Temporary Setbacks or Delays
It is helpful to view what might formerly be seen as failure as temporary setbacks or delays. Both leave open the possibility of a positive outcome.
There are plenty of opinions out there that will say you can’t achieve what it is you set out to accomplish. If we listen to this advice, we can end up feeling like we have a lid over our heads (See Are You Being a Trained Flea?) that is limiting our reach. This doesn’t serve our life in any positive way.Through our own temporary setbacks or delays, and through the advice given by others who have allowed their temporary setbacks or delays to dominate their life experience, we can end up feeling like we are tied to a stake with a very short rope. If we don’t believe in what is possible and choose to go for it we will never have the opportunity to learn new skills or stretch ourselves to any real extent.
Our dreams, and our very life experience, will be equally limited.
Choose it or lose it!
