Even when times are tough, I know I can make it.
I realize life has ups and downs. When things are wonderful and everything goes smoothly, I am pleased. I enjoy those experiences as much as I can. Yet, I also recognize that challenging times happen.
When life makes a turn and I see myself approaching a trying situation, I know I am going to make my way through it. My self-confidence pushes me forward. I believe I can do whatever life requires. I can weather any storm.
I work to re-shape challenging events as minor events. I might say, “Here’s a bump in the road; I can tolerate it” or “This is my next mountain; I can climb it.” I remind myself about the unknown obstacles that life brings.
The dichotomy of living is that in order to truly connect with and experience the high and momentous times, I must be successful in navigating my way through the challenging circumstances and situations that appear before me. In essence, moving through the lows enables me to truly feel the highs.
I understand the incredible necessity of both types of experiences. It is for this reason and others that I am sure that even when times are tough, I can make it.
Today, I feel secure in the knowledge that I can handle any situation that life presents. I am optimistic about managing the tough times in life as they come along.
Questions for Self Reflection:

- If I have doubts about managing challenging situations, what are those doubts? Why is my confidence wavering in these situations?
- What can I do to increase my confidence and convince myself that I can make it through anything in life?
