We wait for miracles, for a person to take our hand and guide us through the murky path into a much more fulfilling place. When we look for that guiding light outside of our own self, we make a grave mistake in thinking that light is anything or anybody else but our own selves. Let me explain.
Our life is made up of a series of events, and different people have different roles in those events. But it is pretty rare to find someone with you in all the phases of life. The one who does remain is you. So find that solace within yourself. Become that person who will guide you through every obstacle.
Working to boost our morale is imperative in bettering ourselves and taking the steps necessary to improve our routine.
Find the root cause
A way to boost your morale is to find the root cause of what hinders your ability to flourish. Sometimes you do not see the root problem or turn a blind eye. Nonetheless, you must take the initiative to find the problem and work towards untangling it.
Every person in the human race has and will go through innumerable tests and trials before finding peace. When you invest your time in seeing the obstacle standing in your way, you tackle it with more clarity. The hindrance may be hidden within crevices, but once you identify it, the journey towards betterment and prosperity starts immediately.
Taking measures to fix that problem
Identifying the problem is just the start of what boosts your morale. Actual progress comes in the shape of taking the steps necessary to eradicate that problem. Not fixing the issues that cause you to falter, will constantly nag you.
The measures you need to take to fix the problem and boost your morale depend on how much you want to get out of that rut. Talk to someone, find inspiration, make a new goal, or tell yourself that real progress is not letting your future be dictated by a force that is bent upon criticizing you.
You can grow, and every inch of you deserves to become better. The rule is to not let external factors such as peer pressure or even your own negative thoughts take control. Our life is limited to events, goals, and the people around us. Do you want to spend that life battling with your wavering confidence? Or do you want to stand up and take control of your life?
Do not go back to that dark place.
Once you get used to it, the dark place you have grown accustomed to living in becomes a great source of comfort. It is the only ‘normal’ thing that you know. You find running to that place easier and blocking the world out. But it also becomes a source of great dismay; it becomes an obstacle, a hindrance that leaves you stumbling in the race of life.
That dark place was comforting, but it was not your home. Your home resides in this world where possibilities are just a step away. To boost your morale and remain mindful, you must convince yourself of what you can do. That dark place hinders your progress and your chances to flourish. Uplifting your spirit can do wonders for you to achieve your goals and become the person you always needed. It is just a matter of convincing yourself to not find solace in that dark place you believed to be your home.
