Turn Life’s Test into Life’s Best in 5 Steps ANYONE Can Take

One of my mentors once said that our goals and dreams will be tested for authenticity. Meaning that life will present you with specific challenges to make sure that you truly want what you say you want. You can meet and overcome those challenges, or you can give up and let them defeat you.

Life in itself is no different.

There will be situations in your life that you have no idea how to handle or know how you’re going to get through it.

In situations like this, which can be referred to as Life’s tests, you will discover the real you. You will figure exactly who you are when life tests who you are on the inside.

In this post, I’ll be discussing five (5) steps you can take to turn Life’s tests into Life’s best. In other words, how to show up and make the most out of any obstacle life puts in your way.

1. Believe

Having belief in yourself and your ability to handle whatever may be thrown your way goes a long way in turning around any negative situation. Your whole life won’t be determined by your current situation. Grow through what you’re going through. 

2. Change the way you see things

How you see things is everything. Many times, it’s not what’s happening to us, but rather our perspective on what’s happening that determines the outcome. It may not feel like it while you’re going through it, but try to look at the situation as an opportunity. There’s an opportunity for something extraordinary to come out of even the worst circumstances.

3. Keep moving forward and trust yourself

Keep moving forward no matter what. The only way to get to any destination is one step at a time. When you’re down, it’s not always easy to get back up. Especially if you’re like me, and you’ve been knocked down more times than you can count. Trust yourself. Be patient with yourself. Believe in your ability to figure it out.

4. Think positively

Thinking positively about every situation is difficult for even the most positive person. Trust me, I know! But remember, if you focus your energy on the negatives, it definitely won’t improve the situation or make you feel better. So, why not choose to find the positive in the situation. Now, that positive won’t always be apparent, but trust me, it’s there. Within every negative situation, there is the seed of an opportunity for an equivalent positive one.

5. Harness the Power Within You

For you to get the motivation to believe that you will find a way out of the situation you are in, there must be a source of power from within. That power will give you the needed peace and wisdom to handle things and know that nothing can stop you from getting to your destination. This power gives you confidence and strength to believe that you can get through anything that life throws at you.

The most important thing to remember is that you always have a choice. You may not always have the choices that you want, but the way you choose to look at a given situation and what you choose to do about it is always up to you. If you can take these 5 steps, they will help you turn life tests into life’s best, and through these tests, you become wiser, better, stronger, and more resilient.
