Building your future.

My young son is playing with his blocks this morning, taking them one by one and stacking them on top of each other. Slowly he progresses along; building things up and in a moments notice everything comes crashing down into a pile of ruble on the floor. Is he discouraged? No! He just starts from the bottom building the blocks back up, one by one into a new tower, this tower surely to be better than the last.

Let’s take a lesson from my son playing with his blocks. When something you are working on does not turn out right or comes crashing down after you worked so hard to build it up; don’t be discouraged. Experiences like this can actually be kind of fun, it allows you to rebuild, to try a different route, to learn from your mistakes and move forward in a different direction to the same destination.

My son enjoys the rebuilding process so much he intentionally knocks down his blocks just so he can start over again. What an opportunity to correct our mistakes and rebuild with improvements as we reflect on what we really sought after all.

Learn from and build upon your setbacks.
