How to Use Discouragement to Motivate Yourself


Ever feel like giving up? Do you ever feel so discouraged that even one more day of frustration will be too much too handle?

Everyone gets discouraged at times only there are a number of key differences between people who keep on going and those who give up:

1 Focus On Your Goal Not On Your Problems

One of my mentors is a highly successful property developer and he loves solving problems. All day long he can take on one problem after the next and just keep going.

How does he do this when most people would feel overwhelmed?

He understands the importance of focus. He never loses sight of his goal and his goals so excite him that problems are nothing more than stepping stones to the achievement of his outcomes.

If you are feeling discouraged it is very likely because your focus is on what has not worked; your setbacks and your fears.

Discipline your mind to focus on your goals and discouragement will fade into the distance.

2 Ask For Help

You do not have to deal with everything alone. Ask for help from someone who is qualified to help you and act on their good advice.

Two minds are better than one especially when your mind is full of discouragement.

And, you will feel stronger knowing that someone else is backing you, keen to see you succeed.

When you think about it.

The only thing stopping your from getting from where you are to where you want to be is -- learning! Learning an effective approach.

If you do not know the answer why waste time guessing when you can open your mouth and ask?

3 Learn How Your Mind Works

Once you take charge of your thoughts and your emotions you will be able to deal with whatever challenges come your way. Until that happens you will always be at mercy to the ups and downs of life.

The most valuable gift you can give yourself is the ability to master self-motivation.

The moment I finally understood how to motivate myself was the day my life changed forever. I discovered a tenacity that sees me though any challenges I have to deal with.

Until you learn how to run your brain it really is like having a super computer without a user manual. The power to motivate yourself will never be available to you until you commit to learning how to do it.

Feelings of frustration, discouragement and overwhelm are not random occurrences. It all comes down to how you use your mind.

What if you had a simple user manual for your mind with instructions that have already worked for thousands of people?

The information is out there - go study how to run your brain!
