There are times in your life when you feel alone. You try to look for someone to encourage you, but it seems that no one can understand you. How can you go through life with that condition?

Do Not Overthink

“I should’ve not told that to her.”

“I should have talked to my boss before pursuing the project.”

Repeating your mistakes and failures in your mind can’t help you to move on. Instead, you will just feel more depressed and demotivated.

If she has hated you for telling her that you don’t like her attitude, then let her hate you. Don’t lower your standard. Don’t compromise your values. No two individuals are the same in the first place.

If your company lost investment because of your decision, let this failure become a part of your learning. Don’t be afraid to commit mistakes. Continue to develop plans and strategies to help you achieve your expected success.

The Minds Journal says, “There is nothing in this world that can trouble you as much as your own thoughts.” So, do not let overthinking control you. Move on and take the next step.

Claim That You Are Born to Win

There is no way to think that you are born for nothing. You are born to win. You are born to be the strength of your family and friends.

You’ll never know you’re good at sales if you haven’t discovered that your writing goes nowhere. If you are not born to win as a writer, go and break a leg in sales and marketing.

Find where you are good at instead of belittling yourself and being so depressed that you are not good enough.

Zig Ziglar utters, “You were born to win but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.”

Humble Yourself and PRAY

Sometimes, we need to accept that there are things that we can’t do because we don’t have the abilities or we don’t control them. For example, you can’t decide if an interviewer will accept or reject you. You can’t do anything about that; you can’t manipulate someone’s emotions and decisions.

When you feel so weak that you can’t move toward reaching your goal and you feel alone, you can bow your knees and ask for help from above. Prayer is the best weapon that we can have to stand strong even if it seems that no one can help.


When I was just sixteen years old and a freshman in Bible College, I felt so insignificant. However, I found a motivational quotation that struck me at that time.

I’ve written that line on the first page of my Bible to remind me that “Quitting is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.” We are born with struggles, but they will not last. If you quit, then that’s the end of everything.
