"Success is going from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.”
Face it. When you try to accomplish things, there will inevitably be "failures." Accomplishing goals takes effort and enthusiasm to keep going when things are not going well. That enthusiasm serves as motivation. It allows you to take the so-called "failure" and utilize it as feedback. When you are pursuing your goals, there may be obstacles and set-backs. But you can count yourself successful when you keep moving forward--finding ways around those obstacles, and keeping your enthusiasm despite those set-backs.
This week: Think about a goal you have achieved in your life--despite the set-backs and obstacles. Think back on the obstacles you overcame and how you did it. What resources did you use? What support did you need to keep going? How can you use this information the next time you face obstacles in pursuing your goal?
