Tough People vs Tough Times

We have all experienced good and bad times. But for the most part, good and bad times are decided by how we deal with each and every situation. 

This has definitely been a very challenging year due to various reasons that has made it a very tough year. However tough the times may be, I always remember that nothing beats a tough mind, heart and attitude. 

Thus, “Tough times NEVER last. Tough people always do.” So the next time you think you are having a shitty day, week, month or even year – keep your self motivated by knowing that all tough times will pass. So keep moving forward and take the necessary actions to overcome all tough times.

Ernie,

Tough times will either break us or strengthen us. This is where we accept things beyond our control and make the best out of it.

Not many can do that, the accepting bit ... depends a lot on who is by your side when you are going through it.

Won't tell you to toughen up, you are already a man of steel ... reminds me of SUPERMAN ! :o))

Tough time is the test from GOD to see a human's will power - either they are strong to fight back or weak to give up.

Tough people will always do well as they have learnt the hard way to get where they want to get too and they also understand that tough times will not stay there forever but its needed in their life because those tough times are what mold them to be who they are today...

Couldn't agree more on this, tough people are definitely those who last, tough times are only tests.

Without roughing and toughing it out, Man will not grow as well.

I couldn't agree more with this statement.

Life is all about lesson learnt and continuing to step forward and learning from the past, the mistake, the SHITTY days.

A failure to one person might be a great learning experience for someone else. Do not allow that fear to stop us doing the things that can move us forward to achieve our goals. All the best & great journey ahead towards 2014.

We must look at the tough times and challenges as life's test. When God closes a door for you, He will definitely open another one for you. Those who can stand the tests of time are those who will live a colourful life.

Couldn't agree more. Been a tough year, but things are getting better as I did not give up. Kept looking at all the tough times as a learning curve to better myself, and as challenges to overcome.

It comes down to whether we would bend and give in to tough times, or rise above it, and rise above it is the correct choice.

Yes, I agree. For me I do my best to overcome it before I surrender.

Toughness is define by ourself.

I agree with you Boss. Tough time teaches us to become a tough person! In life, we have to come across tough times to be strong and vise. When we face problems in life, we have to welcome them with a positive thought that all problems are going to shape us to be a better person in future.

Thanks to all my friends who have been there for me during my tough time. These tough games are learning experiences so by the time payoffs arrive, we will be ready.

Woah! This is so true. I have been in very tough situations in my life and am very proud to say that I have overcome them and become even stronger. I have stayed focused based on the advise given by my colleagues, bosses and friends all throughout and it has indeed paid off. If you keep giving up eveytime you face a difficult or tough situation, you will always remain in the same cycle of giving up - starting something new - giving up. After 30 years you will be in the same spot!!

We should improve our EQ ability to helps us to identify, evaluate and control our own emotions and to better understand and manage the emotions whether at work or at home. Everyone has their own personal or family problems and they should clearly know that it is wrong to bring their bad mood to work. We need to be happy and be positive when we are at work as this will helps to increase our energy and create a happier working environment effectively towards higher productivity. So, please stay positive and be creative in handling bad situation whether we are at home or at work.
