There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Course correction

The setbacks and disappointments always get your attention. That’s because they have so much to say.

It can be easy to wander off course without even realizing you’ve done so. Yet when you do, something is likely to soon go wrong that will point out the errors you have made.

It’s important to pay attention to the small problems as they arise. For they can help you take action to avoid bigger problems later on.

The setbacks you experience won’t be pleasant. Yet they can bring you a renewed commitment to point yourself back in a positive, effective direction.

When the disappointments come, listen to what they have to say. Learn from the results, both positive and negative, and your approach will improve over time.

The setbacks you experience are usually suggesting a course correction. Learn to let them set you back on track.
