A Setback Is a Setup for a Comeback (REBLOG)

A Setback Is a Setup for a Comeback  – Unknown

Don’t allow setbacks to derail your dreams. A setback is not an excuse to throw in the towel on yourself, your goals are too important, your better life is still possible, keep moving forward!

I like the analogy of riding a bike.  When you were learning to ride a bike for the first time and inevitably fell off, did you just give up?  No, you got back up, dusted yourself off, and tried again until you learned.  Now did that initial setback somehow reveal your inability to succeed in the future?  Of course not.  If every failure was truly a sign of all of our inability to succeed at something in the future, nobody in this world would even know how to ride a bike!  So the simple fact that you see some people riding a bike every day, should be a reminder to you that your goals and dreams are possible.

The lesson is to never let a small setback stop you from continuing to try.  If you get knocked down, get back up, take a deep breath, analyze what caused it, make any adjustments, and try again the next day.  The most important point being, that you simply keep trying again and again until you make it work.  Babe Ruth said, “It is hard to beat a person who never gives up.”

Don’t allow the rocky terrain of life to flatten your spirit, you can have what it is you desire.  Remember, everything yields to diligence, believe in yourself and keep going till you find a way to make it happen!

Thank you for sharing such great information and a reminder.

** Life happens!  We cannot excel at everything without a setback here and there.  It’s all good.  Don’t give up, dig in, try again, and get going!  You got this!  No matter what you have in front of you, no matter obstacle you believe to be totally impossible to conquer or overcome, have faith and believe in yourself as I believe in you!  You can do ANYTHING you set your mind to.  There are no obstacles, only the obstacles in your mind.  You must be able to tell yourself, at the end of the day, that you tried – your conquered your obstacle and let the chips fall where they may.  You can go away with your head held high!
