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