How To Overcome Feeling Defeated

How to overcome feeling defeated. I feel so defeated as I am writing this.  Working on some projects and everything seems to be going wrong. I just cannot get a break. I cannot let it remain this way. One of my biggest challenges is that I never feel that I am good enough. I am always second-guessing myself. I am writing this, thinking about all the grammatical errors I will be making, or that no one will like what I have to say.

Have you ever reached a place in your life where you felt stuck? Knowing there is so much more for you to do but you just cannot move forward. It feels like everything you do is ten times harder than the next person. You will see a classmate who seems to be very successful; that is not necessarily how it is. That perception makes you depressed. Thinking where did I go wrong, that is apart of our problem we are always comparing ourselves to others.

Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even. Muhammad Ali

True to me

We must always be true to ourselves. Do not watch others because we really do not know their story. Each of us has different circumstances to deal with in our lives. Fight for your dreams. That is just how life is, it is not a level playing field. It is a reality that some of us have to fight harder than others. Some persons know exactly what they want out of life from they were small and they went for it and got it, for others like myself, it is not easy for us to find our way. When we should be retiring we are still trying to figure out our purpose. Oh My!Let us fight for our dreams.

There will be days when you feel defeated, exhausted, and plain old beat-up by life’s whiplash. People you love will disappoint you – and you will disappoint them. You’ll probably struggle with some kind of mortal appetite. Some days it will feel as though the veil between Heaven and Earth is made of reinforced concrete. Sheri L. Dew

Taking Action

Take me, for example, It was a struggle to even start this blog. I have wanted to do this for the longest time but I always came up with a good excuse not to. Just started writing.  perfection is not always possible. It won’t be easy I know I will have to fight to do what I know I should do but I am willing to try.

I will never give up on my dreams…All of us will not finish the race at the same time, what matters is that we finish no matter how long it takes. Giving up is not an option, I must develop the fighting spirit.  Pray, listen to some motivational speakers, and try to be positive are some other ways of how to overcome feeling defeated. Don’t believe that even if you do all those things it will be easy to achieve your dreams. I prove it is not. Fight for what you want and you will achieve it. Never give up!!
