008 - 4 Ways to Stay Encouraged During Difficult Seasons

You're a leader, an entrepreneur or ministry leader. You have big plans, but things aren't going the way you thought. Discouragement starts to set in. Maybe you start to doubt yourself. "I can't do this. Maybe this wasn't the right decision. Maybe I should quit before it gets worse." It's a dark time for you.

What can you do when difficult seasons roll in? Here are the four things I do.

  1. I get near supportive people.
  2. I read books that inspire me.
  3. I maintain a habit of taking a Sabbath.
  4. I don't trust my feelings.

Are you a leader that needs to talk with someone? Contact me. I'd love to chat with you.
