It’s Resilience

Setbacks and failures

give us the opportunity

to learn to be resilient

to improve in the future

from these disappointments

Remind ourselves

we have a choice

to move on

  8. Too true. We only need watch a child learning to walk. Who knows that child could be a future Olympic champion but they will fail again and again along the way.
