Edhi Juwono – Encouraging and Discouraging

We cannot expect people will encourage us for what will do or for what we have done. Encouraging and discouraging are not the matter. What we received from the others are not the important thing. The matter is how we can capitalize what we have received.

We need both encouragement and discouragement. Encouragement can be considered as a booster for accomplishing a better performance, but discouragement can be considered as a push for achieving a tougher performance.
