So true, Paul. This quote reminds me of the one "if you think you can, you're right; if you think you can't, you're right." It's all about how we approach things.

As the late Zig Ziglar would say: "Attitude determines altitude".  You won't get very far with a negative attitude. Every challenge is an opportunity.

Hello Paul - moving often involves baby steps, maybe even crawling, as we proceed in a direction which might be in a lot of different directions.

Paul I don't think of difficult challenges as difficult.  I see them more as a challenge to be handled and enjoying the process.  Love love love your photo!

Those words from William James ring true, Paul!  It's much more difficult to succeed when there is an attitude we may fail.
