Balancing Act

On a recent vacation, I stood in awe while watching a man do a hand stand on top of five stacked wooden chairs. What we sometimes take for granted while being entertained is the time and effort behind each performance. Did Beethoven come out of the womb playing a symphony? Of course not. Did the brave balancer succeed on his first attempt? I highly doubt it.

Remember this. One of life’s treasures is the ability to start over. A setback does not define you.

You read a great book because the author didn’t quit.

You danced to your favorite song because the artist didn’t quit.

You watched your favorite team win because the athlete didn’t quit.

The world is a better place because you didn’t quit.
