How to Turn Discouragement to Encouragement

See below articles on turning discouragement to encouragement...

P.S. One last step to learning to encourage yourself and others. 5) Enjoy the experience along the way. You may never reach your goal, but that doesn’t mean you ditch the climb or diminish the dream. Character is forged in the fiery furnace of never giving up. After getting to the volleyball state finals her senior year, my daughter’s team lost the final match. But they were the only Bremen High School girls’ team to get that far and made so many wonderful memories during their championship run. The Air Force Falcons basketball team lost the first game of the conference championship and did not get a bid to the NCAA tournament. But they did get a #1 seed in the NIT, hopefully playing at Clune Arena several more times this week. Only one team can come out on top, but no one ever loses if they learn to turn discouragement to encouragement and enjoy the experience along the way.
