Top 4 Quick and Sure Ways to Conquer Discouragement

Published

on

Discouragement occurs when you lose enthusiasm, faith, or confidence. There are many sources of discouragement. Our friends, parents, or the society can discourage us from pursuing our goals. Besides this, some life occurrences such as experiencing a financial loss, or losing a business partner, can also discourage us. It is easy for you to give up when you are discouraged because discouragement might result in you lacking the energy to work hard. However, the good thing is that you can conquer discouragement by doing the following: –

  1. Trusting Yourself

A good way to overcome discouragement is through trusting yourself. Trust that whatever is bringing the discouragement has no power over you. Believe and affirm that you can overcome discouragement.

Because discouragement creates the lack of confidence, trusting yourself makes you regain confidence hence enabling you to conquer discouragement.

  1. Ignoring the Naysayers

A major source of discouragement is the Naysayers. Naysayers are people who tell you that it is impossible for you to achieve your dream/goals. Though they seem powerless, they can have a negative impact on your confidence if you believe in them. Therefore, avoid them at all costs, and if you can’t avoid them, just listen to them, but ignore whatever they say.

  1. Research on People Who Had the Same Experience as Yours.

There are millions of people all over the world who faced discouragement and overcame it. You can find them on the internet, check how they overcame discouragement, then implement their solutions to your situation. This method works most of the time; it seldom fails.

  1. Pushing Through The Feeling

If you use all the above methods and still fail to overcome discouragement, you will have to push through the feeling.  For instance, just wake up even when you feel too lazy to wake up. Work when you don’t feel like working. Just continue moving forward even when you lack confidence, and you will automatically overcome the discouragement.

Successful businesspersons continue working on their businesses even when they experience losses; the best artists continue composing songs even when some of their songs fail to please their fans. They never stop. Therefore, don’t wait for discouragement to leave, evacuate it as fast as possible by NEVER STOPPING.

What Proves God is Good And Willing to Help You?

Published

on

N/B – I use the terms, ‘God,’ ‘his,’ and ‘him’ because they are the most common words used in reference to THE CREATOR. 

I started questioning God after realizing that many individuals are going through difficulties. However, I never questioned his existence because creation is enough evidence that God exists. I only questioned his goodness, and willingness to help and guide us.

Sometimes I wonder if God is really good, loving, and caring because nothing proves so. Or do you have proof that God is good and caring? Our prayers are seldom answered, life is unfair, and most of the time we get what we don’t want even after praying, and believing in God.

Does God really give us what we want? Does he really care for us? If so, why can’t he make life smooth for us?

When bad things happen, we are always told to stay calm because it’s God’s will. It seems God forces his will on us, and what he wants will happen whether we like it or not. What if God is an evil spirit who doesn’t give a freak about us? What if he enjoys seeing us suffering? What if he’s not interested in helping us achieve our dreams?

Recently, I realized that we always work for whatever we want. Nothing is given for free by any power. If you want inner peace, work on it. If you want riches, work hard, and if you want a stable relationship, work for it. God will not give you these things if you pray without working hard for them. You cannot pray hard, sleep all day, and expect blessings. The surest way to get blessings is to work for them.

With this in mind, what role does God play in our lives? Maybe he does nothing because he’s neither good nor bad. Maybe he just created the world and left us to deal with it in whatever way we can. Maybe he never interferes with our daily deeds, and that’s why he seldom answers our prayers.

Maybe we are the gods, and we have the power to overcome hardships and get whatever we want. Or maybe he does nothing because he knows we are powerful and intelligent enough to pass the tests of life.

Anyway, until today, I have never discovered something that proves God is good and willing to help us. And for the people who claim God helped them, could God have helped you if you didn’t do anything? Maybe you just helped yourself.

Don’t misunderstand me. I believe in God, and I know there are great benefits to those who can align with his power.  For this reason, I just want to know ‘Him’ more. I think I’m doubtful because I just don’t know how to make ‘Him’ help and guide me, or I don’t know how to establish a connection with ‘Him’.

Despite my doubts, I trust that God might be a good God, and I know the problem is that I don’t know how to align with ‘Him’.

I, therefore, want you to help me realize how I can establish a connection with ‘Him’, and make ‘Him’ help and guide me towards a prosperous life. I want ‘Him’ to answer my prayers, and help me make a change in the world. I need to help many poor folks because living near a slum/ghetto has made me realize that some people really suffer. I must help them but I know I can’t without the help of a Higher Power. I, therefore, need God’s assistance, and guidance. But then, does God really help us? Is The Creator interested in guiding me?

Do you believe God is good and willing to help you? If you do, explain in the comment box below why you think God is good, and how he’s helped you.

5 Awesome Benefits of Becoming ‘Unmaterialistic’

Published

on

A materialistic person is an individual who is too attached to money or material possessions.

After studying prosperity for the last three years, I realized that materialism is one of the main factors that make people fail to achieve success because it leads to excessive spending.

For this reason, unmaterialistic people have high chances of succeeding. You become unmaterialistic when you stop prioritizing the ownership of material possessions.

Being unmaterialistic can be very advantageous because of the following benefits it will bring upon you.

  1. You stop being scared to follow your passion

There are high chances that you’ll be broke for a while if you follow your passion because it might take long before you monetize it. For this reason, it will be hard to follow your passion if you are materialistic as you won’t withstand being broke and unable to buy things.

However, if you become unmaterialistic, you will bravely follow your passion because you can afford to be broke, and you can also live with little material possessions while trying to monetize your passion.

  1. You invest in productive ventures

A lot of us complain that we don’t have money for investing or starting businesses, but the funny thing is that we have lots of money to buy expensive gadgets. Our obsession with material possessions has resulted in us prioritizing the buying of products. Today, people can spend $ 1,000 on a TV set and still complain that they do not have money to start a company/business.

If you end your obsession with buying material possessions, you will realize that you have a lot of money to invest. Trust me, the money you spend on buying the latest gadgets is enough to start a million-dollar company.

  1. You stop comparing yourself to others

People who love comparing themselves to others are often materialistic because their main basis of comparison is usually money and material possessions. They look at their friend’s cars, or houses, and compare them with theirs so that they determine their social positions.

Therefore, you will lose interest in comparing yourself if you are not excessively concerned with material possessions.

  1. You become less worried

If you become unmaterialistic, you worry less because you won’t be attached to too many temporary things. Materialistic people worry more because they often think about the possibility of losing their possessions.

Besides this, the fact that material possessions are temporary makes materialistic people worry about how they will replace their possessions when they become obsolete. Lastly, materialistic individuals often worry about their social positions, and how they will increase their possessions.

  1. You become grateful

Materialistic people are seldom grateful because they are never satisfied with what they have. They are always looking for the next gadget to buy that they fail to be thankful for what they have.

However, if you become unmaterialistic, you will always be thankful because you will often focus on what you have instead of concentrating on what you don’t have.

Concluding Remarks

Avoid prioritizing material things and you will be one step ahead because you will bravely go your own way, and you will have extra money to invest in your dream. Besides this, you will attain a peaceful state of mind because you will stop comparing yourself, and you will be less worried. Lastly, you will be happier because you will be grateful for what you have.
