Conquering The Struggles of Life


The journey of life is amazing but it does present struggles throughout it!  These struggles come unexpected, will knock us off our feet, and will have us wanting to give up and throw in the towel as a method of escape.  We have financial struggles, relationship struggles (in its variety of forms), health struggles, spiritual struggles, and even struggles within ourselves that we constantly battle with.

There are moments when we question God and ask Him why do we have to struggle so much and for how long?  What did we do to deserve the struggles when we appear to be better than some of the worst with our character and actions? What do we do? Where do we go from here?

The harder we try to come out of the rut(s), the deeper we seem to fall in them.  When we seem to rise above our struggles, it only lasts temporarily.  We have no sustainability and no way of escape as it appears that our struggles are constantly attacking us in full force.  These attacks are so intense that it feels like the shake of a powerful earthquake.  We are faced with how to conquer these struggles of life.

So now we start to ponder, ask questions, and try to formulate a plan that in which conquering is the center of.

We first must began to evaluate our struggles to see what can feasibly be done to address them.  We must then address them head on! Sometimes this hurts because it brings out the truth of the matter, especially, when it concerns those familiar people, places, and things that we have become accustomed to dealing with.  Next, we must formulate a realistic and workable plan that will work directly towards those people, places, and things that we are struggling to overcome.  We must be real with ourselves and face all necessary realities. If we fail to do so, we are setting ourselves up to fail becoming overcomers of life’s struggles.  Finally, we must revisit, reevaluate, and make any amendments to our plan.  This will sometimes entail the identification of new causes and people that negatively affect and present as a struggle obstacle.  Be mindful that as part of this process, we may fall and even seem to hit a brick wall but we must not lay dormant and refuse to rise up!

The most important part of any struggle is the rising up after the fall! Each time we rise with more power and strength to conquer life’s struggles.  In spite of the obstacles that life brings to us and during these times, we can’t seem to see beyond our circumstances, we must remain steadfast! It is then and only then that we are actively “Conquering Life’s Struggles”!

I believe in being able to be motivated through positive speaking and inspirational quotations. We only get a chance at life once and it is totally up to us to determine how uplifting and fulfilling it will be. I am a natural born motivator and encourager and it brings me much joy by making and seeing others happy by even the smallest act of kindness rather it be through actions, words, or simply a heart warming smile. Inspire Yourself will encourage one to do just that as opposed to waiting on others to do it. This is a great experience and my goal is to reach everyone without any limitations to help make a positive difference in the lives of others through my inspirational writings that comes from my God given gift to write it from my heart.

  1. Sometimes when we face life struggles, in order to conquer our struggles, we must definitely be real within ourselves. We must face our truths, evaluate how long we have been hopeful that things will change, and how long we have dealt with these struggles.

    Once we begin to stop kidding ourselves and learn to let go of things and people that are not good for us, then we can began to heal and conquer our struggles head on. Sometimes it hurts and takes a long time to face the truth. We are the only ones who can make changes in our lives. We must ask ourselves, “Are we accomplishing anything by staying in limbo?” If your answer is no, then you know it is time to make a change.

    Do not ever give up. We are all winners and simply have to know when to let go and let God. We must not let people and things stunt our growth. There is light at the end of the rainbow.
