Hi there lovelies, Welcome to another instalment of the Sunday Soul Food Series. I don’t know about you guys but the past two months have been one emotional roller coaster ride. I blame the full moon and new moon being In Cancer. They are some deep and brooding souls. I have lost count of all of the times I have literally said I can’t this month.
Then common sense kicked in and I realised whatever I speak will manifest. If I think I can’t then guess what I want . Have you guys ever felt that way like you just can’t deal with all of the ”stuff ” that life throws at you sometimes? Everything becomes so difficult and burdensome and a downright chore. You start to develop a defeatist attitude like maybe I should just lie here and not complete another damn thing.
When you start to feel this way just consider these four thoughts before you start to utter another negative word or have another woe is me thought.

It never is as hopeless as you think.

How do you react when faced with difficulties will always be the determinant of your level of satisfaction or success. We all have struggles, setbacks, hiccups. Think about it. Was there ever anything you ever went through that you did not grow through? The bad break up, the job loss, paying off those bills. It sometimes feels like it is taking a century but at the end of the day the situation does change and you overcome it. Have you ever been so damaged by anything that you went through that you did not survive another day? If you are reading this then chances are the answer is a bit fat NO. The next time you are feeling that you can’t, remember those times that you slew those dragons, wrestled with those demons and you still came out victorious. Those thoughts will give you the encouragement and that little injection of empowerment that you need to keep pushing through.

The problem is not the problem. It is your attitude about the problem that is the problem.

 

Yes, I meant to rhyme there. That heading sure is a mouthful. You essentially attract the energy that you put out. Fretting, fussing, cussing, frustration only attracts more things for you to get upset about . Be the one that looks for the solutions in times of crisis and not the one that runs and panics . The world isn’t ending the sky isn’t falling . What you envision as the outcome is what you will get . Try to focus your energy not on the size of the issue or the seemingly tragic outcome , instead focus on how you can and will overcome it .

Life does not happen on your timetable.

 

So maybe you want this one thing and you sat and you pictured it and you worked hard and still no results. What now? Do you give up or keep going ? in life, nothing rarely ever happens exactly how or when we want it to. When you make peace with that simple yet sometimes quite difficult fact; then you are halfway on the path to your dreams. We all get frustrated. we all want what we want and we want it now. I personally want to work four-hour days and retire at 40 and sip margaritas while laying on exotic beaches. We all have our dreams and aspirations. You will get what you want or maybe not. You will get something better. Life has a way of giving us what we need. Hold that vision and trust the process.

Sometimes when you think you can’t. You shouldn’t.

Have you ever had so much to do that you literally do not know where to start?  I am the type of person that procrastinates when I have a lot to do. After the procrastination then comes panic and me wondering what I was thinking I committed to all this ‘stuff’ in the first place. You really cannot be everything to everyone. You really cannot keep going and giving and doing like the energiser bunny. He has unlimited reserves, you do not. Next time you feel like you can’t. Examine where you place your energy What and who you give your attention to. Pay attention to your body, your emotions. Have you been taking care of yourself as you should?
Sometimes we just need to pause, declutter our mind, body and soul, Reevaluate our goals and most importantly; learn to say no to all the things that make us feel like crap. Just be with yourself. Recharge and rest. Always listen to your instincts they never ever lead you down the wrong path. Be kind to yourself always. Speak lovingly to and of yourself and turn that no I can’t into YES I WILL.

Thoughts become things
So what do you believe in?
Do you listen to that little nag in your head that says
”You can’t do it ”
or are you going to listen to that inner voice that screams
Everything that you wanted can be yours
You are doing your best.
I am going to win.

 

 

How do you cope when feeling like you can’t
What are some of the ways you stay motivated when life gets you down?

  1. I’m currently working on scaling my business so getting a few moments of “I can’t do this” my morning routine of personal development is really helping keeping me positive and motivated 💗

  2. “The problem is not the problem” is such an important statement. So many times we think that everything would be better and easier if the problem just wasn’t there, but in fact, –just as Wayne Dyer said– change the way you look at things, and the things you look at change.

    Great post! x

  3. I tend to keep going and going, even when times are tough but this is not always a good thing. It has taken years to develop intentional practices like deep breathing, yoga, and meditation to help me slow down and be present and in the moment rather than running on empty!

    • It takes a lot of getting used to not wanting to power through even when we are running on empty . I am glad that you have developed healthier habits .

  4. 110% RELATABLE. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times this year I’ve said “I can’t” or “I’m over this!”. It’s been a really stressful time and I love how much this spoke to me. Obviously, the only way things change is when I change my mindset/attitude.

    Thanks for the reminder!

    • Glad you can relate . I am hoping the last half of this year is less stressful and we both can generate happier and healthier thoughts 🙂

  5. I was feeling overwhelmed earlier this week and didn’t feel like doing somethings. I had to push myself and get things done!. It was so great

  6. I especially liked “The problem is not the problem. It is your attitude about the problem that is the problem. Very true! Most things seem insurmountable but rarely are. perspective is so important!

  7. Love this post, packed with nuggets of wisdom. 👍🏼 I tend to believe that the Mind is a powerful thing. Whether we think we can, or we think we cannot, we are right! When I am not my ”usual” self and feeling off kilter, I take a break – go to bed and let things be. Tomorrow is a new day filled with possibilities and a brand new set of opportunities.

  8. What a lovely inspiring post to start your day. I tend to give up sometimes when things start getting complicated and not understand where to start. But then a inner voice says, what if you feel you can’t then you should do it.

    For myself, I always need to check the cause of my lack of motivation. Typically I find that it is due to overwhelm and that means breaking things down to their itty bitty pieces!
