There is a way

When a door is closed to you, somewhere there is another one you can get through. If an obstacle blocks your path, somewhere there is a trail that leads around it. When Plan A has failed, and Plan B has too, there is a Plan C that will take you where you want to go.

When a goal seems impossible to reach, there is something you can do that will make it possible, and that will make it happen. There is a way. And it comes from persistence. Each unsuccessful attempt serves to more clearly define how success will eventually be achieved.

When one approach fails, learn from the experience and start working on another, more informed approach. There is a way, and every action, every effort puts you that much closer. Though the path may twist and turn, it leads to success when you follow it all the way.

— Ralph Marston
