Makes sense right ?
During my highschool i had this one of my favorite songs - "the climb". I still get chills when i play it. It makes a lot of sense. Sometimes in life its not about how fast you have to achieve a goal. The only thing that matters is that you are moving. With each step you're getting closer to your goal. No matter how big the step is, its taking you in the right direction.
You may break, you may lose on the short run. But on the longer run, failures are healthy, as the saying goes "to improve you must break yourself".
Just keep moving so that whenever you look back, you always find yourself better than you were. Coz that's what life is.. :)
