“Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.”
— William James.
One of the facts about life is that “depression is real”. Most times, depression doesn’t set in as a result of poverty or not having enough. There are so many happy and joyous poor people around the world.
Depression creeps in, most times, as a result of discouragement orchestrated by unsuccessful plans/ideas/projects/goals/proposals.
Whenever one is demoralized, the walls of optimism are shattered as sadness and melancholy are activated. The activated sad mood breeds inner-insecurity, which leads to depression. As it were, the presence of depression gives no room for any creative ideas or development neither does it allow positive energy to thrive. Success is attracted by positive energy and optimism.
Thus, do your best to shut the door against depression and its siblings – discouragement and inner-insecurity. Open your doors to optimism and positive energy. When your requests meet with “NO”, never be discouraged. Continue, resiliently, because the “YES” you seek for might just be some meters away. A single “YES” can obliterate the effects of a thousand “NO”.
Keep pushing, there is light at the end of the tunnel. “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving”, says Albert Einstein. Success is sure, for those with strong willpower!
“I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.”
— Stephen Covey.
