Stairway Theory (For those considering a restart)

  • This is a repost. I figured I should start a forum.

    "I was just walking up the steps to my office and I kinda tripped a little and an analogy just came to me. Imagine a BFL challenge as a flight of stairs. Each step represents 1 day of the challenge. There are 84 steps to the top. If you stumble or trip a step or two on a staircase you wouldn't go back to the bottom and start back up the stairs again? So why do some of us restart a challenge when we mess up a few days and fall down or lose focus? Just pick yourself up and keep moving upwards till you reach the top."

  • In a nutshell, it's how we handle the stumble that is the magic formula to success. It builds character, determination and success if we continue the journey at it's most challenging point.

  • Bump :) I might be injured but no restart for me...
