This Monday’s quote is, “you may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.” Margaret Thatcher

This is so true on multiple levels. Often times we want to try once and if it doesn’t work, then we feel as though we failed. When truthfully, sometimes you have to fight more than once.

The process is the true gift, and sometimes that process requires us to keep fighting. Have you ever been unsuccessful on boards or a test and felt defeated or like a failure? I know I have, but you have to (cue Aaliyah) “dust yourself off and try again.” The amount of attempts doesn’t define you, but the fact that you kept fighting does. That makes it even better when you do reach your goal.

Keep fighting!
