The irony is that the person not taking risks feels the same amount of fear as the person who regularly takes risks.

All is not lost

It may very well feel like you’ve been knocked off track. But perhaps, instead, you have found a better way.

It may seem like a setback. But perhaps it is instead an opportunity for you to fashion a more effective approach.

You may feel like you’ve wasted an enormous amount of time on something that didn’t work out. Yet in that time you’ve created much value that somehow, in some way, you can still put to good use.

It’s not any fun when things don’t turn out the way you planned. Yet many times, it may actually be for the best.

Step back from your disappointment and re-connect with your passion. Know that there is a positive and effective way forward.

All is not lost, because you still have the ability and the desire to make things right. Grab your fresh new opportunity to move forward, and run with it.

— Ralph Marston
