option, but you must understand that success doesn’t hide behind the door that is easiest to reach. Give yourself the time to think and make a new plan.

The most important thing here is the acceptance of change if required. Don’t stick to the idea that seemed good at first but is impossible to execute. Be flexible, and talk to those you deeply trust.

Trust me, this too shall pass.

How do you motivate yourself to get up when you hit rock bottom? When life gets really hard?

What would you tell someone who has just hit rock bottom and is about to give up?

The universe moves in a cyclic fashion. Life too moves in cycles of good and bad days. You cannot have light without darkness.

So whenever I face hard times I accept it humbly and wait for the good days to come again. This is so natural.

the most obvious reactions of people during bad times is cursing life and God and blaming others for their sorrows. Let me tell you these things will instead magnify the negative energies inside you.

If you want to be joyful and peaceful even in sad times practice these:

i) Look at yourself and compare your sorrows with the people who are in more pain and suffering. For example an orphan kid down the street, a beggar who is struggling for a piece of bread, the blind man who has made darkness his companion and so on…

if you do this, you will realize how LUCKY YOU ARE!

ii) Practice meditation, yoga and read motivating and spiritual books (Don’t just read for the sake of reading. Try to implement these in your life).

you can read this to understand how to deal with failures in details:

Every living organism in this universe has to face good and bad times. You are not an exception to this. So instead of crying over your fate, get up and fight like a warrior.

How do you motivate yourself to get up when you hit rock bottom? When life gets really hard?

What would you tell someone who has just hit rock bottom and is about to give up?

I understand that failure is not the final destination but a guide to a process. There is so much you can learn when Life gets really hard.The problem is being able to see opportunities in every difficulty as there are certain challenges that might overwhelm you.

The problem is being able to see opportunities in every difficulty as there are certain challenges that might overwhelm you.I keep reminding myself that there is always gold in every dirt.

I keep reminding myself that there is always gold in every dirt.

I will not say that I don’t get discouraged sometimes but I am grateful that I’ve been able to stand on the shoulders of great people who were able to overcome the challenges I am facing.

Learning from others has been a great aid for me.

First thing is to never give up because there might be a “Maybe” in your life.

You will be filled with regrets for not taking the path that is filled with uncertainty. So it is best to never give up so that you don’t experience that “had I known” moment.

It is also great to surround yourself with mentors or people who inspire you, they will always pick you up when you fall flat.

Also, the success rate is always shortened after several failures. The more you fail, the more you are close to overcoming your challenges.

Wouldn’t it be strange to give up when you are close to success?

How do you motivate yourself to get up when you hit rock bottom? When life gets really hard?

What would you tell someone who has just hit rock bottom and is about to give up?

Hardships in life are indispensable. It’s a part of life. The very first thing I try to do when I feel like I hit rock bottom is to stay calm and try to be as compassionate with myself as possible. In these stormy times, I like to tell myself multiple times that I did what I could and that I did a great job at it. I also remind myself daily that this is just temporary and that better is around the corner.

You see nothing is permanent, not even hard times so it is better to live the moment and give yourself credit for trying.

Because only through failure and error will I be able to become a better person. I always tell people who are going through a hard time to give themselves more credit for trying. By giving yourself credit, you unknowingly boost your self-esteem and build your confidence and it gives you the strength you need to withstand the storm and not succumb to failure.
