There are two sides to discouragement.
There is the frustration that comes from falling short of your goals. And there is the disappointment that comes from reaching them and realizing that they didn’t bring the joy you expected.
Both are dangerous. Both are harmful. Both can be deadly.
The disappointment is all about expectations, hopes, dreams and motives. If you are experiencing discouragement… look at your motives. If you are in danger of frustration… check your dreams.
