Throughout life, we all experience some form of hardship or even multiple hardships. Experiencing these can be a blow to one’s sense of self, self-esteem as well as gauging their self-worth. When encountering these hardships, giving up is more comfortable than pushing ourselves to overcome the obstacles in our way. We are only human after all, and that is perfectly okay. You can be successful with the right mindset and ambition. Let’s talk about ways to overcome these hardships in your life.
Changing Your Mindset
The first step to overcoming hardships and obstacles in your life is to change your mindset from “can’t” or “won’t” to “will” and “can.” It will difficult at first because this requires continuously telling yourself to be positive and see the light at the end of the tunnel. Changing how you think can be done in several ways; daily positive affirmations, encouraging mantras, prioritizing daily tasks and accomplishing one at a time, and persevering by not allowing yourself to do anything less than what is needed to overcome that hurdle in your path. Always remind yourself of the end-goal, the accomplishment of your dream and believe in yourself.

Thriving on Determination
A determination has a known definition of a “firmness of purpose” which means that one has the grit, tenacity, and ability to push through the hurdles in our paths to overcome those obstacles. This is the second step to being successful and overcoming whatever is blocking you from doing so. This step includes having the determination in yourself to push through with positive thinking, and not giving up on yourself or your dreams.
Grit and Tenacity
These are two significant components to overcoming obstacles in your life by way of hard work and keeping a firm grip on your ideal outcome. Grit is defined as “courage and resolve, the strength of character.” Find what motivates you to have the courage to accomplish your goal, whether it’s family, promotion, a lifelong dream, bucket list or whatever the case may be, let that be the foundation in your path to success.
Tenacity has a known definition of “the quality of being very determined” which is another way of holding fast to your purpose and overcoming any obstacles in your life. These two components combined create a recipe that in conjunction with determination, the possibility of reaching your goal and succeeding is highly probable.
Belief in Yourself
Believing in your abilities and having self-love are vital components in your path to success. It’s easier to criticize ourselves and claim defeat rather than push through and accomplish what you initially set out to do. With changing your mindset, and never doubting your capabilities to succeed in life, anything is possible. Believing in yourself will take work, and it’s okay to admit needing help because that does not make you weaker or unable to do what others can. We are only human after all, and helping each other succeed is the best part of what makes us human.
