6 Ways to Overcome Discouragement on the Way to Your Dreams

Just this morning I was reading a book called Crush it. The author was talking about being open and honest with your visitors. That inspired me to write this.

The truth about business and following your passion

1) It is not easy
2) It takes a lot of time
3) It takes a LOT of hard work and perseverance


Some business guru's and books make it sound so easy. Just do this and that and you'll be successful. Follow steps one, two, three, and boom you will have miraculously arrived.


I know from myself and multiple close friends of mine, all of which are also going hard after life trying to live tremendous lives and make a difference, that it does not always go the way we think. And it sure isn't easy. There will be hurdles along the way.

A lot of people talk only of their successes. Yet, it's in the failures that we learn and grow the most.

It's in the journey of struggles that we grow and become the people we need to be to handle the vision that is in our heart.

I have failed...many times. I have been denied from investors, lost business competitions, failed ideas, to name a few. I would love to say that I never let any of that stop me. But that is not true.

There was a moment in time I distinctly remember when I let the discouragement of failure beat me.

I was spending so much time trying to build this social business company. Through a connection / mentor I was able to set up a meeting with two top executives of a large company. My meeting was to pitch them for our company as a consultant, coming in to work on helping them integrate strategic social impact into their company.

Long story short, they did not share the same value of making a difference with the poor as I do.

I was unbelievably discouraged. I let the failure control me. It was at a time when we desperately needed some breakthrough. I walked in the door and my wife said she could see defeat on me, which is not normal for me.

To be honest, it took me months to shake off that defeat.


The failures have grown me

The intriguing reality that I have learned as I have thought about some of the defeats and failures is that they aren't really failures if you learn and grow from them. They are part of the process. They have grown me in ways I never could have thought possible.

There is a great quote that is incredibly inspiring Romans 28, "28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose."

I would not be where I am today without having gone through the learning experiences of my failures. I know that they are shaping me to handle the huge dream in my heart.


6 Ways to overcome discouragement and failures:

1) Get around a like minded community

2) Find some mentors who are successful

3) Read about other successful people to get inspired by their stories

4) Determine to NEVER give up

5) Stay Focused don't let discouragement get you off track

6) Spend some time thinking and writing out the purpose behind your vision


These are some things that have helped me after periods of discouragement and failures.

I hope it helps you.

I would love to hear some of your stories so others can benefit from what you have learned.
