MizzB: Taking a few steps backwards is not a sign of being a coward but to re energize


Keep the Focus

The first quarter of the year has come to an end already. This can be frustrating as most people have not yet seen any positive action towards their life plans and goals. Seeing no change can make one feel lost and stuck without any way out. People tend to make plans at the beginning of each year and at times do set up timelines. This is a way to help you keep track of your goals and achievements.

Unfortunately not all plans work out as intended because of different reasons. Financial stability, unemployment, low salary, poor health, among others are the factors that have a great contribution to the success, failure, or delay of fulfilling your dreams. If you believe in your dreams and their success , you need to push yourself harder to keep going. Don’t underestimate your potential and give it your best dedication and efforts in a consistent way. Yes there will be doors that will be shut on your face, and opportunities denied only to test your persistence.

“Go katakatela morago gase bogatlapa, ke go tsaya maatla” loosely translated as “taking a few steps backwards is not a sign of being a coward but to re energize. Success does not not come easy and unless you keep dusting yourself off, everytime you fall, you won’t make it to the finish line. Just like roads with speed humps, potholes, stop signs and robots, life is not smooth at all.

Do not be discouraged but rather re-look and evaluate your action plans to do things differently. Pay attention to the methods that you use to implement your plans. Doing the same thing, in the same way and expecting different results is not practical. Ask for assistance and take all the criticism in a positive way to allow yourself growth. Change different formulas until you find the one that works out best for you and give good results. There are still a couple of months ahead and a lot can happen during the course of the year. Never give up on yourself no matter how difficult it might be to move forward, just keep moving!
