Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down within incredible swiftness.

Admit your mistakes, acknowledge your setbacks, and they lose their control over you. Everyone makes mistakes. In fact, you may very well be wrong more than you’re right. The key is to recognize the errors and get back on course.

If you make a wrong turn, you don’t have to keep going down that road. Turn around and get back on the highway. The sooner you get back on course, the sooner you’ll arrive at your destination.

Maybe you’ve had a bad day. Maybe you didn’t accomplish all you set out to do today. Don’t waste tomorrow by fretting about it. Get on with your journey. Pick up where you left off, and leave the setback behind. Move forward. Even when you get kicked back, move forward.

You determine the direction in your life. No matter where you find yourself, you can always move in the direction of your goals and dreams.

— Ralph Marston
