DailyMorningCoffee is pleased to invite Mr. Farouk Radwan as a Guest Writer with this article.
Sometimes things go wrong and we find ourselves feeling really down.
During these moments many of us start wishing that someone comes and saves us or helps us with our problems
How many times you felt like you wanted to be saved?
And how many times no one did?
During these tough moments your thoughts might be clouded by the emotional pain you are experiencing and as a result you might not notice an extremely important fact which is that you are the only one who can save himself!
Do you want to know who is your savior?
Just take a look at the mirror!
The law of cause and effect
The law of cause and effect states that: if you kept doing the same things you do everyday you will keep getting the same results you always get. Albert Einstein, the famous scientist, said that insanity is doing the same thing everyday then expecting a different result.
If you feel like your life is falling apart or if you are not satisfied with your life then you must get up and change something! I know it might be hard to pull yourself up while you are down but just think about it, you are the only one who can make these changes and you are the only one who can change your life to the better.
Sadly movies have taught us many incorrect things about life. Usually in the movie you see the hero stuck with a big problem then suddenly the Wiseman appears and guides him to the correct thing. In real life this wise man usually never appears!
Because just as you are the hero of your life you are that wise man as well!
You are that white knight you are waiting for!!
How to save yourself and improve your life right now
Here is how to get out of your bad mood and start improving your life:
1) Go to the nearest mirror and take a look: Go to the nearest mirror , take a look and say out loud “This person in the mirror is the only one who can save me”
2) Find out what you dislike about your life: Certainly you are feeling down for a reason whether it’s a conscious or unconscious one. Take your time to find out why exactly you are not feeling ok and once you manage to find the things that are bothering you write them down.
3) Make a plan: Start writing a plan that has the goals of changing those things you dislike about your life. Some things will be in your hand while others might be out of your hands. Start with the ones you can change and ask God to help you with the ones that you can’t change.
4) Commit to the plan or else…. If you don’t commit to the plan nothing will change and your bad mood will remain the same.
This is how to change your life for the better.

Self evaluation and appreciation is important and can take us a long way. I love how you mention looking into a mirror. But what happens is people end up judging too much rather than appreciating for what they are.
Hajra – there are several other articles about self evaluation that I have read. Each one comes back with saying how important it is to hold back and take a look at oneself before giving up or trying a new idea.
Somehow I feel those are not practical, but still can never stop pondering over them and giving them more thought every time.
Its all about maintaing balance Hajra
thanks for your comment 🙂
Hi Praveen and Farouk, This article reminds me of Michael Jackson’s Man in the Mirror, one of my favorite songs. It’s so true, people often have excuses as to why their lives are a mess but the problem is really them.
Taking responsibility for your own life is a crucial step in making it better.
Thanks so much for having Farouk over here at your place, Praveen!
thanks Carolyn for your comment
happy to see you here 🙂
Hi Carolyn – Thanks for stopping by and it was my pleasure to have published Farouk on my blog.
He has indeed done a great job at writing this and explaining how to lead our lives better. And I love that song as well.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Motivational post Farouk and nice to see you here!
Our life sure is full of twists and turns and somehow we are responsible for a major part of our lives or the problems we face, though none of us are willing to admit it!
We always have a list of excuses ready or various reasons not to do the things we ought to do. And even when we know what we should be doing to overcome those problems, we keep procrastinating it or get lazy to make amends.
I loved the 4 steps as they reflect or direct a finger right back at you, and what you as a person need to be doing to get things moving.
Glad you put up this post Praveen, and thanks for sharing a great post 🙂
Harleena – When we need to defend our actions, we always succeed in getting those “buts” and “ifs” and come up with numerous reasons to prove ourselves right.
Accepting one’s fault is what we have to learn and at the same time, if we do not have the ability to defend the correctness of an action, we should let go of it.
Farouk has explained it well in his article. Thanks for visiting.
Great article. Thanx for sharing this.
crisp and neat 🙂 loved the mirror tip ..
I like the second step where a person can stand in front of the mirror and can say that this person only can save me.This is amazing and really a positive thinking and can boost the life like a booster.
very good and definitely a booster….

its very easy to hurt someone & say “sorry” But its really difficult to get hurt & say ” Its Ok “
Healing is a skill and it can be learned. Most people just don’t believe it and don’t take the time to look deeper. They don’t understand that it’s the same as learning just any other big new thing in life.
This is a very
helpful post, i hope this really helps me to complete my project.
All the highways could be converted to parkland, and people could live anywhere (not crowded into cities unless they wanted to), and yet still be moments from work.
Thanks for the great post. Money is more important in our life if we want to remain happy.
