Gwen Hardin,’s Answer
To get rid of discouragement when facing competition is to remind yourself of your strengths and qualities that you are good at. Also, take 5 - 10 minutes a day and do small doses of meditation to remove stress and negative thinking. Write out a positive affirmation about yourself and repeat it during your meditation. Self-care is always important because it reminds you of your self-worth. Staying active in any form of exercise or participating in hobbies and interests removes barriers of discouragement and will also help clear your mind.
