Turning Setbacks Into Progress – Moving Toward Creating A Brighter Financial Future

Turning Setbacks Into Progress

Over the last few days, the powers that are – also known as our internet provider – have been working on our neighbourhood’s internet, which left me with spotty connection throughout the day, at best, at times with none at all. I could have spent  the day frustratingly pouting at the ever-growing list of actions that I needed to attend to. After all, I have three websites to run, kids to homeschool, my husbands business ventures to support, and content to research. I had every right to get mad, but after a few moments of letting off steam, I decided not to.  And instead focused on the tasks that I could do.

And instead focused on the tasks that I could do.

Often, when things do not go our way or are seemingly out of control, we have a choice to make – a choice to ponder why  things are not going our way, blaming everything and anything that we can think of, or we can make the choice to focus, finding  solutions, and working on the problems we can fix.

We can choose to take responsibility for our response to setbacks, failures and obstacles. It is up to us, to choose to
take the actions needed for growth, rather than hammering at those things we can not change.

Turn failure into progress


Looking to grow financially, while being either stuck at home with your children or in a dead-end job, might mean that you have to begin to look outside of the box. Instead of not taking action, allowing the frustration to keep you from moving forward, you can find a way to use your free time – however limited – to create passive income streams. Begin blogging, write an ebook about your experiences, or expertise, offer your creative art projects on sites like Zazzle and RedBubble can  allow you to get out of that place of feeling financially stuck.
If you feel like you are lacking skill set, then take some free classes, or read some of the many books available on
the subject of finding and creating an online income.

If you allow those moments of failure, and times where obstacles seem to be in every direction, keep you from moving forward then those obstacles won. If you choose to take action, even a seemingly small one, you have begun to forge yourself toward a new, and brighter future.

The choice is yours
