There are many “voices” that keep us down and out in this world. Negative feedback, failures (which, really, are merely setbacks and learning experiences), bad relationships, bad choices, bad attitude.
However, there is one area that covers them all—and if we can just overcome it—-then we are on a path to success, and, realizing our true potential.
Discouragement is what I speak of. And I don’t want to spend too much time on it—or, it could get discouraging (cue snare drum).
This is a place where we just can’t seem to get on our feet…to get going again…and forget the past.
But it is within discouragement that our potential is robbed. No one else is hurting when we are in discouragement, but rather, we are losing out.
Losing out on all that we have the opportunity to achieve.
There is GREAT NEWS!!
You control discouragement.
At this moment in time you can let it go. Let someone else own those words they flung at you…let the past be the past when it comes to setbacks…and, let a bad relationship rest in the place it deserves (it’s over).
Rebounding is a great aspect of the game of basketball. It gives both sides the opportunity to run the court again and potentially score points.
When you let go of discouragement, you’ve made the rebound in the game of life. The ball is yours, and you now run the court.
But on this court, it’s your life.
Take the ball and run with it. No discouragement allowed.
Now you’re ready to create, begin anew, imagine and realized those imaginations, and dreams.
