DISCOURAGEMENT

Discouragement.

It happens so fast.  The plan we had didn’t fall into place.

The idea we had didn’t go anywhere.

The communication we thought we had didn’t take place.

The person we are trying to change is never going to change.

The day was planned, but the day took over.

The fact is we know we are better than this,  but we failed.

Again.

 

DISCOURAGEMENT.

THE PROBLEM IS DISCOURAGEMENT LEADS TO

GIVING UP.

QUITTING.

And that’s never ok.

Fall 7, Rise 8.  It’s more important to rise, then to fall.

But it’s real.

We QUIT

On ourselves.

On them.

On everything.

When we quit, we get bitter, defensive, angry, and much, much worse.

The ONLY way to COMBAT DISCOURAGEMENT:

Is to encourage.  And you can ONLY do that through Encouraging THOSE ARE YOU.

That’s why we always have to be picking each other up, dusting them off, and telling them I BELIEVE IN YOU.

BE ENCOURAGING, SAY THINGS LIKE  “YOU ARE ALMOST THERE.  YOU CAN DO THIS.”

Simply believe what you are doing is worth it. BELIEVE.

Encourage.
