A Setback Can Be a Spring Board to Success


"Sometimes by losing a battle

you find a new way to win the war."

Donald Trump, American entrepreneur


As I see it. . . . . . . .

A setback can be a spring board of success.  

The way we look at setbacks will determine our direction. A setback viewed as a temporary condition is a spring board to solutions. A set back viewed as overwhelming without options to correct the situation become a terminal condition.      

A setback looked at as a learning experience and can be turned into a positive experience.

Turn a set back into a catalyst for your future success.

I really enjoyed your quotes. Sometimes we have to turn the negatives into positives, even if it sets us back a bit. Always keep your chin up.

I hope you'll remember me if you learn of anyone moving to "The OC" and I will do the same!

Hey Lou,

I couple of years back I was the proud owner of a development company in San Diego. Life was good and money was plentiful. Well we all know what happened to So Cal real estate and I was sitting on a bunch. So I landed here in Austin licking my wounds and generally feeling sorry for myself. Anyway one day I took my then 4 year old son to see a movie, I think it was called "Meet the Robertson's". There was a line in the movie that they kept repeating over and over. I felt like I was supposed to be there to hear it. What was the line you ask, "keep moving forward". You never know where your inspiration will come from.
