‘Success is steady progress towards one’s personal goals’- well, that’s what my fortune cookie from The Peacock Gardens told me last night.
Achieving goals is a daunting journey littered with setbacks. Yet watching our 8 year old son learn to play rugby has reminded me of the secret to reaching goals. Simply put, he refused to tackle. No matter how much I yelled, begged, bribed, cajoled- he could not bring himself to do a tackle. Until someone whispered the secret in my ear.
It’s the secret that has helped me to dust myself off when I’ve failed, and has kept me moving forward. And it’s a secret that works whether you’re 8, or 50.
