How many times have you set out to do something until ‘life gets in the way?’ Well, I hate to break it to you but that’s always going to happen. Life will always get in the way because that’s what life is. But just because it gets in the way doesn’t mean you stop going after what you want.

Can you imagine if every time there was a major storm the airlines said “that’s it we’re done” and closed up and went away. This sounds ridiculous because it is. Instead they reschedule, make changes and deal with delays. Well, life’s the same way.

So the next time you feel as though you’ve fallen behind on something you really wanted to get done or you encounter some unexpected challenges don’t just give up. Learn to live with the delay but continue on. You’ve probably heard the phrase ‘better late than never,’ and if what you’re pursuing is really important to you then you’ll enjoy it even more once you get it.

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” – Thomas A. Edison
