How to keep going, when the going gets tough?

Again, picked this from an old diary of mine. These are gems I tell you.

  1. Have fun and laugh. Connect to other like minded and positive people. Make calls or write to an old friend.
  2. Indulge yourself. Try being extra kind to yourself when you are stuck. Try giving yourself a reward or a bribe. Take yourself to a movie in the middle of the day. Call in sick to work for the day so you can pamper yourself and recharge your batteries. Schedule a massage.
  3. Start a victory log. Anytime you receive praise, put it somewhere or in a book you create specifically for this purpose. Everyone needs a little "pick me up". every now and then and reading about your accomplishments and how people have praised you and your work is guaranteed to make you feel better.
  4. Make an accomplishment list for yourself. This simple gesture and reflection may give you that extra boost of energy you need to move through your current challenge.
  5. Try an attitude of gratitude. Take a moment to see what is going well about the project you are working on. See what is in your life, rather than focusing on what is missing or lacking.
  6. There is immense satisfaction in taking action that creates a direct result ie. result oriented action.
  7. Do something for someone else. Random acts of kindness can not only help others, but can help you too. The key here is to give with an open hand and heart and not out of a sense of the duty or 'should'.
  8. Focus on the process, not the end result. You'll have a marvellous future if you live well in today.
  9. And one of the favourite ways of getting unstuck come from the comedian Miltion Berle: "If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door".
