We All Fall At Least Once It’s Getting Back Up That Makes a Difference

At some point in our lives, we all feel as if we’ve hit a rough patch. Everyone’s rough patches are different, but what defines our character is how we respond to this adversity. No matter the circumstance, it can be hard to get back on our feet after a failure, but it’s important to try. I’ve been running my own businesses since I was 14 years old, and I can tell you from experience that I’ve had many failures along the road. But I always adhere to the old saying, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” Getting back up to move forward in life is how we progress and learn from our mistakes. Anyone who claims they haven’t had many failures in their life isn’t telling the whole truth. Growing wiser to make better choices is part of life. Getting up again after a failure or a loss can be inspirational to you and those around you. By continuing to work hard toward your goals, others around you will be lifted up with you as well.

Take this time to think about what helps you stay motivated in the goals you’ve set throughout your life, no matter what they might have been. Like hockey players, we all fall many times, but just like the professionals, we must get back up and keep going. Use these past accomplishments to your advantage and work every day toward your goals in 2020. A little at a time will go a long way if you keep at it!

a different perspective can change it into something positive. Now is a perfect time to try.

Around this time of year, many New Year’s resolutions and goals people set for themselves are starting to fade.
