I skipped a few days, so I am just going to go to day 9 instead of making up days.
Lesson #9 - Don't get discouraged.
I get really discourage when I make progress in my life to Break My Mold, but take one step backwards. In fact, I beat myself up over it a little too much sometimes.
One of my big things is being better with money. When I spend money on something I shouldn't have or make a mistake with balancing the checkbook, I get really aggravated with myself. In fact, sometimes, I am so upset I can't sleep. I just think to myself, "why did you do that?" Sometimes, I am not very nice to myself.
It's very easy sometimes to be discouraged because you are not getting where you'd like to be fast enough or you make a mistake. But don't get discouraged. Discouraging thoughts are ONLY Satan trying to get a foothold in your life. You just have to keep going, even if it is a backwards step, just keep going forward.
I used to spend alot of time, wallowing in pity. Feeling discouraged. But I don't anymore. I just can't afford in mentally. I've worked too hard and come too far to let myself get bogged down in mistakes I've either just made or made in my past. If you ever want to Break Your Mold, you will recognize discouragement, stare in down, and get rid of it as soon as you can.
