How do you handle discouragement when things don’t work out the way you want as you go for your dream?
Discouragement causes so many people to back away from their dream with such thoughts as, “Maybe I am just not supposed to do this thing.” Or, “What made me think I could do this anyway?”
But, not you!
You put a stake a ground and said, “I am going for my dream no matter what.”
As you do this, you expect that there are going to be times when things don’t go according to plan. You understand that the seeming “ups and downs” are all part of the learning process of building your dream.
Here’s a tool you can apply right away when you find yourself discouraged about something. At those times, say to yourself, “This is what it looks like as it is all coming together.”
