Sometimes in life we run into difficult days and times. Some days it just seems like everything is going bad all at once. You try to tell yourself that it’s just “one of those days, or weeks, or months” but bad things just keep happening. The old saying “when it rains it pours” seem to fit the bill. Your boss is on you, your clients are telling you no, everything seems to be going negative. Sound familiar?
Are you someone that just takes what life throws at you and shamefully accepts it or do you fight back? If you are like me, you don’t like when things don’t go your way. If you’re not happy about the way things are then maybe it’s time to do something about it! Maybe it’s time to turn things around! Time to fight back!
It all starts with a commitment to yourself! Let whatever you’re feeling, the anger, the hurt, and the disappointment, take hold in a positive way to move forward. When I was young and was having difficulties or facing challenging circumstances, my father would tell me to “get mad at it”. It was his way of telling me to dig deep inside and face the challenge head on. Well sometimes it takes some serious soul searching but if you can find the fortitude, the inner strength, that “fire” inside, you can make great things happen. Use that fire to your advantage. Channel these feelings towards whatever your problem or goal is. Really focus on what you want to accomplish and “SET FIRE TO THE RAIN”!
Yes you read it right! I said “Set Fire to the Rain”. Think about it for a minute? What did you visualize? What thoughts, feeling, or experiences come to mind? Forget about making lemonade out of lemons. I’m talking about some serious passion coming forward to change the situation. If you really focus and visualize it can be a very empowering concept! See yourself as you “Set Fire to the Rain” .
You can’t start a fire with out a spark so use whatever life throws at you as that spark. When you are feeling like life is pushing you down, dig deep inside to your inner fire. The fire inside that makes you who you are. Rise up and know that you can do it! Think of it as a rallying cry! A chance to rise up and be on top! Take action today and SET FIRE TO THE RAIN!
