Discouragement, however, comes most frequently from within, and causes more poverty and crime than almost any other one thing. It is an indirect producer of poverty, because it paralyzes ability and blights efficiency. A person is in no position to produce anything when his mind is full of doubt and fear. When suffering from discouragement one’s whole being is negative, demoralized. Courage, the leader of the mental faculties, is paralyzed, and the judgment is not sound.
