MaDu, listen Bro...
IF you're discouraged, here are a few things to do:
1.) Understand that whatever you are going through is TEMPORARY. It is not forever! As the song goes, "I'm so glad TROUBLE DON'T LAST ALWAYS!" Once you accept the fact that THIS TOO SHALL PASS, you'll feel so much better about everything.
2.) THEN, You have to line up mentally with the desire you're wanting. Meaning, you can't be hypocritical about the change or progress you desire. You can't say to your mind, "I want to lose weight," and when your mind replies back to you, "Ok. Stop eating so much of the wrong things and workout 3 times a week," but you don't. You're out of line with the what you're saying you desire. So, basically DO YOUR PART!
3.) FOCUS on the SOLUTIONS and not the problems. When you know the methodology of solving a problem, you understand that the solution is gained by following the process. Which brings me to the next step...
4.) APPRECIATE the PROCESS! The Bible says, "In ALL things, give thanks! There's no progress without the process. The process can be your ENEMY or it can be your FRIEND.
For example: When you submit to the PROCESS of solving a math problem, you get the answer or a very near correct answer. Guess what, life is the same way. Not all your problems in life are going to be basic math. Some of your problems are going to be like Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, Trigonometry, Statistics or those Corporate Finance case studies. Either way, SUBMIT yourself accordingly to the PROCESS and you will PROGRESS faster to your SUCCESS!
5.) Learn from your mistakes and your SUCCESSES. Know that no matter how much people may front like they were born gifted, few people in the world are actually born gifted in any area. Most people (99%) never get it right the first time! Therefore, understand that you probably won't either, and that's okay. Just keep learning.
6.) DON'T QUIT and Be Patient! There are two types of people in life, SUCCESSFUL people and those who quit! Life can be like the long line at the Post Office. Sometimes when you go to the post office and there's a long line outside the door you have two choices, stand in line or leave.
If you leave the line, you'll have to come back later if you want to make sure your purpose for coming there is fulfilled.
"If you can stay in line long enough, eventually you'll get to the front of the line!"
7.) STAY POSITIVE! It's hard to attract anything positive with a negative mindset and negative surroundings. STAY POSITIVE or FAIL!
How do you stay positive? Well, I'll tell you more on that next week in another blog.
I hope this helps you Bro!
