Grab onto this truth when the stakes are high, reaching your goal is uncertain and you haven’t (yet) gotten what you wanted. How does that make you feel? If it takes the wind out of your sails – challenge your mindset. Don’t go for destiny, increase the probabilities. At the end of the week the question isn’t: did I get what I wanted? The question is: did I do my best to increase my chances of getting where I wanted to go? If the answer is yes; that is success. If you narrow your focus you miss out on what life may want to give you.
