When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going

by | Feb 15, 2017

We all know life never goes straight, positive and without any troubles. So how do we react when it does get tough?

There was a time when things in my life started to go ‘south’ and seriously wrong, I just gave up and gave into feeling sorry for myself. I also wondered why this happened to me, grabbing another chocolate bar (Swiss one of course!) and fed my inner ego, which was crying like a baby with self-pity.

Sounds familiar, right?! I can hear many of you go ‘ooohhh yeah’…. but what can you do ‘when the going gets tough’?! Here is my answer: the tough get going!!!

It has taken me a while to realise, understand and work on this, BUT once I got a grip on it the ‘OMG’ moment happened! Sure, there might be moments where things are really, really, really tough and sh** and it might take you longer to ‘get going’, but we all have this ability to work on our inner strength.

We all have this way of handling anything that comes our way. I am not saying that you can’t feel sorry for yourself, take a moment to just feel bad & miserable, however, don’t stay there and wallow in it. Get up and get moving. There is always something you can do to feel better, change and move forward.

How did I become of the ‘The tough get going’?! Self-discovery, learning, writing and most of all – not giving up, keeping positive and grateful!

It all starts with YOU, working on your inner ego and tools to ‘get going’ when it does get tough. And one part that ALWAYS helps me is, of course, music. There are so many songs that lift me up, give me strength and remind me that ‘When the going gets tough, the tough get going’!!

And of course this is one song that deserves a listen – it’s well worth it!!

Want to share your song?

I would love to hear what songs inspire & motivate you!
