Sometimes we tend to get discouraged very easily. Your business idea fails. You don’t receive what you might want or need. You fail miserably in a life crisis. You fail a test. You feel super discouraged, because nothing seems to be successful. Don’t worry there’s hope.
Firstly it’s super important to realize that the job, results, outcome will always be Black And White, BUT how you feel isn’t! Thus it’s important to not only sometimes know that you will be okay in a few days time, but you actually have to believe it. This is vitally important in being successful. Sometimes you need to embrace the feelings, other times you just need to shift them aside for a moment.
Secondly you need to know that success isn’t measured in the outcome. It’s mostly measured in the everyday things. The everyday yes! What I mean by saying this is that success is measured in perseverance![Romans 5] It’s measured in you not giving up, but doing hard things anyway because you know at the end of the day everything will be okay!
You need to have an attitude where you don’t take offence. Sometimes you burn, sometimes you earn and other times you learn. A heart that takes offence will never be able to learn to the fullest. People will not like to help, correct or inspire you, because of your attitude. So change it!
Be okay with the fact that sometimes you will have to say your sorry. But here’s the thing about that : You have to actually mean it and not just say it!
Be willing to learn in every situation. There will always be something that you don’t already know. So it’s important to actually be willing to learn and not just think you know everything. Life is a journey and it’s full of everyday learning opportunities. Don’t give up because it feels hard. You might just be a few seconds away from a mother of a breakthrough. Think of it like this: If you give up now, you won’t know the results of a few more minuets. You will always be disappointed and you will always wonder what would have happened.
You need to be willing to admit that you failed in order for you to stand up and fight again. Don’t live in denial. Be honest with yourself and the people you do life with. It might be something as stupid as a habit that you’re trying to break, but it seems like you’re not getting there. Find someone to be honest with! Find someone that will help you and will not judge you! Remember life is a process and as long as your breathing you still have the ability to move forward! There’s no giving up anymore!
Finally, God is always there to pick us up when we failed miserably! He loves it when we come to Him and finally ask His help! Yield your heart to Him again. You might just be amazed! If you’re not so sure about God and His existence, why don’t you give Him a try? What do you have to lose? You can simply begin talking to Him and telling Him that you believe with your heart that He send his son to die for you so that you can be saved. Ask for forgiveness and start having faith. Believe it with your heart and confess it with your mouth.
“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9
You’re getting there!
