Above my desk is a quote from by Winston Churchill and I’ve had it up there now for over 6 months and still look at it every time I sit down to my laptop.
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts”.
That quote is relevant in every path of life, whether that be in sport, relationships, exams, weight loss or just in life generally. If you pick yourself up having failed what matters most is that you get up and carry on. Learn from what happened and start again.
I’ve certainly realized how true this is both in my personal life and in the life of starting up and running a small business. Life is scary and life is hard but if we give up then we never reach the joy of getting it right.
If you’re on a journey to lose weight and get fit it’s so easy to drop at the first hurdle or give up when the weight starts to plateau. If you succumb to that chocolate ice cream or bag of crisps don’t just give up, put it behind you and start again.
