Other than fear, the greatest paralyzing factor in life is perhaps discouragement.
You should fight against it and conquer it.
Never wallow in self-pity. Never yield an inch to it.
For it blinds our eyes to see the truth and reality. When we look at things through the lens of discouragement we miss all that should encourage us.
It also blinds our eyes to see others who are in far worse situations than we are in.
So let us cheer up. And accept the fact that we’ve blundered at times. But strengthen up ourselves with the thought that all is not lost.
Still there is a fight left in us to fight one more round. As Dwight D. Eisenhower, four times President of USA said,
“What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight; it’s the size of the fight in the dog.”
So stretch out your hand to touch someone with a loving word or an encouraging smile. And give them the courage to fight one more round.
