How to have Courage to Change when life gives you lemons?

I’ve encountered many disappointments in life and one of the biggest lessons that I have learned was to have the courage to change.  To adapt to the new environment, to be open to new ideas, to think positive and most of all to be thankful to the universe and people that care about you.

We live in a world full of opportunities and sometimes we like planning everything out.  We like planning our future: career or family, thus many times appear difficulties along the way.  Not always we will get what we planned or worse what we want, because there will always be an obstacle or person who will prevent us from touching the perfection.  Yet there is a possibility for us to change – adapting to the society requirements.  So below I will list 5 Tips on how to have more courage to change and live a better life.

1# Be open to new ideas

When life gives you lemons, you should make a lemonade out of it, at least this is what the proverb says.  Don’t close yourself up and think that from now on everything is going to be worse, because it’s not.  In time you will see that what you’ve wanted before wasn’t the best idea for the future.  Being open-minded is a plus in life, if you can’t adapt to it, then better work harder to achieve this skill.

2# Accept & Learn from Rejection

Many times in life can happen unexpected things, this can cause us to give up or worse lose self-confidence.  Rejection does hurt, but it hurts more not trying to reanalyze things.  When things go wrong, we tend to forget about it and move on, yet I’ve read that smart people like to reanalyze every step and create a more powerful plan for the future.

3# Listen to people who support you

There is nothing wrong to hear out an opinion especially from people who care and support you.  Many times in life, we can bump into difficulties, but this obstacle shouldn’t make us weaker.  Instead of analyzing the problem only from one point of view, try also asking people whom you truly trust.  Believe me they can be a source of help too.

4# Ask help

Whenever arises a problem there will always be a solution to it.  Yet, I’ve understood during the years, that many of us are afraid seeking help.  We all are humans and make mistakes so the best solution is always to ask help.  Don’t be shy or avoid your friends, but try and communicate your problems in order for others to help you in return.

5# Move on

There will be times in life, where you would simply try and try to achieve a result, but it won’t simply work.  The best advice, that I’ve learned during the years was not to push things, unless it depends totally on you.  When you see that something won’t work even if you tried so many times, give up.  In time you will see that what you actually wanted, wasn’t the best choice for you.

Life can be messy, but also wonderful.  It can be filled with tears of joy or just sad ones.  It can make us angry and happy at the same time.  However, we always are responsible for our next move.  Even if we have a crisis we should learn how to maneuver it.  We should learn from our mistakes and most importantly we should have courage to change when a situation doesn’t go smooth. 

Live, take actions and believe in yourself.
