Nothing goes as you think it should – nothing. Discouragement sets in. You get depressed. Why can’t SOMETHING go right?

Discouragement is something everyone faces from time to time because our sights are usually set higher than reality allows. But discouragement only has power over you if you let it. In the face of discouragement you
can still act and learn and adapt and start over and change the course of what might have been.

When you feel yourself slipping into discouragement, DECIDE not to. Think again about your goals and priorities and dreams and know that, although they may need a bit of tailoring, they are still there and still what you want. Don’t give up on them. Modify them to make them more realistic and start all over again. You have the power  to decide what your life will be and you have the power to make it happen.

With determination make it happen this time. Start over. Never let discouragement win.

Sometimes, "not quitting" and "starting over" becomes discouraging because we've done it so many times.

However, we just started over again in November, and it was a big one.

Maybe the anticipation that "this idea will work" is what keeps us going. Then, if it doesn't, we come up with a new idea.

When we run out of ideas, I think we'll run out of time.

Never give up....
