A real estate investor runs into their share of road blocks and discouragement. It is one of the biggest speed bumps in the business and so it is really important that YOU learn how to deal with it or you will find yourself on the side lines.
Having faced discouragement myself this article is not some pie-in-the-sky theory, but it is information that has helped myself and others overcome discouragement. Depression and oppression are all too real for those facing such problems, and though knowledge and recognition of what needs to change is the initial step, it will in itself never be enough.
Real wisdom through application needs to occur, not just mental assent. Hopefully, what follows will provide the keys to such application and any lingering lethargy can be faced and a step by step endeavor to overcome the problem can take place.
What is your Self-talk?
All of us speak words to ourselves that either encourage us with impetus to move upward and onward, or to denigrate ourselves and tear us down. When you look in the mirror every morning, what do you say to yourself? Is it in essence "I am a success" or is it "I am a loser"?
Interestingly enough, your self-talk is partly a product of your environment and partly your own assessment of yourself. Sometimes it is positive and other times it is negative. Recognizing and identifying what many have called the self-talk in your life is an initial first step to turning around discouragement.
Tell yourself there is hope no matter what negative circumstances you face and begin the process to a turnaround. Pinpointing destructive self-criticism and cutting it off is a crucial first step in this process. Becoming upbeat and positive begins to transform the darkened thinking patterns you have wallowed in and creates new channels of thought. Stagnancy transforms into productive growth.
