We all like to have a slice of "good fortune" now and again... and it might even be you, yet good fortune is not a solid strategy to rely upon

Becoming good to start with then progressing to "excellence" in the long run... is the result of effort... tenacity and intelligent practice.

Not just as an individual... the child who does not learn to walk the first day... or the violinist who does not win a competition at the age of eight... and organizations who do not plan their projects well.

The men and women who are good then grow and develop "success" in the long run fail a lot... especially at the beginning... they make a lot of mistakes.

So... when you fail early... realizing that this is part of the deal... the due's you pay for being good... then excellent and successful in the long run.

Every rejection is a gift... every mistake is an opportunity to learn and to do it better next time. 

An opportunity to learn how to bounce back to succeed... and not break and quit. 

Do not waste those incredible moments to learn and grow more.

Sometimes... getting "good fortune" at the start means that you fail to learn resilience and tenacity... and you lack the tools to deal with "adversity"... to grow and become better. 

Remember... the long run is a lot longer than the start is.

The "start" is just the first step.

And "good fortune" is very fickle in whom it favours!

May You Enjoy A Prosperous And Productive Day

Yours Sincerely

Ange Fonce
