Click Here to Listen this Weeks Call! 'I can’t believe the results I’m getting as a result of the iCan Attitude lessons.’ Pat Kelly was a nurse for nine years and has spent the last 40 as an occupational therapist. Each day she works with folks who have just about given up or their family has given up on them. The usual response for a person in this industry is to get weighed down with the strain & stress of the patients. However, the results she’s seeing with our products is pulling her clients out of the prison of pain or the dredges of despair.
It’s becoming the norm for Pat to text me with several stories at a time so I thought everyone would love to hear what she’s been doing. Her zeal and passion has taken a sharp increase in the last few weeks and I couldn’t be happier. Not just for her clients, but for the young gal that I get to work with every week.

Greetings... How to Overcome Discouragement
Henry Ford told his engineers to create a V8 engine from a single one-piece casting. They said this was absolutely impossible. Ford told them: “If you think that you can do something or think that you can’t you’re probably right. Now go make one!” …and they did!
A member of my team recently expressed her discouragement to me at the pace of her business development and her perceived under-achievement. How grateful I am that we had the chance to speak. As we ended our call together I thought of how common it is for each of us to get discouraged at some point along the way. To that end, I would like to share with you three key words or phrases that can help each of us combat discouragement (and importantly – teach others how to do the same!).
The first key word is perspective. We need to see discouragement for what it really is. Don’t blow it out of proportion. And try not to worry about the things that may never happen. As Mark Twain said, “I’m an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened.”
The second key word is people involvement. Hang around positive people! We don’t have to go through discouragement alone—nor should we even try. There are others who can help, who want to help. By the same token, there are others whom we can help. I have often found that if I allow my own thoughts of fear, discouragement and worry to fester alone – they can create a very different reality. How grateful I am for good people in my life that help me to see things clearly when emotions get in the way.
Third, get back to basics. I have often found that in moments of great difficulty or challenge the worry and discouragement I feel can make everything seem so complicated and complex. Often, the solutions lie in getting back to basics. This is the beauty of the Core Consultant message. It is always centered on the basics. Remember – speak to at least one new person every day, show the plan at least twice a week and fill your heart and mind with enriching things on a daily basis – if only for a few minutes. It is amazing how much good can come from the little things oft repeated.
In a blog post Martin Seligman identifies three elements common in pessimistic attitudes: Personalization, permanence and pervasiveness.
Dave and I wish to encourage all of you on journey with Nikken. Will you get discouraged from time to time? Absolutely! And that’s okay. This is all part of our growth plan into becoming more. We know you can do it and we have every confidence in your success.
