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 easier to give up when discouraged because discouragement causes demotivation. The good thing is that you can conquer discouragement by doing the following: –
- Trusting Yourself
A good way to overcome discouragement is to trust yourself. Trust that the causes of dicouragement have no power over you. Believe and affirm that you can overcome 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 them. Avoid them at all costs.
- 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. 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 overcome discouragement.
Successful businesspersons work on their businesses even when they experience losses; the best artists compose songs even when some of their songs fail to please their fans. They never stop. Don’t wait for discouragement to leave, overcome it by NEVER STOPPING.
Don’t wait for inspiration: it comes while one is working – Henri Matisse
