What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
How many times have you heard this?
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, Do you believe it?
Is this saying typical of the times we are living in?
All these questions and we haven't even got one paragraph in.
How can we use sayings to motivate us?
Oh look another question. I hope you are taking note of all these questions because there will be a test at the end of this hub.
Is the saying ' what doesn't kill you makes you stronger' motivating to you or is it more of a comfort? Read on to find out the real truth.
OK enough of the questions let's try to answer some.
I believe there is some truth in the question WDKYMYS. For me it is part of a mechanism which allows me to rationalise in certain situations and is a coping mechanism to be able to say......phew that was tough but it wasn't so bad because I am still here in one piece. Thank god. It sort of allows you to take a step back and be able to look at the situation and be thankful that all the world could throw at you has not beaten you.You are still in the daily fight. It is a daily fight in the real world. Don't you agree for the everyday hard working person it is a daily fight? Oops sorry another question.
With all the pressure that modern society has to put on us it is no wonder that we need something to hold onto. Sayings, whether motivational or not, are a way of helping us cope with those daily pressures of modern life.
If you have a favourite saying that motivates you ,often, as you say it to yourself it moves you forward as you get the picture in your mind. The more clear it becomes the more it moves you.
I am sure that we were not put on this earth to struggle all our lives,but, we do make life difficult for ourselves. The decisions we make on a daily basis, even though we do not always realise it can have an effect on the rest of our lives. We make some decisions on the spur of the moment and do not realise what long lasting effect this is going to have on us. I should know I have made some shocking decisions in the past. On the other hand I have also made some good ones. I am not so sure which one wins though. If only I had taken more time over the bad decisions. But guess what?......What doesn't kill you makes you stronger .
As I get older I think I am beginning to realise that you have to go through and get past a lot of bad things in order to get to the good. If you are going through a bad time at the moment you have to dig in, grit your teeth and be couragious everyday until you can see light at the end of the tunnel.You have to just keep on keeping on. Do something no matter how small a step it is, so long as you do something to propel yourself forward.
This,believe it or not, makes you feel as though you are doing something to improve your situation. Action in it's purest form is the best possible course you can take.
At this point I feel I should be putting in some thought provoking quote. I would but I just cannot think of a suitable one.
There is a chance here that I could go off on a tangent because as I write this I have a thousand and one thoughts whirring round my head and I am writing it as fast as I can to get it all down. I apologise if some of this article appears a bit random and rambles on.
It is a massive subject and I want to give it justice as I feel compelled to help as many people as I can through this article.
To get what you want you have to do what?
To get what you want you have to just help enough people to get what they want. Simple.
When you take the focus off yourself and direct it towards helping other people you automatically begin to get what you want. Don't ask me why but I am sure it is a universal fact. It's like the old saying 'What goes around comes around'. This is usually said when you do something bad to another person. It works both ways though. If you are helping people,enough people, this saying will prove itself to be true. Do good and good will be done to you. Do bad and bad will be done to you. If everybody did good to each other, what a world this would be. On hub pages we can make a difference I am sure.
