Two Steps Forward?


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

We've all heard the saying, "Two steps forward, one step back." But it really just emphasises the negative. It's like saying, "We can't have any progress without losing momentum." Why not turn it around and say "One step back, two steps forward." Now it's a positive encouragment. It now means, "I may take a step backward, but when I do I'm going to take two steps forward."

    I like this--- I am usually the type of person who view the world as "a glass half full" not half this is just my speed. emoticon
