It’s easy to look at someone who’s successful at just about anything and be more than a little envious. This is because really, really successful people make it look easy. The irony is that in most cases, getting to the point of real success was, for most successful people, anything but easy!
Author Judy Carter put it this way:
Oh how I wish everything I wrote came out perfectly like a newborn colt that gets up and walks. No such luck. Those of you who will be be successful are the ones who have the stamina to examine and rewrite over and over again, discovering each and every nuance.”
So rather than getting frustrated when an obstacle presents itself, consider it feedback that you’re on the right track!
Get knocked down seven times. Get up eight times.” – Japanese proverb
