 Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward. – Henry Ford

After experiencing a setback in my training and fitness this past week, I am learning that setbacks don’t equal the end of things. I am actually excited to be able to revamp my plans, to rearrange my goals, and to see the positive in what could be deemed as terrible. I will not allow this situation to get me down. I will get stronger. I will get faster. I will be better overall because of it.

Question: How do you find inspiration to deal with setbacks – personally or professionally?
