â€œToo many of us wait to do the perfect thing,
with the result we do nothing.
The way to get ahead is to start now.
While many of us are waiting until conditions are "just right" before
we go ahead, others are stumbling along,
fortunately ignorant of the dangers that beset them.
By the time we are, in our superior wisdom, decided to make a start,
we discover that those who have gone
fearlessly on before, have, in their blundering way,
traveled a considerable distance. If you start now, you will know a
lot next year that you don't know now, and that you will
not know next year, if you wait.â€
~ William Feathers
It is indeed ok to stumble and in fact as we move forward in life it is almost impossible not to have a set back, or trip along the path of progress. Â It isÂ inevitable to have growth without some challenges or adversity along the way.
Life Happens ~ Stuff Happens ~ We decide if the stumble is a block in our way or a stepping stone to climb upon.
We decide for ourselves. Â Only you can decide for you.
I choose to look at any set back as a set up for future progress and success.
I faced much adversity in 2011 as I am sure many of you have as well.
But I won't back down, I won't quit. Â I won't blame others for my misfortune - No I am the captain of my ship and the first mate and I am in charge of the handling of my sails. Â Only me. Â Your ship is in your control as well.
How will you guide your ship this year?
What if you see some rocks or some rough waters will you take the time to steer your way out of the trouble.
You won't just drift will you?
You won't blame another will you?
If you take the time to read these and understand that we all stumble then I bet you will take full control of your ship and steer into better waters.
In fact you are right now! Â Smile on my friends and stay hungry and stay foolish. Â Hungry to make a difference and foolish to ignore those who say you can't. Â Smile on! Â Enjoy your ride of life this year!

Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother's way.
