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 them. Therefore, avoid them at all costs.

  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 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, eradicate it by NEVER STOPPING.

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

    Great advice. I was almost giving up because my site wasn’t receiving that much traffic but I pulled myself together and figured out what to do differently and now I’m close to 10,000 monthly views! Now I’m writing to show other people how they can do it too. It’s possible. And I will keep growing my site.

    HI there. Thanks for sharing this. I quit my 9-5 job at the end of last year and working on my blog full time! However I had a few people say some negative things. While I did get more words of encouragement, those few negative comments are the ones that stick sometime 🙁 Such a shame. Like you said avoid them and try not to listen to them. I am doing my best not do and trying to find strength from those who are doing the same thing and are successful. Thanks for the reminders. We all need them now and then.

The Hidden God

The hidden God

I use the word ‘he’ to refer to God because it’s the most common term used to refer to the Creator. Forgive me for that.

If there is a Creator-God, it has used methods of creation that are indistinguishable from nature; it has declined to make itself known for all of recorded history, it doesn’t intervene in affairs on earth, and has made itself impossible to observe.’ – David McFee

According to the theory of the Hidden God, God created the world and the laws that govern it and avoids involving himself in its daily operation. This theory claims that God got tired of involving himself with the physical world, and he let the laws he created to govern it. For this reason, he never involves himself in the affairs of man and the processes of nature.

Individuals who believe in this theory believe praying to God is useless because God never takes part in our affairs. However, they believe God created smaller gods that can answer our prayers because they participate in our affairs and the processes of nature.

Although God is unknowable, I believe this theory is worth analyzing because it makes sense. For instance, it explains why our prayers are seldom answered and why some ancient cultures never prayed directly to God. Many ancient cultures, especially Africans, prayed to ancestors and spirit guides because they believed these entities were more accessible and could take part in their affairs.

Moreover, this theory explains why God never helps righteous people during earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, and other natural disasters despite his ability to help them. As well, it explains why sometimes, righteous individuals are killed by predators, terrorists, and criminals despite living a prayerful and virtuous life.

If God was what Christians and Muslims teach us, these things would never happen to righteous people because, according to these religions, God loves the righteous, and he always protects them. Moreover, if God took part in our affairs as most religions claim, he could have answered most of our prayers.

Therefore, the theory of the hidden god is more reliable than religious theories because it enables people to embrace the world the way it is. On top of that, it enlightens us that we must work on creating the experiences we want instead of relying on God to work on our behalf.

In conclusion, although I agree that God is unknowable, I surely know that it’s impossible for the Creator to separate itself from Creation because Creation can’t survive without the Creator. For this reason, I can’t fully accept the hidden God theory. However, I love it because it enlightens people that it’s their responsibility- and not God’s – to create the life they want.

An Atheist is a Big Fool

An Atheist is a Big Fool

‘The wonders and balance of nature and the marvelous physics of flight present the truths of our Creator in ways simply too overwhelming to discount.’ – Robert Firth, Atheists Are Idiots

An atheist is a fool because he lacks judgment and prudence.

According to an atheist, the universe appeared from nothing. Despite the atheist’s self-proclaimed intelligence, he believes the fine-tuning necessary for life to exist occurred by chance.

The atheist is too foolish to realize that the sun is placed in a perfect position so that we survive, and he overlooks the many natural ecosystems, in which everything miraculously interacts together as a unit.

Moreover, he believes the design that enables different animals and plants to survive occurred by chance. To him, the gills that enable fish to breathe in water, the wings that enable birds to fly, and the roots that enable plants to absorb water were accidentally designed by blind forces. As well, to the atheist, our body organs – that perform particular functions that enable us to survive – appeared from nowhere.

I’ll never waste my time arguing with an atheist because everything in the physical world clearly indicates the existence of an intelligent designer. The seasons, weather patterns, and every living thing indicate the existence of a designer.

‘We humans, as Albert Einstein writes, are in the position of a little child entering a huge library, whose walls are covered to the ceiling with books in many different languages. The child knows that someone must have written those books….It notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books, a mysterious order.

Sensible people – like the child – know that an intelligent force is behind any form of orderliness. However, despite seeing a mysterious order and arrangement on our planet, the atheist insists that this world appeared by chance.

For this reason, never waste time trying to enlighten an atheist because his foolishness is beyond measure. I refer to it as ‘Infinite Foolishness.’ The atheist is too foolish to realize that everything has a design and design can’t exist without a designer.

If you are an atheist reading this post, do me one favor. Go to a mental hospital and receive treatment as soon as possible because your foolishness is turning into madness. Maybe you have an untreated mental condition because any sensible individual that carefully analyzes the celestial bodies and life will definitely come to the conclusion that something brought the universe into existence.
