Discouragement is inevitable in life. No matter who you are and what you do, you will face discouraging moments from time to time.
How should you handle discouragement?
Losers give in to discouragement. In other words, they allow themselves to be discouraged.
Winners say no to discouragement. And not only that. More often than not, they look for ways to turn discouragement into a source of encouragement. In other words, they continue after their goal with even more vigor and determination.
This is what you have to do if you want to become a winner. When discouragement knocks on your door and wants to come in, refuse to open. Open instead to encouragement. Even if the latter has not come knocking, extend an invitation to it.
This is the simple way to handle discouragement. Prevail on it. Don’t let it prevail on you.
