We all have our responsibilities, goals and dreams — that’s why we need to stay motivated all the way to achieve all of them. But sometimes, we cannot control some things. Sometimes, we encounter distractions, negativity and challenges that seem to destroy our hope. Here are some of the ways that will make you more motivated through hard times.
Have a positive attitude towards distractions – Think of how blessed you are so you won’t have time for distractions and negativity.
2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
Focus on your goals – Whenever you’re facing hard times, learn to focus on your goal. Always think of why you are keeping on moving, why you are sacrificing and striving. Go after what you want and what makes you happy.
Psalm 138:7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life. You stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes; with your right hand you save me.
Accept that you cannot control everything – Some things are within your control, but some are not; so do not worry about that, rather, accept it and go through another way or make your plan B until you get what you want. Do not let these things paralyze you, you need to get over it and strive hard until you get victory!
Always remember that we have God – Always include God in the picture. All of your plans, endorse it to Him and let God do His will in your life. So whenever you’re lost and don’t know what you will do, just talk to God and allow the Spirit to control you and everything will be alright.
Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
