The first step in the Cycle of Success is Excitement.
It starts with an opportunity. It could be starting or growing our business, losing weight, a new relationship or a career change. We start our engines and take off!
The future is full of possibilities.
The second step in the Cycle of Success is Failure.
Something happens and we get anxious. Things don’t go our way. It’s harder than we thought. It gets complicated and frustrating. We get tired and second-guess ourselves. We wonder if it will even work at all.… Read the rest
