Feeling down? We’ve all been there, dude…

Recently I’ve been talking to various people about self-motivation when times are tough.

No, I’m not going to write about motivation this time.

I’m going to write about how we, awesome people, sometimes just feel down.

The people I talked to were entrepreneurs, entrepreneurs-to-be, managers, team leaders, unemployed, the ones on sick leave, so on and so forth… Creative, inspiring, open-minded people, in general. They all admitted to have blue devils occasionally. Well, it happens, right? We are not super human species after all. Life is not only about having fun, celebrating successes and constantly eating the cake. Sometimes we have to sweat, cry and bear down a little so that we can appreciate better moments.

Many of us are going through tough times, we have quit our jobs, we have been made redundant, we have divorced, we are planning setting up our own business, we are going to set up a family, we are going to pack our things and move to a different country, etc. There are moments we feel powerless, with no energy nor positive attitude. It may happen. It’s quite normal, I would say. There is nothing wrong with such a feeling from time to time. BUT please bear in mind, these are just thoughts, a projection of your mind. They will come, they will go. They should not define who we really are…

If you found yourself in a difficult situation, it only means there is a next challenge for you. From life. Try to perceive it as an opportunity, as a task to accomplish (maybe a painful one, damn, one of the most painful ones in your life!).

How can you go about it? What can you learn from that? Is there anyone who can help you with it? Do you have anyone to talk to about your fears?

It’s crucial we have someone to support us in our endevors. In business, it’s good to have a partner who will pull us out of our ”big black hole” when we feel that nothing works fine. It’s also important we always have someone who will cheer us up when times are tough, who will remind us how awesome we are and that everything’s ok with us, we are just going through difficult moments.

So… just never give up! Because you’re great and can do big stuff.

If you do not believe in yourself, who will? Start with yourself! Others will follow, trust me.

And… never loose sight of your goal!

Below one of the famous pic shared so many times on Facebook. I am putting it here not without any reason 😉

Cheer up, buddy! 🙂

  1. Great article, as usual:) It also reminds me that we need to be on the other side as well – I mean supporting side. There are times when we need someone to cheer us up and remind us that we are great… and we should remember to give the same to others from our environment – it happens so rarely. In the crisis times majority of people is looking for help for themselves and there is not much place left to support our friends.

    So thank you Patrycja, you have just supported your readers, collegues and friends…

  2. Thank you, Ania. You are so right: we should find this energy to support our friends and business partners whenever they need it, too. I personally feel blessed with my family and friends as they do provide me with all the support I look for when times are tough. I wish everyone had the same opportunity 🙂 Have a wonderful day!
