Below are five ways to break through difficult situations. By all means they are not the only five ways, but they will give you a good foundation.

1. Evaluate if you can do anything to make the situation better:

It is important to take a look at the situation and evaluate if there is anything that you can do to make it better. Are there any steps that you can take to turn your obstacle into an opportunity? Look at the things that you can do to conquer the difficult situation. It is important for you to conquer the obstacles of life, and not let them conquer you.

2. Seek the support of others:

When you are faced with a difficult situation it is important to have a strong support system. Talk to those that you are close to and seek support. Going through things alone can cause discouragement and a feeling of being isolated. Those things can make the situation even more challenging to face. It can be empowering to have others in your corner. That can inspire, encourage and motivate you.

3. Don’t quit:

It is very easy to want to give up on your dreams or goals when you are faced with a difficult situation. But that is not the time to quit. It is the time to persevere. Unfortunately we are all faced with challenges, but you must refuse to give up. You have to decide in your mind that quitting is not an option.

4. Lean on your faith:

Remember that God is there with you during the storms of life. Many times you may not feel like he is there, but he is. He will never leave or forsake you. So it is important to lean on your faith during any difficult situation. There are many things that life presents to us that are just too hard for us to carry on our own. That is why it is important to lean on your faith, and know that God will help you through any difficult situation you are faced with. He is greater than any challenge you face.

5. Think back for strength:

Think back to any other difficult situations that you have been faced with. How did you deal with them? What was the outcome? Did you give up or persevere? Sometimes we have to reflect on things that we have been through before in our lives. The fact that we made it through other difficult situations can provide us with strength in knowing, that we can make it through other challenging things, that life presents to us.
