You should never quit just because you are behind.

You should never quit just because you are behind.

I learned a valuable lesson yesterday from a 13 year old. She was playing video games (go figure!!) and was losing in a game. She stopped the game and started over. I said to her, “You should never quit just because you are behind. Never give up, just keep going and you might just win.” She looked at me quizzically and in a very matter of fact way replied to me, “But I am NOT quitting, I am simply ‘resetting’.”

I pondered that for a moment and then realized how poignant that response really is. How many times in life do we need to change our mindset by ‘resetting’ our thought process? Our mind is a powerful force and every single one of us has the power to CHANGE that MINDSET if we choose to.

Hard times are going to come. Sometimes you are going to feel like you are not worth living. Sometimes you are going to doubt your abilities, your strength, your potential and even doubt yourself. Those will be the times when life knocks you down. BUT whenever all these happen, whenever life knocks you down, ask yourself “How did other people get through this?” Tell yourself that “if anybody can get through these, I too can get through.” After all, hard times are like flu, they are just passing by.
