Finding Times Tough? How to Take Charge Today and Get a Happy Life (Part 1 of 7)

What if tough times were a blessing?

No way!

Oh yes, they certainly can be.

Okay, at worst let’s say it’s a mixed blessing, but again it’s about
what you think you get‘.

Here’s why they’re a blessing.

Tough times can motivate you to try new ideas and be open to change.

They take you to a cross roads and urge you to open to new ideas – to read articles such as this one.

And that’s great because it means you’re motivated to consider a better life.

Often that’s all you need to actually get one.

“With ordinary talent and extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable.”

Thomas Fowell Buxton

(Born in Essex, a strong advocate for the abolition of slavery in the British Colonies, 1786-1845)

This is Part 1 of a 7-Part Series “Are You Finding Times Tough?”

This series of 7 articles returns the power to you, where it belongs.

Once you’ve read these articles you can decide which way you go – up to your true potential or down to more despair.

How to Take Charge of Your Life in Tough Times and Get a Happy Life

However hard life may seem, decide you’re going to deal with it and not be a victim.

A victim waits in hope for life to become different.

Most of us, both men and women no matter how seemingly strong or successful, play the victim game at some stage.

Yes, even big burly men and tough career women.

Being a victim does have benefits. Very short-term benefits.

You get attention and others feel sorry for you.

All well and good, except that over time being a victim destroys your life.

When I say don’t be a victim, I’m not saying keep a stiff upper lip or suffer in silence either.

I’m saying that a victim is someone who is stuck and dependent on others.

If you’d like an interesting, exciting and happy life, it’s essential you stand up and act toward changing your situation.

This can seem like hard work – in some ways it is.

But no-one can live your life for you or make you happy, and doing this for yourself is hugely rewarding and satisfying.

There is something thrilling in taking charge. Something you’ll only discover once you try it.

If you don’t know what action to take or how to take it, these 7 articles show you how.

The Simplest Way to Take Action

A simple way to take action is to say the following words with intention and clearly, slowly and deliberately:

“I am in charge of my life, I decide my future… I change my future”

Once you do that (with intention and enthusiasm!) you already move into a happier life; it is as simple as that.

Find out why in “Just Like That!” You immediately start to gain confidence that you can do this and your life starts to change before your eyes.

If it is your intention to have a better life (and not wallow in self-pity!) you instantly turn towards having that.

You could start by choosing to stop reading for a moment and say that sentence slowly three times with absolute focus. Then put that sentence in a prominent place.

Do You Want to Overcome Tough Times Forever?

To do so, it is vital to understand the following three keys:

1) Why only you can change the life you’re living and how to do it

2) Why it’s essential to conquer the victim within you to get a happy life

3) How to conquer the victim and get immediate rewards, including greater confidence

These three vital points are covered in detail in “How to Get Anything You Want – Just Like That!”.

So Remember…

Overcome the temptation to feel sorry for yourself.

Deciding what you want and taking charge may seem at odds with your natural tendencies – it may seem too much effort and boring.

I know, sometimes it seems easier to feel sorry for yourself. However if you choose that path you’ll go in one direction and that’s down.

Instead, imagine having the motivation you need today to go up to your true potential.

Be stronger than your body and take control of yourself to get the life you want.

You’ll be happier and also healthier.
