How do we move on from what was to what will be?
How do we bridge the gap between expectations and reality?
3 Ways to Bounce Forward
1. Normalize Failure and Defeat
No one begins their journey at the top of the mountain. We all have to earn our way up.
A universal human experience of try, fail, learn, repeat.
Ultimately understanding that failure is not bad, it is an opportunity to build character and strength.
