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: –
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
Don’t wait for inspiration: it comes while one is working – Henri Matisse

Discussing Osho’s Concept: ‘Astrology: The Science of Cosmic Oneness.’
Astrology: The Science of Cosmic Oneness is a chapter in Osho’s book, The Hidden Mystery. I fell in love with this chapter because here, Osho provides deep insights into astrology. I love astrology because it reminds me of the many mysterious things about the universe.
Anyway, in the chapter, Osho introduces astrology by claiming that its fundamental laws originated from India since astrological calculations require mathematics which uses digits that were invented in India. He then proceeds to provide the following enlightening ideas.
- Human Beings Are Connected to The Stars
The Sumerians realized that human beings are related to the stars because the stars are responsible for disasters that strike the world. Chijevsky, a Soviet Scientist, gained interest in this idea, and after studying it he realized that nuclear blasts that occur on the sun (the biggest star) cause wars on our planet.
It’s hard to either accept or reject this idea because it’s also hard to either prove or disapprove it. However, the idea might be true because everything in the universe is connected, and maybe this connectedness is what causes the changes in the solar system to affect our planet.
- A Human Being Becomes Sick When He Fails to Be In Tune With The Musical Harmony in The Solar System
There was a certain musical harmony in the solar system when you were born. This harmony affects your health all your life, and living out of tune with it results in sickness.
I think this musical harmony is what we refer to as the Zodiac sign, and Osho believes that to be healthy, we must live in alignment with it.
- The Moon Affects Us.
If the moon greatly influences the water in the ocean, and the proportion of salt in the water in our bodies is similar to that of the salt in the ocean, how then can we firmly conclude that the moon does not affect us?
The moon affects human beings, and many studies have shown that various phases of the moon affect insanity levels. Many ancient societies also believed that the phases of the moon affected people’s behavior. The movies also try to indirectly tell you that the moon affects us. Have you watched in movies how the full moon makes some people turn into werewolves? Just Open Your Eyes, and You Shall See.
- All Animals (Including Humans) Have an Intuitive Source.
Many studies have confirmed that animals can sense climatic changes and impending disasters. Birds usually know when it’s about to snow, and some domestic animals know when it’s about to rain. In Japan, there is a bird which flies away 24 hours before an earthquake. We also have this intuitive source that most of us can’t access because we rely so much on our intellect.
I firmly agree with Osho because studying history made me realize that all animals including humans are intuitive but we humans, lost our intuitive abilities because the modern society became so obsessed with intellectual advancement. We focus on analyzing, researching and critical thinking instead of depending on our gut feeling to understand the universe.
- The Future is not Uncertain
According to Osho, the future exists in the present, and so, we can know our future if we open the window of the present moment. Osho believes that ignorance and lack of knowledge about this idea are what makes us believe that the future is uncertain.
I don’t know what opening the window of the present moment means, and therefore, I ask for your assistance in determining what Osho meant.
“Astrology declares that if by divine grace we can come to know the whole, then the future as such will not exist. But because we do not know the whole – we know only a small fragment – what we don’t know becomes the future.” – Osho
Hope you enjoyed today’s article. Anyway, before I write ‘thanks for reading’ I would love to provide you with a nugget of wisdom. Recently, I realized that only the open-minded people can become wiser. Therefore, never dismiss any piece of information just because it appears delusional.
Remember, the universe is miraculous, and there are many delusional things about it. And for you to understand the universe you must welcome any piece of information and use your gut feeling to assess its validity. Your gut always knows the truth, it is your connection with the universal wisdom.
Thanks for reading. love ya
