Keep chugging along like the Little Engine the Could. Believe it when you chant to yourself: I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.
And then if you discover: whoops I guess I couldn’t, consider it a simple falling down moment and just get up and start again.
All the achievements in my life are sandwiched between oodles of mistakes and mis-starts. I rarely dwell on or share with others about the flops. This is not out of shame, but out of looking toward the goal. If plans A, B, C, D, E, F, and G have all bombed, here’s to going at Plan H with all the gusto possible.
Use the info garnered from the flops and mistakes and mis-starts as data for the next goal. Consider yourself clever for standing up again instead of unwisely allowing falling down to remain as your point of view.
Smile. Be happy. Attack a goal.
