The attack of the enemy is this: “If I can keep you discouraged long enough, I can convince you to quit.” A discouraged leader brings down their team. The leader is the thermostat. Differences between discouragement and holy discontent: Discouragement: stagnant Holy discontent: active Discouragement: hangs its head Holy discontent: raises its eyebrows Discouragement: blames Holy discontent: unites Discouragement: focuses on limitations Holy discontent: focuses on possibilities Discouragement: brings down a team Holy discontent: inspires a team “Discouragement isn’t the enemy. Staying discouraged and causing it to eliminate you is the enemy.”
