When you come face-to-face with a condition such as breast cancer, it is never easy. Here, you have only two choices–you either give up, or you roll up your sleeves and fight like hell.
Your mindset is powerful. If you continue to think you can beat this, then you will. It starts with the way you see it. It is not the end of the road if you refuse to accept it as the end of the road.
There are days you will feel like you are at the end of the rope and there is no more room. As Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Go ahead, tie a knot and hang on.” Make it clear to yourself and everyone around you that you are not giving up no matter what. This is not about how you feel or the pain– it is about defining your reality with strength from within.
Take the battle to a whole new level with a mindset that is stronger than the medical condition. Though cancer may have part of your body, as long as it does not have your mind, you are winning the war.
Do Not Give Up
Most of us will never know how strong we are until we have no other choice than to be strong. You do not know how far you can go until you have made up your mind to go all the way. As long as you keep your mind strong, you are not going down– you will remain a survivor.
You may wonder, “How long is this going to last?” or “How long am I going to be expected to hang on?” See, your wait is not forever. Your battle is not going to rage eternally, keep the faith and you will see your recovery in no time. Your concern should always be how to stay positive and how to keep your mind empowered. If you can do this, your part is done. Just sit back and watch your strength return and health restore.
As a form of precaution, make sure that the people around you do not give up either. They also need to see that you are not giving up–and brace themselves to fight this with you. We know you are a survivor, we know you are winning.
No matter how tough it gets, stay strong–you are beating it.
Do you trust yourself? Most of us don't ask that question too often as we naturally tend to think that we all do. What many of us don't realize is that your level of self-trust can be different about different things. You may trust your instincts and yourself in some things, like driving your car or caring for pets, for example. But what about when it comes to making big commitments or decisions? Do you trust your intuition and reasoning to make decisions that are actually yours and makeYOU happy and not someone else?
No matter how you handled yesterday, there is nothing you can do about it now. Whatever tomorrow has to offer has yet to be unveiled – and you have no control over it. The only time you can control is NOW – so bring your A-GAME and make the best of it.
You may think you can just do it tomorrow – but tomorrow is a myth because there is always a tomorrow. If you are not going to do it now, then you may never actually get around to doing it. Make the best of the now and get right to what you planned to do.
