There are times in life that you feel like everything is just falling apart. Things aren’t that awesome as you would want it to be in your career, love life and family relationships.
When you feel helpless and defeated, remember what Winston Churchill once said, “Success is going from one failure to another without losing enthusiasm.” Whenever you’re feeling like a failure even when you’re definitely not, go back to this article and be reminded why you’re actually doing okay:
#1. You’ve lived and you’ve learned
All the past hurts, defeats, failures that you have encountered has made you into the resilient, strong person that you are now. There were bumps in the road but you were able to overcome them, no matter the pain it caused you. Move on in faith, hope and love and believe that everything has a purpose.
#2. You have an actual bed to sleep in at night
There are families out there who won’t have any comfortable beds to sleep in tonight the way that you would. Consider yourself blessed that even if you take something as normal as a bed for granted, others actually pray that they are able to sleep on one instead of having to lay on the ground.
#3. You want and strive to be better
Because you know that you’re not achieving the things you want to attain, making you feel down, you strive to do more and be better than where you are now. The main objective is for you not to give up regardless the problems thrown your way. Keep in mind what Einstein had said before, “It’s not that I am so smart, it’s that I stay with problems longer.”
#4. You have a job
There are a lot of jobless people who are hoping to get even a temporary job in order to earn money. If you happen to have a job right this very moment, consider yourself one of the lucky few. If you’ve recently just left the company, don’t feel down. Look at this as an opportunity to find the one you love that it wouldn’t have to feel like you’re working.
#5. Knowledge is easily accessible
With the internet, knowledge is right at your fingertips. There’s so much to learn and there are free tools you can use to enhance your skills or learn more of. Seize the opportunities that come your way to educate yourself further and help you become better in the process.
#6. You have lots of food to eat
Just like number 2, we often take for granted what we have on a daily basis. There are millions of people around the world who are going hungry because they do not have the resources to eat, unlike you do. Savor every bite of your next meal and give thanks that you are able to eat something delicious.
#7. You can make a choice
Often overlooked, having a choice and making an intelligent one is a very powerful tool that any individual has. Aristotle once said, “Choice, not chance, determines your destiny.” Make the right choices and claim your power to choose whenever you can.
#8. You experienced what it’s like to be in love
No matter if it turned out sour or you’re still happy together, the important thing is that you were able to experience such a wondrous feeling others don’t give themselves the chance to do so. It’s never wrong to fall in love. Make lots of good memories and treasure them forever.
#9. You have access to clean and potable water
Access to safe, clean and potable water has been a problem all over the world. It has in fact, become one of the pressing problems that international organizations work hard to solve. Be glad that you have drinking water any given time you want to.
#10. You have a dream
Let no one tell you that your dream is crazy because it is yours and you know that you can achieve it as long as you put your mind to it. Never give up on your dreams even if others say they are worthless.
#11. You are truly and really happy
Happiness is a choice, and if you are able to find happiness and make it yours even in the simplest or even the most difficult of situations, well and good. Choose to find the happy side of things and everything will slowly start to become better.
#12. You have clothes
Never say that you have nothing to wear, especially when you have a dresser full of clothes waiting to be worn. You don’t have to go butt naked around the city because you don’t have any clothes at all. Enjoy the fact that you have an attire for every occasion and that you don’t have to go through life without any clothes on.
#13. You have the ability to forgive others
Life without forgiveness is bitter and sad. If you cannot forgive yourself and others for the mistakes that they have done, it would be impossible to live a life that is peaceful and happy. Choose to forgive and move on, not for others’ sake, but for yourself.
#14. You know and believe that something is far greater than yourself
Whether you believe in a God or in your family, you know that it is because of them that you have a purpose. For all those times that you feel down and small, you took a step back and realized that there is infinitely something greater than you are.
#15. You can make friends
Your ability to make friends whether near your vicinity or somewhere halfway around the world is a sign that you are doing okay. When you allow other people to enter your life and become your friend, then you are doing okay even if you don’t think so.
