In life, we sometimes get discouraged because things don’t always go as planned. Just because you may feel that you have dropped the ball, don’t be afraid to pick it back up. The most successful people in the world have had the most failures, but they refused to give up! You may not have gotten it right the first time, but try again. It is important to learn from what didn’t work and discover ways and strategies to improve! You have more to gain than what you could lose! Consistency is key! If you are consistent, you will develop a routine and it will become a habit! When something becomes a habit, you can almost guarantee that you will get the results you want by continuing to stay focused and keep pressing despite the obstacles and stumbling blocks! There will still be some occasions where you get it wrong, but don’t count yourself out! Keep going while looking ahead…don’t focus on the past!

None of use are exempt from disappointments, setbacks (whether minor or major), heartache, pain, frustration, guilt, and so on. (I’m sure you get the picture!) Once we accept this fact, it saves us a lot of time on trying to figure everything out. I cannot express this enough, “Your mindset determines your outcome.”
Stop stressing over things you cannot change. Once it’s done, it’s done. From that point, all we can do is move forward. By moving forward, it allows us to make progress. If you do look back, only do it to remember where and how far you have come from. It’s not possible to make the same mistake twice because after the first time it becomes a choice. Since we have a choice, let’s choose to win!
We can’t go through life holding onto things and people that were only meant to be in our lives for a season or two. When we hold on to things or people that have expired in our lives, it hinders us from getting to the next level. We have to learn to let go when it’s time and not be afraid of the outcome. Take a moment to think about some things or people we have been holding on to past the expiration date. Holding on can cause us to lose, so choose to win!
“Instead of looking at the trials we face as a life sentence, look at them as a served term.” Trials don’t last forever–You are free to Choose To Win!!!
