Setbacks Only Make Me Stronger

Have you had a setback lately?  So have other.  And then what?

Consider this:

Oprah Winfrey:  “I was raped at age nine.”

Bill Gates:  “I didn’t complete my university education.”

Steve Jobs:  “I used to sleep on a friends floor and returned Coke bottles for food money.  And I would get free meals at a local temple.”

Prime Minister Tony Blair:  “My teachers used to call me a failure.”

President Nelson Mandela:  “I spent 27 years in prison.”

Setbacks happen.  That is a given.   

And we still persist. 

Setbacks don’t mean the end.  Sometimes they are simply the beginning of a new direction.

You get to decide.
