This week I came across a quote from Dave Ramsey I felt was inspiring:
Success is a pile of failure you are standing on.
Life is full of challenges and sometimes things just don’t work out the way we plan. That’s a given we have to accept.
However, accept those setbacks as learning opportunities. You’ll be standing on them someday!
