It's easy to get discouraged when something you really want to work out doesn't. Disappointment is a harsh feeling to deal with and it can change our mindsets fairly quickly about a goal or an idea we had. Fear of failure and impatience can also make it hard to stick to a goal but this post is about getting past those negative feelings.
Just because there's bumps in a road, doesn't mean the road stops. I struggled with this for a long time because I wanted things to work out right away. If it didn't I felt like a failure or that I should give up. However, I've realized that consistency is what gets me closer to my goals. If something doesn't work, I've learned to accept that my way was flawed and that I should learn from my mistakes. From that, I can try a different approach to get to the same end goal. Sure enough, trying different ways sometimes did help me become more successful. Sometimes, though, it's not about different approaches, but patience instead. Great things generally don't happen quickly. If something isn't happening right away for you, trust that it's because you still have more to learn, more to do, and more to prepare for before you reach your end goal. Be consistent and keep trying if you want something bad enough.
Keep talking about your ideas and plans. Keep speaking it into existence. Get yourself out there, meet the right people, acquire the right resources. All of this is easier said than done but that's because you have to prove to yourself that you're worthy of accomplishing this goal. Prove that you're willing to work harder and think outside the box because you do want it that badly. You have to prove it to others around you and to the universe that you will go the extra mile for you to accomplish the things you want to. Nothing good comes easy, but you must keep going.
We are a generation of multitasking, multiple jobs and side hustles, and overall being busy as shit. I've seen so many good ideas and so much creativity come from a lot of us. But keep in mind that having too much on your plate can cause inconsistencies. Trying to make too many things happen at once makes you look like you have trouble committing to just a few things or even one thing. It's hard to properly nurture your ideas and goals when you're trying to give all of them a chance at once. Remember, one thing at time, one day at a time. Finish one thing before you start another to avoid being flustered and overwhelmed. You don't want to have a bunch of incomplete projects because then it gets harder to complete them. So don't do too much at once so that you can actually work on being consistent.
