MINUTE WITH MAXWELL
TODAY’S STATEMENT OF STRENGTH
“One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn't pay to get discouraged.
Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.” -Lucille Ball
Hi, Lucille Ball, the great comedian, has a tremendous statement of strength for us today on Minute with Maxwell. My name is John. Here's what Lucille says, ‘One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn't pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.’ It also can restore faith in others and faith in your life. But here's what Lucille Ball basically says. She said, I learned that discouragement doesn't pay. So, let me ask you a question. When does discouragement become an asset to me? When does my discouragement become an asset to others? The answer is never. I have never met a discouraged person and walked away from them and said, Wow! I just have received so much hope from them. I just feel like I can conquer any-- no, no, no, no, no. Discouragement's contagious. It drags everybody down. So, Lucille Ball was right. Doesn't pay. Doesn't pay for me. Doesn't pay for you. Doesn't pay for Lucille. It doesn't pay. What part of discouragement fascinates us? I'm John Maxwell. Thanks for joining me today on Minute with Maxwell.
