Success - Grunge Printed Word Collage on Old Fulvous Paper.

Setting a goal is not the main thing. It is deciding how you will go about achieving it and staying with that plan. (Tom Landry) 

I recently saw a video on Facebook – a young man (teenager) was skinny and wanted to build up his physique.  He had a goal.  One day, he decided to take steps toward that goal.  He started working out.  It wasn’t easy.  At first, he felt like a failure, because he couldn’t even do a pull up. He didn’t give up.  After a year of pushing himself, he reached his goal.  He was no longer a skinny teen; he now had an enviable physique. And he had learned an important life lesson.  He realized that failure is a key to success.  A goal is simply that, unless we take action, accept our failures; and never give up.

 

I need to take heed of that lesson.  How about you?
