Do you feel like you’ve always been in a chaotic situation where everything you do seems useless and nothing to be proud of?
Did you know that whatever happens, negative or not, and everything comes is your way, big or small, when you think that you’ve exerted effort in everything you do, you should always be proud of yourself for trying your best despite the uncertainty of results?
We all have down moments in life when everything doesn’t fall into place despite doing our best. That’s completely okay, because in the first place, life is not always about happiness, there should be a storm that will mold us into the best that we can be. Just like in a story or movie, the characters have to face several challenges or conflicts to be strong and brave enough to solve every problem.
For this article, I am going to instill in your mind the 5 things that we should be proud of.
Taking the first step, or simply starting to do something is mostly considered as the hardest part of a process. There are doubts and worries, thinking about several “what ifs” that hinder us to finish something. However, having courage and determination to start doing something that seems impossible at first is one of the things that we should be proud of. Many people are there, afraid to take the first step, but here you are, being strong and brave enough to begin the process even if you are not sure if the results will be good or not.
With that, don’t feel bad if ever that the outcomes didn’t conform to the effort you’ve exerted. Because in the first place, upon taking the first step, you already succeed in fighting against your doubts and fears.
Aside from growing physically, I know that most of us desire to grow holistically. Having this kind of mindset and doing everything to be the best version we can be is something we should be proud of. Even if the process to grow is so slow and seems like we are not moving forward, we should still be proud of ourselves for doing something to get there. Let’s always keep in mind that a progress, slow or fast, is still a progress no matter what happened.
Failure is one of the things that makes us feel devastated. But, taking it on the positive side, failures can be the best teacher as well because we got to learn an important lesson that will keep us far from doing the same mistakes again. Aside from making us strong, failure will also make us smart and wise enough to not be deceived and abused by problems in life. With that, every time we fail, let’s still be proud of ourselves because we got an opportunity to learn valuable lessons that we can’t just gain by being on the limelight of triumph.
When we always have the courage to move forward, every obstacle that comes in our way will be surpassed, and that’s one of the things we should be proud of. There are challenges in our life that are too hard to overcome. Those things that make us suffer in frustration and anxiety while thinking about the solutions to solve such problems. But, every time we got to surpass even the huge obstacles, we have this very satisfying feeling wherein despite the negativities we felt in the first place, here we are overcoming the problems that seems impossible to surpass at first.
Having an optimistic mindset despite the melancholic situation we are currently into, is one of the things we should be proud of ourselves, because after all those things we surpassed, we remain to have a positive mindset and thinks upon how far we’ve come. Sometimes, always looking at the road ahead of us is not enough, we should also look back to see how far we’ve come to realize that despite all these years of struggling to move forward, here we are, almost on the way to success.
There are so many things that we should be proud of. We just have to open our mind and heart on so many things and be aware of all the things we’ve done. No matter how tough life is, and no matter how difficult to handle life problems are, let’s always be proud of ourselves for giving our very best whatever the outcomes could be.
Being proud doesn’t mean we’re arrogant. So, there’s nothing to be shy of, because no matter how big or small our accomplishments are, we should always be proud of what we’ve done. Just be humble all the time, because humbleness is a perfect match to being proud.
