Handling discouragement

Sometimes I am almost discouraged;
At such moments,
I can grade myself 95%
Close to discouragement;
Yet, I end up not being discouraged;
Do you know why?
I recall what I tell people
About discouragement;
Why one should not give in
To discouragement;
And what one should do when feelings
Of discouragement come knocking;
That is how I get over it;
I just tell myself:
“Walk your talk!”
And begin to feel strong again;
Do you walk your talk?
Or all you do is talk;
How do you handle discouragement?
