When we are down and seemingly out, when we go through what looks like a never-ending crisis, it’s good to remind ourselves that this too shall pass. Good times will come. It’s important to retain a positive attitude, an attitude that says things will get better.

When due to whatever reasons, you are down and out — remember these Golden Rules. They may help you.

    1. Start believing in yourself, the world will automatically believe you.

    2. Have faith in your faith and doubt your doubts.

    3. Stick to the fight when you are hardest hit — It’s when things get worse that you mustn’t quit!

    4. Don’t give up when you still have something to give, nothing is really over….until the moment you stop trying.

    5. There is only one person who is capable of setting limits to your growth: it is YOU.”

    6. Nothing is IMPOSSIBLE, because impossible itself says, “I’M POSSIBLE”.

    7. Tough times never last, but tough people do.

    8. Failure doesn’t mean we are a failure….it does mean we haven’t succeeded yet.

    9. Failure doesn’t mean GOD has abandoned us….it does mean GOD has a better idea!

    10. Failure doesn’t mean we should give up….it does mean we must try harder.

    11. Keep on keeping on, no matter how hard the going may be.
