How to Deal with Discouragement and Develop Exceptional People Skills
Ever feel like giving up? Do you ever feel so discouraged that even one more day of frustration will be too much to handle?
Everyone gets discouraged at times however 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 goals 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.
Expect to learn by trying new things and to find out what works by making mistakes. Then keep adjusting your approach until you get the results you want.
I went from being shy with people to developing confidence and charm by trying new approaches day after day until I found what worked for me.
It is only because I knew what my goal was that I was able to deal with the frustrations and discouragement along the way.
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?
For example, say there is a person in your community you just cannot get along with. Find some people who have a good rapport with that difficult person and get their input.
You may have got the wrong end of the stick for some reason and as a result you cannot get anywhere with that person. Whereas with the right outlook you may have no problem getting rapport.
You may never know what to do unless you 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 the mercy of the ups and downs of life.
The most valuable gift you can give yourself is the ability to master your emotional state.
The moment I finally understood how to do this was the day my life changed forever. I discovered how to effectively deal with any challenge without becoming overwhelmed.
Until you learn how to run your brain it really is like having a super computer without a user manual. The power to persist when you get frustrated will never be available to you until you commit to learning how to manage your thoughts and feelings.
Feelings of frustration, discouragement and overwhelm are not random occurrences. It all comes down to how you use your mind.
Take control of your emotional state and life becomes a lot easier.
And when you are in a great emotional state it is hard to lack confidence, it is hard to feel nervous meeting new people and it becomes very easy to enjoy expressing your opinions.

Thought Patterns To Create Success
Let's say you're ready to change some aspect of your life - perhaps the way you eat or how much you weigh. If you've ever decided to create a permanent change in your life before, you know it's going to take a lot more than simply acting (i.e. eating or dieting) differently. What's required for permanent change is a shift in your old limiting self-talk and lots of positive energy.
Accepting Rejected Thoughts
Sometimes we are in a position to look into the lives of other people. It could be through a book, or a movie, or a story we hear, or occasionally it could be someone that we meet. Sometimes when this happens, we see qualities that we truly admire, and we think that we would like to have those qualities. Perhaps we just look at the person and think that we would like to be like them. Maybe we hear what they have said and think that we would like to be able to say things like that. It could be that we would like to have what they have, or do what they do.

Using The Negative in a Positive Way ? God Does It All the Time
I loved Norman Vincent Peale's, Power of Positive Thinking as much as any book I have ever read. I have read Napoleon Hill's books and I am an ardent believer in almost everything Dale Carnegie ever wrote. I have notes scribbled on the back pages of my Bible from Carnegie's?How to Win Friends and Influence people, albeit I refused to read it at first thinking the title was too corny. For years now I have both pondered and studied the effects of positive thinking and talking, as against negative thinking. I have agonizingly and carefully begun to approach something that might at last qualify for a conclusion.
Comparison - The Great Destroyer
In speaking of comparison we need to be aware that we should never compare ourselves to others. No other person has our unique qualities. No one else has ever gone through the exact same circumstances or has had the precise physical characteristics or thoughts we have. We are each unique in our own special way.

How Gratitude Can Be Your Partner in Life
Gratitude is one of the most important things you can practise if you want to manifest unlimited wealth. One of the best ways to keep abundance and wealth flowing into your life is to give thanks for what you have today. By focusing on what you already have, you allow yourself to receive even more, so it is really vital to practise true gratitude.
When you look at your future in terms of your business and/or professional career, do you see unlimited potential or do you see a lack of opportunities? Recently, many of my clients have asked me how I remain so upbeat and optimistic about the future. They cite the predictions that claim there won't be enough jobs, or that companies don't have the money to invest in their employees as good reasons to be cynical and pessimistic.
