Facing difficulties in life is very common, they are simply a part of everyday life but sometimes we are unable to bear there load, there are moments when we are mentally too weak to deal with them.

A person who is able to see things in positive light, will definitely be able to change something, will get enough energy to overcome from mental anguish and pain which will give enough energy to feel a bit relaxed, find a clue to overcome these difficulties of life.
1.If there is no solution, there must be some reason behind it :
At such times when we make all possible efforts, yet nothing seems to work, we can think about this. We can call it a destiny (those who get easily perturbed or may have developed a negative thinking in such circumstances) or we can also think of it as a signal for change.
We may have seen news from stock and forex markets, when there is a rise i.e., an uptrend they start worrying about a fall and when there is a fall i.e., a downtrend, they look for signals of reversal or uptrend. Every investor in a stock market knows that a great uptrend is only possible after a great downtrend and when there is an uptrend, there is immense possibility of a downtrend. There cannot be any up if there are no downs.
2. Circumstances Change Continuously :
May be today we are in extreme pain and anguish but we can look back at our own life, is it for the first time that we are facing this. Did we have had enjoyed some good time after and before that bad time. Circumstances keep changing, things keep moving just like day and night. Life is full of shades, things move in a cycle again and again. Only way to succeed in life is to keep calm during difficult times, keeping our emotions under control so that we don’t have to face more difficulties, we do not make the situation even worse. Those who do not understand this develop symptoms of depression and if they still don’t try to understand this universal fact they are likely to seek counselings.
3. Something Exists Over & Above Everything :
Sometimes it’s better to leave things as they are without worrying about them. There is something that exists over and above everything, we can call it anything nature, god, higher level energy etc. etc. No one can deny existence of some other power, which is often realized to be playing its role.
When we cannot do anything, we get exhausted with our attempts, we can leave it for some time on that external force to see what it’s trying to do.
It doesn’t mean that we should frequently leave our work after few attempts, we must try our best to make things work. Only when we get mentally frustrated, over stressed, feel extreme anguish and pain we should try this trick in order to avoid any worse circumstance, resulting from these mental problems.
There is a theory of “Karma Yoga”, which teaches us to do our best, without actually worrying about the results i.e. work without getting attached to fruit of actions. If we can practice this in everyday life, we can easily enjoy life, its inlying happiness as we’ll enjoy our work, our duties.
4. We too Have the Responsibility :
Things do not take place on its own, we actually initiate an action. Whatever happens, happens only when it was not well attended, may be the present circumstances have to do something with it. If we can realize this even now, we can still look ahead at future with new hope based on our own determination to prove ourself. When it is a matter of finance, career and stresses resulting from them, then we may have taken some wrong decision, misunderstood some situation, tried a wrong approach and if we can realize our mistake, we can easily overcome mental anguish, pain and stress. Nothing is wrong in admitting a mistake then bearing its pain as admission will help us to work wholeheartedly in future. It will help us to collect and use all our energy with determination to get things right in future.
5. Nothing Is Impossible :
What is possible and what is impossible is based on our own views in life, our personal philosophy of life, our personal belief system and attitude towards life. Have you read Reply’s Book “Believe It or Not” which contain unbelievable, amazing incidents that took place and fact that exist on this planet.
We actually draw a circle around our own life and think that anything that lies or exists within this circle is possible for us while things that seems to be outside this circle are thought to be something impossible to achieve. Parameter of our circle keeps changing with our experience, education and development of thoughts. Good times increase this parameter while bad times decrease this considerably.
Even the word Impossible contains I’m Possible which says what it means and can be used to overcome problems and difficulties of life using a positive attitude and right thinking.
