"It's not the wrong way, you just eliminated one way to get there." - Stacey B
That successful person you admire, did not give up because of one or two downfalls. Success doesn't come to those who wait, you must rise from every fall and look for the next opportunity or step up to the challenge. It is more than clear that we all undergo trials and tribulations, the way we respond to them is what matters.
So, have faith, hope, and genuine love. Please remember that works without faith are dead.
Dust yourself off and try again.
Two gains, for every loss. Will you rise up to the challenge?
