My reflection:
Setbacks and disappointments are something we all experience at one time or another. But if you refuse to believe in failure, you’ll be able to find a way to open up all those doors that at one time you saw we’re close to you forever. If you mark something down as a failure, then that’s what it will be. But if you make up your mind to get the better of the situation, an experience that you want is labeled as a failure can become another steppingstone toward happiness. So the next time something doesn’t turn out exactly as you’d hoped, turn it around, be a fighter. Remember: it’s the people who can turn a negative into a positive and bounce back who really get ahead in life.” Mary Lou Retton
