 “There are moments when troubles enter our lives, and we can do nothing to avoid them. But they are there for a reason. Only when we have overcome them will we understand why they were there.” – Paulo Coelho, ‘The Fifth Mountain’

“Setbacks happen in life. Though we may not be able to stop them, we may choose whether to get affected by them! We must move on from a state of overthinking about our setbacks to a state of achieving calm when happiness, peace, and tranquility can be achieved!” 

― Avijeet 

“The road of life is paved with daily successes, a great number of them penny and nickel triumphs. Sadly, these little feats are often seen as worthless―even failures―because we dream of greater gain. Our greed keeps us focused on a gleaming pot of gold waiting at the end of some elusive rainbow. And, despairing a big loss, we fail to see the value in small achievements.” 

― Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway: Quotes, Verse, and Grumblings for Every Day of the Year


“Remember that setbacks are only challenges in disguise. Look at them as lessons . . . don’t waste time beating yourself up. Just get back on track and focus on what you want. It’s up to you , and you will do it!” 

― Jorge Cruise
