Life is Hard, U can make it Better.

Everybody wants to be happy in Life. Isn't it?.
Yes.. we all want to live a happy Life. we all want to lead a successfull life. we want to have a great job or an successfull Business. we want to be married to Mr. Right or Mrs. Perfect. we want to have a friends that stick by us whether rain or storm. We all desire to live and worryless life. but, is it possible..?
we have a strong desire that all our problems just disappear as if they were never there. But, is it possible..?

Everybody wishes for a Good Life. But what is this terminology "Good Life" actually means.? Everybody has different perspective regarding Good Life. For one person a good life may be just having three meals a day and a roof over their head. For another, it may be having a huge mansion and a couple of million dollars in the bank. Some are happy being themselves, some wants to have all luxuries and comforts.

Though everybody have their own point of view's regarding a Good and a happy Life, perhaps, there is one Common point of view regarding Good Life, and that it " A STRESS FREE LIFE ". you want that all the comforts and luxuries you want to enjoy, must come to you by easy work. You don't want to work so hard or to Struggle much to enjoy your life. This is common human expectation. yeah-nobody wants to struggle.

Unfortunately, that is also what may be stopping you from having that great life.
The thought of all that work, all that planning, overcoming hurdles and resistance is enough to make a lot of people give up before they even start. It can all seem too overwhelming, and for many it all just doesn’t seem be worth it. It’s like being drained of energy just at the thought of running a marathon. Before you are even at the starting line the thought of all that running just scares you and tires you so much mentally you just decide not to go for it. It’s just too hard.

Once i read a novel, "The Roads Less Travelled"- by M. Scott Peck. The first Sentence in the book is,

Now, if you pick up a book and the first thing it tells you is “life is difficult” you may just think “is this book going to get reassuring and encouraging after such a start?

But, as Peck goes on to explain, once you accept that life is hard, it no longer becomes an issue that it’s difficult.

He says:
“Once we know that life is difficult- once we truly understand and accept it - then life is no longer difficult.”

In Life, you will have difficulties getting any thing you want in life. It is very rare to achieve anything in life, without putting any efforts. Only if you win a lottery, you can achieve everything without any effort, but actually that was also not free. you have to put off your laziness to rush to the store to buy the lottery ticket.

Life Is Hard- you will not achieve anything without putting any sincere efforts to really gain anything. 

If you are working, your boss may not be the nicest person of the world. you have to face challenges and tackle yourself in each and every situations to prove your skills and abilities.

If you are an Enterpreneur, running a business is not just that much easy. For successfull Business enterprise to be run, lots of struggle are there, and you have to overcome all barriers. Bringing a capital to start a business is not an easy task, but you have to do- just for one word-"SUCCESS"

You just have to accept that Life Is Hard. Once you do, you will feel better about all the circumstances. you will then not think about the hard situation, but instead, you will now think about the solutions to defeat the situation.
Now, you will be ready to handle all the situation with smooth ease.

You will no longer beat yourself up about how bad things are or how you are not doing so well in one area or another. You will realise that you are only human. You make mistakes just like everybody else. You are not perfect just like everybody else.
But don’t stop there. Accepting that life is hard does not mean that you accept every circumstance and simply go with the flow. You can make your Life Better.

See, evey coin has two sides, if one is bad, definately another has to be good. 
If on one side, Harsh words like, 'Life Is Hard' is written, just Twist the coin and see... On the Other side, the most Powerful words are written,  

That is one of the beautiful things about life. You can make your life better. You have total responsibility for what you do and how you respond to the fact that life is hard. 

As the now cliché saying goes:

“If life hands you lemons, make lemonade.”

Accepting that life is hard comes with accepting that you have the responsibility to make it better. Not only do you have the responsibility to make it better, you have the ability and the power to make it better.

You see, the only person you have any control over is yourself. You cannot change other people.

“You always have choices”

No matter what situation you are in, you have a choice. No matter how bad things are, you have a choice. No matter what you think you can or cannot do, you have a choice.

Now it may not be an easy choice, by any means. It may be a very difficult choice and the road you decide to take may be a tough one. It may push you way out of your comfort zone. It may mean that in the initial period your life may get even harder than it already is. 
But it is a choice nonetheless.

A lot of times you will actually find that the choices are not as hard as you thought they were. You may just have shut off your mind from seeing those choices and possibilities because you thought you had no choice.
Once you become open to the idea that you are responsible for your life and that you have choices, you will find that you are no longer stuck just because life is hard.

At that point, life is still hard, but you have the final say. Your life becomes more meaningful and purposeful.
