Determined enough

You deserve the very best achievement of which you’re capable. The challenges and setbacks and disappointments are there to make you determined enough to get it.

When it absolutely seems like there’s no way forward, keep going. There’s a way.

If you’re not getting the results you expected, see it as an opportunity to experiment with other approaches. You’ll likely find something that works even better than you could have imagined.

Eventually you’ll look back on all the challenges and be thankful for them. You’ll realize that the strength and effectiveness gained in working through those challenges added great value to the whole undertaking.

You won’t avoid all the setbacks, but then you really wouldn’t want to. For you can choose to take them all in stride and let them make you that much stronger, that much more determined, and that much more successful.

Instead of feeling sorry for yourself, feel inspired about yourself. After all, you had the courage to get started in the first place and you have the determination to keep going no matter what.
