Get rid of discouragement before it gets rid of you...

Discouragement causes a person to wallow in pity and do nothing.

This doesn't have to happen, but unfortunately it does. Once we realize discouragement is a form of self pity, we begin to take a long look at ourselves and hopefully decide to act.

Do something that will take you out of a negative situation. The answer to discouragement is positive action.
