I’ve found that my unrealistic expectations are a big source of discouragement. Looking at the progress I’ve made instead of beating myself up for not meeting unrealistic expectations goes a long way toward preventing discouragement. Also, sometimes what appears to be a plateau is really a process of solidifying progress made, which is needed to then go on to more difficult skills and material. Accepting what is instead of pushing helps.
