Learning how to turn ideas into action

Discouraged / Encouraged

It’s easy to become discouraged. The response is lacklustre, the views are low, traffic is disappointing. This is the point where the doubt begins to gnaw, when escape routes are considered. This is where you have to make a decision – are you in real danger, or are you just discouraged?

Dis – couraged. The lack of courage to follow through. Fact: it is not easy. If it was then everyone would do it. Spectacular results, big pay-days, reaching the summit – it all takes work. Lots of work. It also entails many points where your courage will be severely tested.

Acknowledge these moments. They are many, but they are fleeting. Look how far you’ve come, look how much you’ve already achieved. Once at the ground looking up, now hundreds of metres above sea-level. Swallow the moment, take a deep breath, and allow yourself to become encouraged once more.

Keep climbing.
