Growth is not linear.
One of the most frustrating realities of life is that we don’t continually move forward. We rarely move from success to success without a hiccup—or worse—along the way.
Onward and upward is a position, a vision of the heart, not really a growth trajectory.
When we fall back, we can quickly throw up our hands and question if continuing to try is even worth it.
The first valley is hard; the next one can be even harder.
How do we climb out of the valley, turn around again, pick up and move forward?
We have to see setbacks as opportunities to adjust course and methods, not as the end of the road. Take the hard look at why and use the answers to take a step toward growth again.
But rest in the knowledge, this is normal. You’re not doing it wrong. You are not a failure.
You are human.
Growth isn’t linear. Use the setbacks to move forward, not to give up.
Growth isn’t linear. Keep going.
