Keep spinning

Some days it seems like you’re spinning your wheels and going nowhere. When those days come, the best thing you can do is to just keep spinning.

If you give up and stop altogether, you’re guaranteed to never get anywhere. Instead, keep spinning those wheels and you’ll eventually start getting some traction.

Going slow is vastly better than not going at all. Although you might do no better than just staying even today, that puts you in position to move ahead first thing tomorrow.

In every frustration is the seed of opportunity. That opportunity is available to those who refuse to be discouraged even after moving sideways for a while.

Keep moving, and soon you’ll start to move forward again.
