You have goals, you want to reach them and you do all you can - or so you think - to achieve them, but the chances are that you meet defeat along the way because this is the nature of life. Do you or have you given up? Have you thought that your goal was unrealistic or that you are just not good enough? Did you think; "Well I gave it my best shot, it did not work, so now I will go back to my "normal" life." OR "Who am I to think such grandiose thoughts?" When this happens to you or if it has already happened, I want you to keep in mind and remember that when your plans fail, temporary defeat does not mean permanent failure. It means only that your plan did not work. Maybe your plan needs to be re-looked at, tweaked or even changed completely. If a plan fails, it is not the plan that has failed, but it is the person who created the plan. This may be quite harsh to digest, but it is a fact. So go back to the drawing board, speak to the experts if you need to and make another plan. Do this until you find the plan that works. The success of your goal and of your plan to reach your goal lies in your effort and your persistence. So if you give up after your first defeat, it is you that has failed, not the plan. It works with everything in life. If you can hold onto your desire with all your might, try everything possible until you find what works, you will be met with success? It is up to you. What will you do next time you are met with "temporary defeat"? It works with everything in life. If you can hold onto your desire with all your might, try everything possible until you find what works, you will be met with success? It is up to you. What will you do next time you are met with "temporary defeat"? Increase your chances of making your dreams happen with Persistence, Discipline and Effort.
