When your first plan to accomplish your goals doesn’t work — or even your second, third or fourth plan — do you feel like a failure for having to change it up?
You shouldn’t get discouraged when this happens, although many people do. Much to the chagrin of high achievers like me, you simply can’t plan for everything. Instead, your ability to persist in spite of unseen obstacles — and your willingness to change tactics — can help you reach the finish line.
What do you do when you get stuck in the middle of something and you really want to quit?
Maybe you know that you should probably keep going, but you don’t know how. You need to come up with methods to succeed, especially when difficult circumstances are bearing down on you. Among other things, learn the power of persistence, using your “yes” and “no” to stay focused, and resting and recharging are critical.
