Setbacks happen

Setbacks are inevitable. For example, you might…

  • Buy something silly when you’re trying to save.
  • Eat junk when you’re trying to eat healthy.
  • Have an emergency that wipes out your emergency fund.
  • Get injured when you’re trying to get in shape.

Things happen, but they don’t have to stop you.

I sprained my ankle horribly this week, but I’m not done moving. It would be easy for me to give up my triathlon training and sit on the couch. However, I’d rather adjust my mindset to fit my new physical state. Soccer is OUT, but running in the pool is IN. 

Yep, it’s time to switch tracks.

Setbacks happen, but they don’t have to stop you in your tracks. Instead, you might just need to make some adjustments.


  1. Sometimes setbacks lead to other opportunities or something even better than your original goal. Best of luck to you on your training- your attitude alone will certainly get you far! I’m new to your blog and looking forward to visiting again soon.
