Life gives us lemons all the time —
usually, at the most inconvenient time possible.
It’s where every problem and frustration hits you at once (each, on their own, not a big deal, but together adds up to an overwhelming sense of anxiety and lack of control)
‘I got sick and lost my consistency with blogging..’
‘I missed one workout, now weeks have gone by without exercise’
‘Things have been crazy, I’ll get back to it once everything slows down..’
How we see and handle our lemons (aka setbacks) is what separates us from
being brilliant or not.
The hardest thing to accept is
setbacks are inevitable.
Somethings are just out of our control.
Once I accepted that, it was easy to focus on what I can do, rather than pushing against what I can’t.
So how can we take setbacks and use them to push forward?
The best solution for setbacks is just do something.
If you fall off the wagon, just get back on.
Break it down to one small task at a time.
You’ll be well on your way to where you were and beyond.
You have the power to turn trials into triumphs.
