Motivational Power Quote

 

Don't Let a Temporary Setbacks Defeat Us

 

"One of the secrets of success

is to refuse to let

temporary setbacks defeat us."

Mary Kay, founder of Mary Kay cosmetics

   

As I see it. . . . . . . .

Don't let a temporary setback defeat us.

Temporary setbacks are a fact of life, and we all will face them at one time or another.  

Stand up and stand strong and refuse to let a temporary setback defeat us.   

Find a way though, over, or around a setback, focus on the solutions to a setback.  

Don't let a setback control your life; control the setback and the solutions.  

Work though your setbacks focus on the solution and stay positive.   

See setbacks as what they are; temporary.

Not all set backs are temporary. But setbacks in attitude are. Thanks for the positive reminder

They key word here is temporary.  All set backs are temporary unless we allow them to alter our course.

I have always looked at setbacks as nothing more than a speed bump. A small hurdle to cross before we once again make it to smooth sailing on the other side.

Great quote from a Greater Lady -  I too was fortunate enough to lunch with her on several occasions many moons ago and learned more in one seating than in years of business school!    Our choices are what make us what we are today and tomorrow.  The consquence of choice however, is more choice!
