Failure is Not an Option _ \"In achieving your goals, you may run into roadblocks. Don\'t let that stop you, go around, over, or under. If you are committed to your goal you will find a way.\" _ Catherine Pulsifier. By deciding from the very beginning that failure is not an option you set yourself up for success. Use your desire and drive to accomplish your goal; imagine how wonderful your life will be with the completion of your goal. Or perhaps contemplate the opposite: how unfulfilled and stressful your life is without it. Regardless of the method of motivation, you must never quit trying to reach your goal. Stay Positive _ \"Life\'s ups and downs provide windows of opportunity to determine your values and goals. Think of using all obstacles as stepping stones to build the life you want.\" _ Martha Sinetar. Despite all the previous steps that you\'ve followed to prevent any roadblocks from showing up on your path to success you will still inevitably run into them. But I have one piece of advice for you: don\'t get discouraged. Recognize that every set back and obstacle is an opportunity for improvement and learning. Recognize the benefits of being where you are right now: whether it\'s learning how to budget or live a healthy lifestyle; there is a positive to every situation.
