Life can be a roller coaster of emotions and it can become hard to deal with the ups and downs. Almost everyone deals with stress, depression, anxiety and some or other mental health problems. Some people end up thinking that they are the most terrible person that ever existed. But that is not true. Sometimes the going gets tough, negativity pierces a hole into the soul which at one point might seem impossible to mend. The key is to have a different outlook on your problems.
Reminding yourself that each day is a blessing and these petty problems will go away if you put enough efforts. Even the biggest problem of life will not seem as difficult as it may be if you would just live by these affirmations. All you need is to let positive thoughts flow through the mind. So get up and remind yourself of the following affirmations every day:
I can do this
Keep telling yourself that you can do this. You have faced it so far then what is a few more problem. Once you are done with the toil then you will definitely bear the price of achieving what you wanted to. Keep smiling through all the vicissitudes of life by saying "I can do this" - think of this as the first step towards success. You have to tame your mind to think that it is all good and it is just another feather in your cap.
Nothing can bring me down
Do not let any challenges bring you down or make you feel defeated. Nothing but you can bring yourself down so gear up and fight. Get up from the bottom because you have to reach the heights. This time face your fears and don't let them empower you. Never succumb to a bad situation and become a victim. Rather be a warrior - what shall seem impossible in the beginning but it is not. If you have this in mind that nothing can bring you down and you are not going to let your fear of losing take over your victory, then you all set to achieve what you want to achieve. Nothing can stop you if you put all your heart and mind to it.
I am better than this
If there is a problem, there is definitely going to be a solution. Do not tell yourself otherwise even for a second. Problems are meant to be solved and hurdles are meant to be jumped. Like a math problem, hurdles and hardships seem punishing at first but soon you will be able to find a solution if you put your mind to it. No challenge is big enough and no problem is better than you.
Each suffering is a stepping stone
In life, there might come a time when you will feel that you have failed. But remember that failure is just a concept, given the importance will dominate our minds. The key is to treat these problems as a stepping stone on your way to success. We as humans try, miss and then try again. Do not let people tell you that you are a failure if they do then you need to get rid of these people. Live your life on your terms and don't let anybody tell you otherwise. It is alright to miss, learn from this and score next time.
