Trade in discouragement

What if you could act to stop discouragement the moment you feel it? The good news is, you can.

In fact, you can transform the negative energy of discouragement into positive, productive energy. To do so, recognize the power you have over your own thoughts, and put that power to use.

Discouragement exists in your mind. It is only one out of many possible interpretations of your situation.

Choose to go with a more empowering interpretation. Choose to go with a positive projection of your possibilities, of the future, of what you can do.

Let discouragement serve its purpose by alerting you to what’s important in your life. Then, trade in that discouragement for courage, energy, and effective action.

Where you go next is a function of where your thoughts are right now. Exercise the power you have over your own thoughts, making them as positive, realistic, and motivating as they can be.

— Ralph Marston
