Life can be hard sometimes. No matter who you are or what your circumstances, we all encounter tough times.
During times when life is tough, you may need a little push to give you more energy to move forward, to move past the failures and be ready for the challenges that life throws your way.
Here are some of the best motivational mantras that will give you hope and inspiration when life is tough.
1) The best is yet to come.
Our present isn’t our future. The only fundamental law in nature is change. If things aren’t looking good now, don’t worry! It will change. Just hold yourself up and breathe.
2) Bad things can lead to good things.
It’s our perception that create negative realities in our head. The truth is, the universe is indifferent. You never know what good can come out of a bad experience.
3) Keep moving
Life moves on. If you feel like your in a bad relationship, move. If you hate your job, quit. You do have choices. Sometimes it just takes courage to accept that you’re not happy and move.
4) Let go of the past
No matter how bad the past may have been, it is still an illusion. Now is all that exists. If you keep thinking about the past and regretting things, you will never be able to move on and live in the present moment. Learn the lessons from the past and start again.
5) It’s probably not meant for you.
No matter how much hard work you put in, you can’t control everything. Sometimes acceptance is necessary in life because everything won’t turn out the way you want it to be. Move on and realize that there are always other opportunities waiting for you.
6) Remember who you are.
Our lives get so busy, we often forget who we truly are. Sometimes you need to take a break to gather your thoughts and clear your mind.
7) Mingle with the young.
We think we’re so rational and practical but we often misinterpret the simplicity of life. Life is about having fun and making the most of the present moment.
You don’t need arguments or pointless conversations. We can often learn more by listening to understand, than by listening to reply.
9) Listen to your heart.
10) No need to figure out everything.
So many of us don’t progress in life because the perfect opportunity doesn’t present itself. The truth is , nothing is ever perfect. Sometimes you just need to move on, no matter if it isn’t perfect.
11) Don’t stop believing.
Hope is the most powerful emotion we have. If we aren’t optimistic that the future will be better, then it likely won’t be. Give yourself hope that things will change for the better, they will!
